Sector Reform

The Public Service Commission has a developing responsibility for specific sector reform initiatives that are critical to achieving policy outcomes and a broader reform agenda.

Tasked with a lead role in the design and implementation of workforce management strategies, with current focus on the implementation of certain recommendations in the Commission of Audit Interim Report, this section will list a growing number of initiatives that have been deployed to the sector. 

These initiatives compose a broader remit of one or more of the Commission's Performance, Capability, Public Sector Values and Innovation & Services Groups.
