The Analysis Function has launched the fourth Analysis in Government Awards (AiG Awards), which recognise and celebrate the excellent analytical work being done across government.
The AiG team are welcoming nominations which reflect the range of work completed by analysts across government over the last year (1 October 2022 – 30 September 2023).
There are six separate awards:
- Innovative Methods
- Professor Sir Ian Diamond Rising Star Award
The AiG Awards recognise excellence from members of the Analysis Function, including colleagues who work within government departments, government agencies and arm’s-length bodies. The contribution of colleagues from outside of the Analysis Function can be recognised through the Collaboration Award.
Tips for writing a great nomination
Competition is fierce and the AiG team would like to see as many great entries as possible, so they have put together tips for writing an outstanding nomination:
- Remember that the judges may not be familiar with your topic, so use plain English by writing in short, clear sentences and using everyday words without acronyms and unnecessary jargon
- Use the STAR method by explaining the Situation, Task, Action and Result of your work
- In particular, judges want you to showcase the impact of the nominee’s work
- Be clear on the criteria and address each point of the award you are nominating for – you can find these on the nomination form
- Include any appropriate links to your work to demonstrate any outputs you may want to showcase
- Keep within the word count of 1,000 words
Deadline: Nominations close at 23:55 on Friday 27 October.
Further information on the judging criteria for each of the awards can be found on the Analysis Function Website.
