ASPA AWARDS

ASPA's extensive award program advances excellence in public administration in the simplest and most effective way.

It identifies and illuminates government that works and government employees who work well. Today, it is more important than ever that effective and efficient government be recognized, reinforced, and, whenever possible, imitated with the hope of providing better service to the public.


Likewise, ASPA's awards recognize researchers and professors who have made outstanding contributions to public administration literature and in the classroom.


The awards program provides a forum for the public sector's best and brightest to shine. With its vision of continuous improvement, ASPA structures its awards to provide guidance not only to the Society but to the entire public administration community on the many positive directions toward which it can strive.
