Even better public sector for Queensland

Action Plan 2024 and 2025

Bringing the sector’s five-year Even better public sector for Queensland strategy 2024–2028 (strategy) to life relies on clear and deliberate actions over time.

The strategy’s six goals are ambitious. Making progress will require a staged approach to achieve sustainable change.

This first action plan (plan) is aligned to the strategy’s focus areas of work, workforce and workplace and is focused on the work to be done from February 2024 to December 2025.

This plan builds on the sector’s strengths to deliver the work required to move confidently towards the strategy’s six goals. As these initial actions are delivered over the first two years, we will be better positioned as a sector to achieve the outcomes outlined in the strategy.

The successes and learnings identified through delivering these actions will inform future action plans. Over the course of five years, we will look at the different types of work required to make progress towards achieving the strategy’s six goals.

This includes examining systems and processes, equipping and empowering sector leaders, and attracting and developing highly capable current and future public servants.

The Public Sector Commission’s role

The Public Sector Commission (PSC) will continue to work across the sector and will be the lead agency for the actions in the first plan. The PSC will also work with partner departments equipped with the knowledge, expertise and skills needed to deliver specific actions.

The actions outlined in this plan complement a range of critical work already underway within the sector. This includes the PSC’s broader work as part of implementing the Public Sector Act 2022 and building a responsive, culturally capable, fair and high-performing and apolitical public sector.
