On 4 May 2017, the Western Australian government announced a wide-ranging review into the functions, operations and culture of the Western Australian public sector. The independent review aims to drive lasting reform of service delivery, accountability and efficiency.
Former New Zealand State Services Commissioner, Iain Rennie CNZM, is chairing the review, supported by former Indigenous Land Corporation Chief Executive Officer, Michael Dillon, and former UWA Senior Deputy Vice Chancellor, Professor Margaret Seares AO.
Through consultation with government and non-government stakeholders, the panel will make recommendations to the state government on ways to achieve:
- a more efficient, collaborative, adaptable and outcomes-based public sector that is aligned to the State Government's strategic priorities
- the delivery of different, better and more affordable services.
The panel produced this interim report for the state government and will present a final report in October 2017.
