The European Ombudsman, Emily O’Reilly, launched the first Award for Good Administration in 2016. The award aims to recognise initiatives, projects, and other types of work by the EU’s administration that have a visible and direct positive impact on the lives of people in Europe and beyond. The primary aim of the Ombudsman is to ensure the EU’s administration performs to the highest possible standards and serves the public interest. Through their work, the Ombudsman and her staff regularly witness examples of the excellent work carried out by dedicated EU civil servants. The award is a way of bringing these examples to a wider audience both to spread good practice within the institutions and to help bridge the gap between citizens and the EU administration. Projects will be honoured in a ceremony in June 2019, when prizes will be awarded in a number of categories and for an overall winning project.
