This briefing paper has been developed as a contribution from IPAA to the Independent Review of the Australian Public Service (APS) led by Davis Thodey AO. It aims to help bridge a significant gap in the existing evidence base on APS reform – the absence of informed analysis on: 1) criteria for judging the quality of a review drawing on historical experience; 2) understanding of past reviews that have made a difference; 3) identification of the lessons that can be drawn from past review experiences for the present review; and 4), expert insights into the key themes requiring focused consideration in the 2018–19 APS Review with the objective of building an APS for the future.
