Have your say

Welcome to have your say. This is where you can contribute to/take part in APS Reform open consultations.

APS reform is under way, and some exciting changes are happening that will help build a stronger Australian Public Service (APS) that embodies integrity in everything it does, puts people and business at the centre of policy and services, is a model employer, and has the capability to do its job well.

It's important that you have your say in these changes.
