On 16 July Lindsay Tanner, Minister for Finance and Deregulation issued the Declaration of Open Government on behalf of the Australian Government. A fantastic job by many people with talent, foresight, courage and passion.
Absolutely fantastic and a breath of fresh air for public servants and the community. Now the hard work begins to create a public service that is in tune, engaged and innovative enough to deliver on the promise.
The fascinating challenge is going to be to create an environment that liberates the capabilities of all members of the Australian Public Service.
On a Canberra winters day it is apt to ay that there are rays of sunshine across the APS. They should be celebrated and used to illuminate the dark corners. The issue of organisational culture looms large.
Time to celebrate.
