Departmental employees are able to be nominated for awards within the Order of Australia. In the Australian honours system, appointments to the Order of Australia are the highest recognition for outstanding achievement and service.
Nominations can be submitted at any time during the year online through the Order of Australia website.
Information on the Australian Honours System can also be found on the Queensland Government website.
The Public Service Medal recognises sustained, extraordinary service by employees of federal, state, territory and local governments. The criterion for outstanding service can be found on the Federal Government's Awards website.
Nominating employees are also asked to also outline how their service demonstrates the Queensland Government's Public Service values.
Nominations for the Public Service Medal are able to be submitted twice a year and must be provided to the Department's Diversity, Culture and Engagement Team by mid-January and mid-July.
The nomination form can be obtained from the Public Service Medal website.
