The Ministry of Education, Singapore, won the prestigious ‘Government Organisation of the Year’ award at the annual FutureGov Awards 2012. The award recognises excellence in public administration at central, state or local government level. 

The ministry was celebrated for its Student Hub project, which migrates student information onto an open platform, and Analytical Hub project, which provides tools and techniques to help schools conduct statistical and quantitative analysis on student and school data.

The sixth annual FutureGov Awards ceremony was held on 19 October 2012, on the final day of FutureGov Summit in Chiang Mai, Thailand. These technology awards are given each year to government, education or healthcare organisations to recognise and celebrate the most successful modernisation programmes in the region.

This year, the awards covered 23 different categories, including categories such as e-government, information security, green government and digital inclusion. Our panel of judges, which included senior government officials along with experienced FutureGov managers, faced the difficult task of choosing the winners from a list of 93 exceptional finalists.

The final list of winners covered organisations from all around the Asia Pacific region – Singapore won five awards; Indonesia won four; Malaysia won three; Thailand, Sri Lanka, Australia and Hong Kong each won two; and Brunei, Bahrain and New Zealand each won one award.

The shortlisted nominees and award winners for each category are listed below. Our heartiest congratulations go out to the organisations that won or were shortlisted!
