The Western Australian Premier, the Hon. Mark McGowan MLA, will consider a refreshed approach to the Premier's Awards for Public Sector Excellence. It is anticipated this will include new categories and initiatives which the Premier will launch in 2019. Consequently, there will be no award program in 2018.

News about future Premier's Awards will be posted here and distributed via the Premier's Awards mailing list as it become available.

Premier's Awards

About the a​​wards

The Premier’s Awards for Excellence in Public Sector Management were launched in 1996 to inspire public sector agencies, local governments, public universities and government trading enterprises (public authorities) to strive for excellence in the delivery of their services to the community. As well as recognising and celebrating world-class achievements by those involved in the delivery of public services, the awards play an important role in motivating public authorities to become more innovative in meeting the community’s needs. 

The awards focus on specific initiatives and are assessed on public authorities’ nominations demonstrating success against a number of criteria.

The seven award categories are:

  • Develping the economy
  • Improving Aboriginal outcomes
  • Improving government and reducing red tape
  • Managing the environment
  • Revitalising the regions
  • Strengthening families and communities
  • Western Australia in Asia
