THE Defence Science and Technology Laboratory (Dstl) has won the 2012 building public trust award for excellence in reporting in the public sector.
Jointly awarded by PricewaterhouseCoopers (PwC) and the National Audit Office (NAO), the honour recognises the content and quality of Dstl’s corporate plan 2012-17 and annual report 2012.
Dstl was selected as the winner following a review of the largest public sector organisations.
Finance director Mark Alexander accepted the award from Amyas Morse, comptroller and auditor general of the NAO, at the presentation ceremony hosted at The Dorchester Hotel in London.
He was accompanied by non-executive director Gerard Connell, head of governance Russell Smith and corporate secretary Joanna Wright.
Speaking after the event Mark said: “I’m delighted to accept this award for excellence in reporting from PricewaterhouseCoopers and the National Audit Office on behalf of Dstl – and in particular on behalf of our corporate reporting team who I think have done a tremendous job in improving the quality of our published reports, making them concise, informative and, above all else, transparent.
“It’s been a lot of work and they are worthy winners of this award.”
