Independent Review of the Australian Public Service

The Prime Minister has commissioned a major review of the Australian Public Service (APS) to ensure it is best placed to serve Australian governments and the Australian people into the future.

The APS has a long and proud history of advising successive Australian governments and serving the Australian people well. However, a range of global, technological and public policy developments are transforming our economy and society. The time is right to examine the capability, culture and operating model of the APS, to ensure the APS is ready to capitalise on these opportunities, improve citizens’ experience of government, and deliver better services.

The review will be led by an independent panel of six individuals with public and private sector experience, both in Australia and internationally. They will report to the Government in the first half of 2019.
