Public Management Reform Agenda
Welcome to the Public Management Reform Agenda (PMRA) website. This website provides information about a comprehensive reform process to improve the quality of financial and performance management across the Commonwealth public sector.
The multi-year reform process began with the Commonwealth Financial Accountability Review (the Review), which involved extensive consultation with stakeholders through the release of a Discussion Paper in March 2012 and a Position Paper in November 2012.
The culmination of the Review was the enactment of the Public Governance, Performance and Accountability Act 2013 (PGPA Act) to bring the fundamental elements of the Commonwealth financial framework together under one piece of legislation on 1 July 2014. Before the PGPA Act comes into effect, the Department of Finance (Finance) will work with relevant stakeholders to make consequential amendments to other legislation, and develop rules and guidance material to support the PGPA Act.
In addition to information about the ongoing reforms, this website will also identify ways stakeholders can engage in consultations. I strongly encourage your participation and look forward to continuing to work with you to implement the financial management reforms.
