The Davis Productivity Awards program is a public-private partnership co-sponsored by the Prudential Financial company, Florida TaxWatch, the Florida Council of 100, and the State of Florida. The awards recognize public employees who have saved taxpayer dollars, measurably improved service, or increased process efficiency.
The Florida Department of Health submitted 48 nominations and all 48 were winners. In all state agencies, there were 553 nominations representing a total of $443 million in cost savings and increased efficiencies.
The Davis Awards are a good example of public sector efforts to recognize and reward process and cost improvements that will improve our healthcare system on a local level.
