The Citizen Panel
The Citizen Panel is a panel of citizens that act like a permanent Citizen Jury or sounding board that APS agencies can consult about their work.
What it might look like: After getting on the Panel’s agenda, a public servant would present their draft policy or programme to the panel of citizens, and get their feedback.
Why the contribution is important
Policy and programmes are improved by the views of public. The Citizen Panel would let public servants ‘pub test’ their work, or get expert advice, prior to finalising it – improving its quality and chances of success.

- Who would you have sit on the Panel – a wide range of demographics? Or specialists in a particular field?
- Would you pay people? Could it meet face to face and online? Would it meet quarterly? Ad hoc?
- Do you think people would really want to be part of this?
