Back in July, our project to become the UK’s domestic safeguards regulator was named the public sector’s Project of the Year at the National Project Awards.
Like so many events, the original awards ceremony was unable to go ahead because of the pandemic, and so we accepted the award virtually.
However, last Friday, the Project Management Institute held a celebratory dinner in lieu of a gala event, a chance for Mahtab Khan and Lynne Mackay to receive the trophy in person.
Mahtab, Superintending Inspector, and our Safeguards Delivery Lead, said: “I was delighted to be able to pick up the award in person. I am very proud of the project team and the hard work we all put in, and it was great to be able to celebrate that success in person.”
Lynne, Head of Safeguards Policy, said: “The safeguards team is fully operational, and busy with the day-to-day work, so it was a wonderful chance to reflect on how we got here, the commitment and passion shown by the team and colleagues across ONR and beyond, who gave vital help and support to the project.”
