This ANZSOG research paper, prepared for the Australian Public Service Review Panel reviews the APS relationships with Ministers and their offices. One of the key functions of the APS is how it interacts with ministers, and the nature and quality of that relationship affects the quality of public administration. This paper explores those interactions, how they have changed over time, and explores a new vision of the APS which is open to the community and synthesises and communicates information drawn from all stakeholders to Ministers and government.
