The Tasmanian Government is conducting a review (the Review) of the Tasmanian State Service (TSS) to consider whether the governing framework of the State Service is fit-for-purpose for Tasmania today and into the future. It will identify structural, legislative and administrative improvements that will transform current structures, services and practices to deliver a more efficient and effective public service.
Dr Ian Watt AC has been appointed as the Independent Reviewer. Dr Watt has worked at the highest levels of the public service in Australia, including as Secretary of the Department of Prime Minister and Cabinet and the head of the Australian Public Service.
Dr Watt is consulting widely and there will be a number of opportunities to engage and provide feedback throughout the Review.
