Awards success for RPS project managers

30 Nov 2020

RPS people and projects have been honoured at this year’s Australian Institute of Project Management (AIPM) Awards.

The Project Management Achievement Awards (PMAAs) recognise, honour and promote outstanding achievements in program and project leadership.

All 2020 winners were announced in a special digital ceremony, with RPS taking out the coveted National Project of the Year Award for our work on the Australian Centre to Counter Child Exploitation (ACCCE), along with numerous state and territory awards.

“To have our work recognised by Australia’s top professional body for project management makes us extremely proud—all the more so when you see how these projects are making a difference to the community and helping our economy bounce-back in the wake of COVID-19," said RPS Executive Director for Project Management, Michael Owens

"The Australian Centre to Counter Child Exploitation (ACCCE) was an outstanding initiative that well deserves the title of best project in 2020. The Australian Federal Police and ACCCE team do incredible work to make the online world safer for kids, and RPS is so proud to have had the opportunity to make that facility a reality."

"Huge congratulations to everyone who competed in this year’s PMAAs and to all of our winners here at RPS," Mr Owens concluded.
