Public Sector Excellence Awarded in a Stellar Evening


The best examples of public sector excellence in going digital were recently recognised in a gala evening. Over 250 guests attended the Public Sector Paperless Awards on the 6th July 2017 in Kensington.

Mark Blanchard, Director at GovNewsDirect, opened the evening highlighting the importance of recognising the achievements of digital transformation and read a statement by the Right Honourable Caroline Nokes, MP, Parliamentary Under Secretary of State for the Cabinet Office and Lead Minister for GDS.

Blanchard says, “The inaugural Public Sector Paperless Awards has been a resounding success. We were impressed by the high calibre of the entries received. The judges, chosen to represent a range of organisations and from various areas across the public sector, had a real challenge to choose a winner from the shortlisted projects. All the finalists were able to demonstrate a quantifiable difference made to people’s lives in addition to efficiency savings across the board. GovNewsDirect were thrilled to have been able to bring these examples of excellence together to celebrate their achievements.

“The judges chose the winners based on a comprehensive scoring system that included a variety of areas such as demonstrable examples of improvement in customer service, value for money and cost savings, innovation and a clear strategy. Each of our winners provided real evidence of improving the lives of people they served. We are looking ahead to the Public Sector Paperless Awards 2018, with nominations opening on the 1st September 2018.”
