2017 Machinery of Government changes

The Premier has announced the first round of Machinery of Government (MOG) changes in the public sector, as outlined in the Government’s election commitments creating a number of new amalgamated departments. These wide reaching changes will affect a range of public sector agencies.

These structural changes are aimed at creating collaborative departments focused on whole-of-government objectives and delivering services in a more efficient and effective way.

The Commission is responsible for giving effect to these changes in line with s. 21A, s. 22B and s. 35 of the Public Sector Management Act 1994. New departments will begin to come into effect on 1 July 2017.

The Commission has established a MOG team comprising senior officers who will work exclusively on the changes. Members of the team have been assigned to each new agency department. Additionally, the Commission has prepared a number of tools to support agencies through this change process:
