Of course no innovation occurs without the great work of a range of people behind it. I would like to acknowledge all of the hard working staff at AFSA who have facilitated this positive outcome, including the responsiveness shown to our clients, who in turn continue to support our work through active and ongoing feedback.
My sincere thanks to the IPAA and the Public Sector Innovation Network for developing the Innovation Awards program, to the industry partners and also to the judges, who clearly faced some difficult choices in selecting the winner in each category.
Our congratulations go out to the Digital Transformation Category winner – the Australian Charities and Not-for-profit Commission with their Charities Portal submission.
There will always be opportunities to make improvements, to streamline processes and deliver better results—and this awards program has highlighted the quality and extent of innovation that is alive and well in the public service—and the many forms it can take.
