ANZSOG Strategy 2015 - 19 

'Citizens expectations are changing: they are expecting better and faster responses from government. Citizens have access to information in quantities and speeds unseen in previous generations: social media and the globalisation of information has created a more informed (and demanding) society. A shorter, sharper media cycle contributes to the way citizens view governments and the way governments respond. Delivering ‘public value’ must occur in this context.'

Indigenous values for the APS

This paper explores how the APS could change the Public Service Act 1999 to incorporate First Peoples knowledge and approaches into the core values and ways of working of the federal public service. It recommends working with Indigenous communities to create a formal acknowledgement of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people in the Act and to better recognise Indigenous approaches to governance through changes to the APS values.
