IPAA ACT’s annual Awards programs recognise and encourage excellence in public administration. These Awards include the Prime Ministers’ Awards for Excellence in Public Sector Management, the Public Sector Innovation Awards and the IPAA Fellows Program.

IPAA ACT is currently working with the Department of Finance on a new Performance Reporting Award in 2017, which will recognise and encourage excellence in reporting against the federal government’s enhanced Commonwealth performance framework, a key objective of the Public Governance, Performance and Accountability Act 2013 (PGPA Act).
