The OECD series Value for Money in Government reports on new reforms and reform trends in public administration, as part of the OECD multi-annual, cross-country study of the same name. The study looks in particular at reforms which aim for better quality of services at lower costs – that is, value for money. The series includes horizontal studies that look at reforms on a thematic basis across countries, as well as country assessments of individual countries. The horizontal studies are descriptive and provide information on the reforms that have occurred in member countries. The focus is on features of the reforms, and on experience with their implementation, which are relevant from an international perspective so that countries can learn from each other. The country studies assess government institutions and practices and, drawing upon reforms that have delivered good results in other countries, make recommendations to the country.

This report presents the results of the assessment of the organisation of the central government of Australia. The study looks at reforms that are aimed at improving the quality of services (more value) and efficiency (less money) in central government. Starting with facts and quantitative benchmarks on the Australian central government, the study reviews recent reforms in Australia, and makes recommendations in ten selected areas. The study concludes with a survey of the effects on the quality of services and the potential savings.
