The Honourable Peter Katsambanis MLC, Member for North Metropolitan Region kicked off the celebrations for the Institute of Public Administration Australia WA’s (IPAA WA) 31st Annual W.S. Lonnie Awards for excellence and accountability in annual reporting, at the Hyatt Regency Perth on Friday 1st of April 2016.
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.
