Public submissions open for the Independent Review of the Australian Public Service

The Panel for the Independent Review of the Australian Public Service has today called for public submissions.

Minister Assisting the Prime Minister for the Public Service, the Hon Kelly O'Dwyer, said public consultations were an opportunity for people to have their say about the future of the Australian Public Service.

"It is important that our public sector is fit-for-purpose in the years ahead," Minister O'Dwyer said.

"Public consultations are an excellent opportunity for people to share their vision for the future of the APS. It is a chance to let the Panel know what works well, and what needs to change."

The Panel is seeking views on all areas raised in the Terms of Reference, as it begins its examination of the capability, culture and operating model of the Australian Public Service.

"Anyone can make a submission. Whether a public servant, business owner or member of the public, this is a chance to have your say on how our public service can best serve all Australians into the future," Minister O'Dwyer said.

The closing date for submissions is 11.59pm AEST Friday 13 July 2018.

Make a submission and read the Terms of Reference at the Independent Reviews' website.
