The PPSP (Pan-African Public Service Award) constitutes a prestigious event for excellence in public services. It aims at rewarding public institutions in African countries, which made creative achievements to modernize civil service and promote its efficiency.

The award has been launched during the 53rd Session of the Governing Board of CAFRAD, and the 11th Forum on Modernization of Public Services and State Institutions, held in Marrakech in 2015.
