The Honourable Joe Francis MLA Minister for Emergency Services; Corrective Services; Small Business; Veterans kicked off the celebrations for the Institute of Public Administration Australia WA (IPAA WA) 29th Annual W.S. Lonnie Awards for excellence and accountability in annual reporting, at the Hyatt Regency Perth on Friday 28th March 2014.
The Awards attracted CEOs, Directors General and Commissioners from across State government agencies and statutory bodies, all hoping to take out the prestigious W.S. Lonnie Memorial Trophy – awarded to the best annual report for the year.
The primary vehicle for accountability in the Public Sector has been and always will be the way agencies report their performance. The W.S. Lonnie Awards recognise the importance of Annual Reports being accountable and transparent in a succinct and independent way. All State agencies are eligible and are automatically considered as part of the judging process.
This year, the Institute is proud to announce that 2014 marks the 29th Anniversary of this long-standing and prestigious event. These awards below are judged in 2013 and presented in 2014.
