State of the NSW Public Sector Report 2013

Welcome to the second annual State of the NSW Public Sector Report. Last year’s inaugural report established a baseline against which to assess, over time, the performance of the NSW public sector in a number of key areas.

This year’s report builds on that work, concentrating on the very significant reform agenda initiated during the reporting period. These are fundamental reforms to the employment arrangements that underpin the public sector workforce and the tools used for managing the workforce.
