IRRV Performance Awards 2016
The 2016 Performance Awards Scheme looks to build upon the successful schemes of recent years.
There are nine categories; three ‘Team’ and six ‘Excellence’. The on-going changes in the profession are reflected in the choice of categories, whilst the criteria for each category has been updated, to ensure organisations are fully aware of what the Awards Panel is looking for.
- MOST IMPROVED
- CORPORATE FRAUD
- DEBT MANAGEMENT
- PARTNERSHIP WORKING
- SOCIAL INClUSION
- STAFF DEVELOPMENT
Entries are welcomed from organisations in both the public and private sector. All submissions need to be submitted electronically and must not exceed 5,000 words. The closing date for entries is Friday, 10th June 2016; this deadline will not be extended under any circumstances.
The short-listing process will take place later in June with the list of finalists, released on the 27th June 2016. A key part of the IRRV awards is the inspection process. Short- listed organisations will receive a visit from an Inspection Team, that has been drawn from distinguished experts in the fields of Revenues, Benefits and Valuation.
Inspections will be carried out throughout July, August and September, before the Awards Panel meets again to consider reports from the Inspection Teams. The Performance Awards Gala Dinner (when the winners in each category are announced and trophies presented) will be held during the IRRV Annual Conference on Wednesday, 18th October 2016.
In addition to having an overall winner in each category, the Awards Panel may again recognise other shortlisted organisations as being highly commended. Organisations that are highly commended will also be presented with a trohpy.
Organisations selected as a finalist will receive two complimentary places to attend the Annual Conference together with the Gala Dinner. An organisation short-listed
in more than category will receive a further complimentary place for each additional category. The virtual awards village, which includes a summary of each submission selected as a finalist, will go live on the IRRV web site in September.
