Recently (June 10), the Minister of Transport, Lawrence Scott and the Head of the Public Service, Dr. Derrick Binns recognized the Ministry of Transport’s Stacey Evans as the May recipient of the Public Service Excellence Award (PSEA).
The PSEA is a programme that aims to encourage outstanding achievement and recognize Public Officers who are demonstrating admirable service delivery. Each month an individual or team is selected for their outstanding public service accomplished in the last 60 days.
Stacey is being recognized for her work with the Transport Planning Team. In her role as Transportation Coordinator in the Ministry, her primary duties include liaising with the Cruise Ship industry to manage scheduled calls.
Ms. Evans has demonstrated exceptional commitment to her role while understanding the importance of visiting Cruise Ships to Bermuda’s economy and tourism industry. In preparation for the return of Cruise Ships for the 2022 Spring/Summer season, she has “gone above and beyond the call of duty,” to ensure the smooth disembarkation of all scheduled Cruise Ship calls and passengers.
Ms. Evans provides ongoing support for local and overseas stakeholders in processing cruise ship passengers’ travel authorization applications and finding solutions in the face of challenges or crises. She assisted the Ministry of Health with their COVID-19 Health protocols and creating a workable on-board solution for processing TAs at the cruise ship ports.
She also coordinated border control stakeholder meetings with 76 cruise ship stakeholders to ensure that all COVID-related requirements were met. She consistently provides a high level of support to all stakeholders, including Senior Executives of the Cruise Lines, Port Agents (both local and overseas), overseas COVID Testing Facilities.
Ms. Evans has conducted research, attending various overseas ports and testing facilities to learn about their processes to review how Bermuda can improve its framework. Her findings have been of great assistance to all parties, and her efforts were instrumental to the successful homeporting of Viking Cruise Lines in Bermuda.
Recently, the Minister of Transport, the Hon. Lawrence Scott, JP, MP, said, “COVID-19 has presented numerous challenges to the transport industry, and I am incredibly thankful to Ms. Evans for upholding Bermuda’s reputation as a desirable vacation destination. I salute her efforts to coordinate the successful return of Cruise Ship calls to Bermuda for the 2022 Spring/Summer season and wish her continued success in her projects.”
Head of the Public Service, Dr. Derrick Binns, said, “On behalf of the Public Service Executive, thank you, Ms. Evans, for your ongoing commitment to Bermuda. The exceptional service you continue to provide to local and international stakeholders is truly exemplary of Bermudians’ renowned hospitality. Congratulations on your well-deserved award, and may you continue to raise the bar!”
