The annual Frederick O’Reilly Hayes Prize recognizes individual City employees or teams of employees who develop or enhance innovative programs, processes, or technologies that significantly improve service delivery to the public. In partnership with the Department of Citywide Administrative Services (DCAS), this year the prize will award up to $7,500 to an individual or up $15,000 for a team award, all paid for with private contributions. The Prize is named in honor of a former City Budget Director who devoted his career to making government work better for the people it serves.
