The Astana Civil Service Hub (ACSH) and the Chairman of the ACSH Steering Committee Mr. Alikhan Baimenov have received a special International Award of the American Society for Public Administration (ASPA) for a huge contribution to both the practice and scholarship of public administration.

As it mentioned in the letter of congratulations from ASPA Executive Director Mr. William Shields, this award recognizes the significant contribution of the ACSH and its Chairman to support the efforts of governments in creation and strengthening effective civil service systems in participating countries and beyond, as well as to the development of international cooperation in the field of public administration.

ASPA is the oldest and internationally recognized professional association in the field of public administration, which includes more than 10,000 professionals from around the world. Since 1939, the organisation has acted as the critical bridge between public administration academics and practitioners, and promotes the development of science, teaching and practice of public and non-profit administration.

The letter also noted that the award ceremony will be held on the ground of the ASPA Annual Conference in March 2022. Currently, the ACSH comprises 42 participating countries and cooperates with 70 international public administration organisations.
