Labor Announces Senior Executive Service Changes
One week after announcing their public sector policy — WA Labor leader Mark McGowan, announced a number of measures that aim to drive cultural change in the public sector in a speech to the Committee for Economic Development. The measures are outlined within the policy document ‘Delivering Real Outcomes for the Community’.
Labor Cabinet to develop up to 20 Key Performance Indicators to measure performance of Government;
Heads of Departments to be measured against Key Performance Indicators with 20% of their salaries linked to successful outcomes;
A 20% reduction in the number of Senior Executive Service positions;
Service Priority Review to reduce the number of agencies by 20%.
We are aware that the budget position of the Government is parlous, and we understand that any future Government has a responsibility to redress the debt situation West Australians have been put in.
CPSU/CSA members are our priority and members have been clear with us that their priority is the delivery of valued services to West Australians.
The CPSU/CSA will seek to engage on behalf of members with the Service Priority Review to ensure that our members concerns, ideas and aspirations are met.
