The Civil Service Awards in association with Ernst & Young is one of the most prestigious and eagerly anticipated events in the civil service calendar. Every year we receive hundreds of entries from across the UK civil service and tens of thousands of visits to the website.
This event identifies, recognises and rewards best practice from across the civil service and attracts attendance from the most important individuals from government.
Last year, to celebrate the fifth year of the awards, the Civil Service Awards were held at Buckingham Palace, including a reception from HM The Queen and Prince Philip.

Over 350 attendees including permanent secretaries, director-generals and high achievers from across government will be attending.
This book aims to demonstrate that various creative and smart routes to excellent solutions are possible, by analysing success stories in different areas of local public management from seven European cities in the EPSA scheme – Bilbao (ES), Birmingham (UK), Mannheim (DE), Milan (IT), Tallinn (EE), Tampere (FI), and Trondheim (NO). It concludes by presenting seven steps leading to excellence. The only thing left to find out is: are other cities ready to take on the challenge?
What kind of ideas are behind the remodelling of the state and public sector, and how have these ideas materialized in practice? In this book the authors illustrate what are the driving forces behind the huge amount of public management reforms over the last three decades. Trends and ideas of public management reforms in practice are validated by data from European Public Sector Award cases (2009 and 2011).
The EPSA brings together the best, most innovative and efficient performers
from the European public sector. Outstanding administrative performances are,
after all, produced under different conditions within Europe.
