The award for the best Agency with less than 500 staff was won by the Veterinary Medicines Directorate.
In its tenth and final year, the award, established to encourage agencies to produce well-presented and informative annual reports, drew a record number of entries.
Making the presentations at the Queen Elizabeth II Conference Centre in London today, Brian Bender, Permanent Secretary of the Cabinet Office, compared the quality of the entries with those of FTSE 100 companies: 'The best Agency reports often have to explain complex details to a range of different audiences such as Ministers, users of public services, staff, MPs and the taxpayer in a clear and meaningful way but without sacrificing detail.
'Agencies are very aware of the value of good design to effective communication and the standard of presentation of the Agency reports this year rivals that of the best in private industry.'
