His Highness Shaikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Vice-President and Prime Minister of the UAE and Ruler of Dubai, will attend the award-giving ceremony for the third cycle of Emirates Government Service Excellence Award on Wednesday.

The event will be organised at the Emirates Palace by the Shaikh Khalifa Government Excellence Programme (SKGEP). Shaikh Mohammed will honour the winners in the presence of a group of Crown Princes, Shaikhs, ministers, dignitaries and more than 1,000 senior officials representing the federal and local governments.

The Emirates Excellence Award is part of the Shaikh Khalifa Government Excellence Programme which was approved by Shaikh Mohammed in a drive to make the UAE government one of the best governments in the world.

The award’s objectives fit well into Shaikh Mohammed’s vision for upgrading government work, improving performance, coordinating efforts, encouraging continued education, transferring and sharing expertise, working as one team working and promoting the culture of excellence so all government entities gear through one compass towards UAE Vision 2021.

The first of its kind at the federal level, the programme was designed to provide federal public institutions a road map to help them improve their performance, to support a healthy economy and to unify their management practice in a balanced holistic model.

The award is the highest ranking corporate excellence decoration and has five categories: the main category, which includes awards for entities, zones and departments based on the total number of excellence points; the sub-categories, which include awards for the entity, zone or department that achieves the highest results according to each excellence criterion; the Best Practice category, which covers creativity, performance management, information management, electronic excellence and government.
