PM releases APS Review, pledges reform

Prime Minister Scott Morrison has released the Independent Review of the Australian Public Service and says the federal government will provide $15.1 million to embark on a rapid planning phase for reform.

The Review, headed by David Thodey, is the largest of its kind in 40 years.

The release of the 384-page report, which contains 40 recommendations, comes after the government announced a sweeping restructure of government departments last week.

The APS Secretaries Board and the Public Service Commissioner will launch a rapid planning phase for reform over the next few months, he said.
