Read the research, publications and examples provoking our thoughts as the review unfolds. Only the Priorities for Change reflect the panel’s views, but all offer important perspectives on public sector reform. We’ve collected them here to foster public discussion and debate.
To support the review, the panel commissioned research papers from leading academics and practitioners through the Australia and New Zealand School of Government (ANZSOG). These provide a rigorous and independent perspective on various aspects of public sector reform. The papers are published here with the aim of supporting and enriching public discussion and debate.
The topics of the papers reflect areas with a rich academic foundation, where the panel felt it was particularly important to hear different external perspectives.
The authors were supported by advice from expert reference panels comprised of prominent Australian and international academics and practitioners.
The papers represent the opinion of the authors. They do not represent official views of the APS review panel, its secretariat, individual expert reference panel members or ANZSOG.
A research report that assesses the current state of the APS’ relationship with Ministers and their offices.
In May 2018, the Australian Government commissioned us, as an independent panel, to review the APS to ensure it is fit-for-purpose for the coming decades. We were asked to set out an ambitious transformation program and to guide and drive future public sector reforms.
