    The Government is establishing an independent review to ensure the APS is fit-for-purpose for the coming decades. The APS needs to be apolitical and professional, agile, innovative and efficient – driving both policy and implementation through coherent, collaborative, whole-of-government approaches. (Independent Review of the APS 2018) ‘A clear-eyed and objective look at the Australia Public Service is clearly needed, but we have real concerns that this review will be subservient to neoliberal orthodoxy and the bizarre and damaging policies … imposed in pursuit of that extreme ideology,’ said CPSU National Secretary, Nadine Flood.
