Why Vote?

About the Vote

The “Public Award” is one of the main categories in the Hamdan Bin Mohammed Award for Smart Government.  Through this award, the public gets to vote for the year’s “Best Government Initiative” in which 4 initiatives were nominated this year.  You will be the judge by voting for your favorite initiative.  This is in line with our belief that the public is a key player in our government service improvement agenda. The entity that gets the largest number of public votes will receive the coveted Hamdan Bin Mohammed Programme for Smart Government Flag.

Hamdan Bin Mohammed Programme for Smart Government Flag

The HBMPASG Flag is given for a whole year to the Government of Dubai entity that gets the highest number of votes form the public and it is raised in front of the winning entity’s headquarters. In 2014, the Roads and Transport Authority received the flag, followed by Trakhees in 2015.  This year, the Department of Tourism and Commerce Marketing carries the flag and your vote today will determine which entity will receive the flag next!

Voting Eligibility

The public, nationals and residents, can vote for the Best Government Initiative for the year with the exception of Government of Dubai employees.
