The National Awards Committee has opened nominations for the National Award for Public Service and published the award criteria in the Government Gazette.
The National Award for Public Service was introduced in 2021 and is the most prestigious award conferred by the president on individuals who have served the nation for over 35 years and have been observed as diligent and steadfast workers. Any individual who has worked in a government office, agency, or subsidiary where the government holds the most shares for over 35 years is eligible for the award. Nominations can be filed by organisations or by individual nominees.
The National Awards Committee will consider the quality of the nominees’ work and their contributions to the development of their respective fields. The award will also recognise the individual achievements of the nominees. The committee said the nominations will be accepted through the designated portal for the award at the President’s Office website until April 30.
