Commonwealth member governments have been taking part in a unique mapping exercise, identifying the actual changes which have been made in some key areas of public service management. The Public Country Profile Series sets out the results of the mapping exercise, country by country, to provide an unprecedented insight into the real managerial and structural changes under way in the public service.

In providing some firm ground on which those public servants, both elected and appointed, who are faced with the challenge of public service reform can stand while assessing the options available, the Public Country Profile Series marks a milestone in the debate concerning the management of the public service.



Making Government More Efficient

Ministries/departments have been encouraged to employ modern business management tools to improve the management of their operations. In 1993, all ministries and departments were asked to develop five-year strategic plans outlining vision, core purpose, strategic objectives, strategies for achieving those objectives and the physical, human and financial resources required to achieve these objectives. These agencies were further asked to prepare yearly action plans which would inform their annual budgetary estimates.
