Award for Public Sector Analysis and Research (NEW in 2021)
ABOUT THE AWARD
This award category is for the unsung heroes of the policy development process, who bring the data, analysis and thinking to “data-driven decision-making.” This is a team award for groups that have worked together to develop thoughtful, rigorous and useful policy research that has helped to provide insight and understanding of complex issues. (This is not an award for digital innovation, rather this award category is about the very human task of synthesizing all of this information and making sense of it.) Inspire and recognize your colleagues who work in this behind-the-scenes role of providing the best evidence available to support decision-making processes.
For public servant teams that have provided policy-relevant and rigorous analysis, research or evaluation.

Must be currently employed by the public service (e.g., federal, provincial, municipal government, or related agencies, boards, and commissions).

Open to a team comprised of any roles, regardless of level of responsibility or level within organization.
