Only three departments achieved a score of above 90%. Two of them were category winners. The Department of Trade & Industry scored 91.46%. Unfortunately it did not win a specific category, as another national Department (Provincial and Local Government) scored 93.9%. Special mention was, however, made of Trade & Industry’s performance. The Award has created healthy competition amongst departments to strive for excellence. Just how serious the Department of Trade & Industry is to win the Award in future years, is demonstrated by the following. The Department conducted an information session to make financial staff aware of the Award. As part of the proceedings, the Deputy Director-General, Ms Lindiwe Msengana-Ndlela, thanked staff for their performance and urged them to “go for excellence and be the best”.
