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 2018. Consequently, there will be no award program in 2017.

News about the 2018 Premier’s Awards will be posted and distributed via the Premier’s Awards mailing list as it becomes available.
