EP#61: Future of the APS

Australia, like all countries, has experienced rapid change over the last few years which has altered people’s expectations of government and the way they access government services. A new government at the federal level also means change – a need to adapt to new priorities, connect with stakeholders and build new relationships.

In this latest episode, we’re joined by Australian Public Service (APS) veterans, Andrew Podger AO, Professor of Public Policy at the Australian National University, and Carmel McGregor PSM, Adjunct Professor at the University of Canberra.

Discussed in this episode:

  • What the APS can expect from the new government.
  • A new reform agenda.
  • Future directions for the public service.
  • Building more effective relationships between public service and academia.
