How can we get the public more involved in the public service’s work?
In principle, more public participation could make policy, programmes and service delivery far better. But it’s difficult to do in reality. Find out more - including why this is such a priority for the Australian Public Service (APS) and our Department.

To help address this, we’ve previously posted 15 ‘Concepts’ – ideas to get
more and better public participation.

Drawing on your feedback, we’ve iterated these Concepts down to 10 Components that will make up a Framework to improve public
participation in the APS.

We’ve posted them here to get your feedback.  We need your help to ensure they might really work, and to show that people actually think this kind of change is worthwhile.

So get stuck in! Add some comments, give them a star rating, and share them with your friends!
