Changing the way government works

Public Sector Reform logo

The Western Australian Government is undertaking a major reform to create a more efficient, collaborative and high-performing public sector that delivers better services to the community.

The public sector reform program is shaped by the findings of three independent reviews of the public sector and two Chief Executive Officer Working Group reports. This has resulted in strong foundations for reform consisting of a range of initiatives to build a better public sector.

The reform program is a long-term endeavour and is not just about implementing initiatives. The way we work is as important as what we are working on. This reform is about breaking down siloes and ensuring government agencies work together as one sector for the benefit of all Western Australians.
