[GOOD ADMINISTRATION AWARD] The European Ombudsman has launched a pilot initiative to recognise examples of citizen-friendly work and bring them to greater public attention. She also aims further to promote good administrative practice by showcasing this work to civil servants in every institution and agency. She is particularly keen to recognise initiatives, projects, and other types of work that have a visible and direct positive impact on the lives of EU citizens and other people, or groups of people, who may benefit from EU assistance.
