The Institute of Public Administration Australia WA (IPAA WA) has celebrated excellence in annual reporting at the institute’s 36th annual W.S. Lonnie Awards.
The Awards are open to Agencies across the Western Australian Public Sector, promoting excellence and improving standards of accountability.
They encourage clear communication of information to the Parliament and the community.
Secretary of the IPAA WA, Emma Forrest said several Agencies received more than one award.
“These included the Fremantle Port Authority (three awards); WorkCover WA (three awards); WA Country Health Service (two awards); the Department of Transport (two awards); and the Office of the Auditor General (two awards),” Ms Forrest said.
“The Office of the Auditor General’s successes included the ultimate award, the W.S. Lonnie Memorial Trophy and shield.”
She said the judges commended the Office of the Auditor General report for its ample discussion of both the meeting of set goals and an explanation as to why some areas were not met.
“They also acknowledged the report’s clear explanation of performance, KPIs and improvement options.
“The report’s professional feel, good use of graphics and at-a-glance information were also noted by the judges.”
Ms Forrest said the Chief Financial Officer of the Year Award went to Ravi Proheea, from the WA Museum.
“Ravi was praised for his significant contributions to the Museum’s financial management, accounting procedures, performance monitoring and risk management,” Ms Forrest said.
