The ISSA Good Practice Awards 2017–2019
The identification and sharing of good practices helps social security organizations to deliver on their mandate to protect populations and to realize their commitment to good governance, service quality and operational efficiency.
The ISSA defines a good practice as any type of experience (e.g. an action, a measure, a process, a programme, a project, or a technology) implemented within a social security organization that implements innovative solutions, fosters the improvement of its administrative and operational capacities, and/or the efficient and effective delivery of programmes.
The ISSA Good Practice Award
The ISSA Good Practice Award recognizes good practices in the administration of social security carried out by ISSA member organizations, and provides a unique opportunity for institutions to present their significant administrative initiatives and innovative solutions to a global audience.
Since its launch in 2008, the Good Practice Award competitions have attracted close to 700 submissions and have showcased an impressive range of operational and administrative achievements by member organizations in all regions.
The Good Practice Awards are attributed on a regional basis over a three-year cycle and are announced at a ceremony at each ISSA Regional Social Security Forum.
The Award, and Certificates of Merit, are decided by an international Jury. The good practices received in each competition are translated and made available to other member organizations through the ISSA good practices in social security database.
Other good practice submissions
In addition to the regional Good Practice Awards competitions, good practices may be submitted on an on-going basis, through the work of the ISSA Technical Commissions, during the development of ISSA Guidelines, and during ISSA conferences, technical seminars and Academy workshops.
