Celebrating the winners of the 2014 Civil Service Awards

Thursday, 20 November 2014, 10:35.

The finalists for the Civil Service Digital award were DVLA’s View Driving Record project, providing motorists with a full online view of their driving licence information; Cabinet Office’s Individual Electoral Registration programme – the biggest change to the democratic process since universal suffrage and Department of Health’s transformational digital coverage of the G8 Dementia Summit which encouraged a bold commitment to identify a cure by 2025. This was an impressive and worthy shortlist.

The winners, the DVLA team, were announced by Richard Heaton, Permanent Secretary at the Cabinet Office and the team were presented with their award by TSO CEO Marco Pierleoni. 

The View Driver Licence project provides motorists with a full online view of their driving licence information, including what vehicles they can drive and any penalty points or disqualifications. Motor insurers will also be able to access the data on penalty points to give them more accurate information for insurance applications, which will cut honest drivers’ premiums. The service is expected to process and manage 45 million driver records, with 4 million drivers and 500 million insurance hits estimated per year, along with capacity to process up to 300 insurance industry transactions every second.

TSO was proud to sponsor the Digital award - digital technology has the potential to transform public services, improving service delivery and interactions with the public.

16 Civil Service Awards were presented during the course of the evening. You can see the full results on the Civil Service blog.

During the award ceremony David Cameron, Nick Clegg, Francis Maude and Sir Jeremy Heywood paid tribute to the hard work being carried out by the civil service.

We at TSO would like to congratulate all the winners, the shortlisted finalists and all the teams around the civil service that are doing great work.
