Saif Bin Zayed Launches the Smart Excellence Program for the Minister of Interior’s Excellence Award

Honors winners during the third edition

Abu Dhabi, United Arab Emirates - Tuesday, June 16th 2015 [ME NewsWire]

Lt. General HH Sheikh Saif bin Zayed Al Nahyan, Deputy Prime Minister and Minister of Interior has confirmed that thanks to the support and attention paid by the leadership of the country, excellence has become a defining feature of the UAE - for both the people and the government of the nation. His Highness commended the leadership of the country for tirelessly following-up with every endeavor that contributes to elevating the union’s banner. Such efforts have instilled hope and vigor within the hearts of the sons and daughters of the nation, and have motived them to reach the highest levels by furthering the achievements gained in progress, prosperity and stability.

“The nation’s leadership, led by His Highness Sheikh Khalifa bin Zayed Al Nahyan, President of the UAE – may God protect him– is keen for the UAE to remain as a role model of modernity and development.  Our leadership unceasingly supports the march of excellence, which is nothing short of essential in today’s contemporary world.”

This came in a statement by His Highness Sheikh Saif in the wake of the honoring ceremony for the winners of the third edition of the Minister of Interior’s Excellence Awards. During the ceremony, which was held on Tuesday at the Police Officers Club in Abu Dhabi, His Highness launched the Smart Development Program for the award. “Today, the UAE police face a significant challenge as they prove that police work is truly synonymous with culture, innovation, sophistication and excellence” His Highness said; as he reiterated his assertion that police institutions are the most effective after gaining the trust of the people and the satisfaction of the customers.

His Highness Sheikh Saif hailed the distinguished recipients of the award and the participating individuals, teams, and institutions for the efforts exerted to win, to take part in the process, or in some cases, do both.   

“Today we celebrate the winners of the Minister of Interior’s Excellence Awards,” said HE Lt. General Dhahi Khalfan Tamim, Deputy Chairman of the Dubai Police and General Security. “On this cherished occasion, I would like to invite everyone to reflect on the aspects of the award and its objectives. I call upon you to understand just how comprehensive this award is in terms of advancing the march of creativity.” He continued by highlighting how the award requires integrated performance across three categories, “which contribute to the sustainable institutional development driven by quality and excellence in performance – a prevailing factor of positive change and development that has been cultivated by the Ministry.” His Excellency pointed out how the Minister of Interior’s Excellence Award complements the Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Government Excellence Award in the endeavors made to elevate the levels of service, and to develop the standards of comprehensive quality and performance across all sectors of the Ministry of Interior.

The Deputy Chairman of the Dubai Police and General Security explained that the Minister of Interior’s Excellence Award embodies the strategy of the Ministry, and the aspirations of His Highness, the Deputy Prime Minister and Minister of Interior. His Excellency said that both notions aim to: motivate the employees of the public and private sectors to pursue excellence and innovation; serve to develop a sense of positivity within the public; encourage competition for the Mohammed bin Rashid Government Excellence Award; and promote cooperation between police institutions and the various segments of society.

Lt. General Dhahi Khalfan expressed his utmost gratitude to the personnel of the Ministry and to the nation’s police leadership in recognition for their active participation in the categories of the award. He additionally praised the role of the neutral evaluation committees and their efforts that helped the award achieve its target objectives.

Major General Dr. Nasser Lakhrebani Al Nuaimi, Secretary General of the Office of HH Deputy Prime Minister and Minister of Interior, Chairman of the Minister of Interior’s Excellence Award Committee, said: “The success stems from the directives to achieve significant leaps in the process of strategic development from Lt. General HH Sheikh Saif bin Zayed Al Nahyan, Deputy Prime Minister and Minister of Interior, the founder and patron of the march of excellence within the Ministry and its commands.”

Maj. Gen. Al Nauimi stressed the keenness and attention paid by the higher police leadership to the importance of excellence and superiority, and to motivate the staff to maintain the achievements realized in the fields of security and safety. He pointed out that the MoI relentlessly strives to achieve its aspirations through a strategic vision that emphasizes efficient work so that the UAE will become one of the world’s safest and most secure countries.

He said that the award has further spurred the implementation of international concepts and standards of police excellence, and has created a spirit of competition between the various sectors, leadership, and personnel of the Ministry. “The award has allowed the personnel of the Ministry to demonstrate their skills and achievements in the service and development of police work. This has been exemplified through winning the nationwide Distinguished Internal Performance Improvement Team award, a category of the 2014 Mohammed bin Rashid Government Excellence Award,” he said.

Major General Dr. Abdul Quddous Abdul Razzaq Al Obaidly, General Coordinator of the Minister of Interior’s Excellence Award, said that the launch of the award in 2011 provided a framework and approach to governance and motivation. He pointed out that the vision of the higher leadership and its continuous support has enabled the Ministry to sit in the throne of excellence not only in the UAE, but also worldwide, in international competitiveness reports and receiving awards.

He added, “We are moving forward towards the fourth generation of government excellence, which was launched by the government as a part of the 2016 Sheikh Khalifa Government Excellence Program.”

Recalling the slogan of excellence, ‘Everyone is a Winner’, which was launched during the first edition of the award, Maj. General Al Obaidly said that it “has been firmly and realistically reflected in the third edition of the Minister of Interior’s Excellence Award.” He noted the increased number of participants for this edition of the award, with 450 participants for the 65 categories of the award. “In a bid to encourage and enable participation, the general secretariat of the award decided to increase the number of participants by enhancing the incentives in the main categories of the award. These categories included: department of excellence, region of excellence, and the Distinguished Security Area Award in accordance with the strategic value based on fairness, transparency and excellence.”

Lt. Colonel Dr. Ali Bin Daen Al Ghafli, Head of the Organizational Excellence Department at the Directorate General of Strategy and Performance Development at the General Secretariat of the Office of H.H. Deputy Prime Minister and Minister of Interior, gave a speech. He said, “Our celebration today comes as part of our long chain of successes, and we will continue our endeavors on every level at the Ministry of Interior. The Ministry has taken it upon themselves to place excellence and success as the only option; they have encouraged teamwork, dedication, and the belief in the sanctity of this ideal to be carried within the future vision of the police leadership. They have established the culture of excellence as an actual practice in institutional and operational performance; which is exemplified in the decision to launch the 2011 Minister of Interior’s Excellence Award in a bid to set the comprehensive framework for institutional excellence and competition between the various sectors, commands, teams and personnel within the MoI. The goal is to be first place in terms of international security excellence systems.”

He said that the award has further spurred the implementation of international concepts and standards of police excellence, and has created a spirit of competition between the various sectors, leadership, and personnel of the Ministry. He reiterated that the award allowed the personnel of the Ministry to demonstrate their skills and achievements in the service and development of police work; which has been exemplified through winning the nationwide Distinguished Internal Performance Improvement Team award, a category of the 2014 Mohammed bin Rashid Government Excellence Award, and the intellectual property certification from the UAE Ministry of Economy.

He pointed to the results and achievements realized by implementing the system of the Minister of Interior’s Award, which are as follows:

When compared to the previous edition of the award, the institutional performance in various sectors and commands improved by 19 percent, and the percentage of participation in the various categories of the award improved by 12 percent. The award provided an abundant environment to train and sharpen the skills of excellence evaluators, as the increase in the number of the ministry’s participating evaluators was 69 percent when compared to the previous edition. The award also helped to prepare the Ministry for their participation in local and international excellence awards, which is embodied through significant increases in numbers of awards received. In 2012, the Ministry witnessed an increase of 50 percent more Mohammed bin Rashid Government Excellence Awards, and an increase of 72.2 percent in 2014, winning 16 of the 22 available awards.  The number of international awards won by the Ministry increased from five in 2013 to 15 in 2014.

He pointed out that the work team supervising the award at the Ministry develops the award after each edition in light of the latest developments on every level.  He said that a team of distinguished experts at the Ministry reviews and evaluates the categories, standards, and mechanisms of the award in accordance with the system of governmental excellence (fourth generation) and the UAE’s strategy of smart transformation.

The ceremony was attended by HE Lt. General Dhahi Khalfan Tamim, Deputy Chairman of the Dubai Police and General Security; Major General Dr. Nasser Lakhrebani Al Nuaimi, Secretary General of the Office of HH Deputy Prime Minister and Minister of Interior, Chairman of the Minister of Interior’s Excellence Award Committee; Major General Khalifa Hareb Al Khaili, Acting Assistant Undersecretary of the Ministry of Interior for Naturalization, Residency and Ports Affairs; UAE police chiefs, general directors at the MoI, as well as a number of senior police officers.
