The Secretary for the Civil Service's Commendation Award Scheme
This is another tier of award between the CE's Honours and Awards System and the Commendation Letter Scheme. Through the award, the Secretary for the Civil Service will give recognition to selected civil servants for consistently outstanding performance.
Commendation Letter Scheme
The scheme aims to commend officers who have made a substantial contribution towards enhancing the efficiency or the image of their departments; or have performed an exceptionally meritorious act warranting special recognition. Civil servants may also be commended for their consistently outstanding service under the Scheme. Commendation letters are issued by the Head of Bureau/Department on the recommendation of a bureau/departmental Commendation Committee.
