Centers were evaluated for the “Knight of Happiness” Award according to the criteria of the Emirates Government Service Excellence Program (EGSEP). The evaluation process, which took two months, included all the centers that are associated by agreements with the Department, whereby this takes place within the course of the Department’s efforts to achieve excellence in the provision of services through all centers with a view to ensure customer happiness, in addition to the unification of service standards and ensuring consistency amongst all centers.”
