Public Management Reform Agenda
The Public Governance, Performance and Accountability Act 2013 (PGPA Act) represents a cultural change in Commonwealth resource management, from a compliance approach to a principles-based framework. Commonwealth entities are encouraged to think differently about how they manage resources. The Act is based on the following principles:
- government should operate as a coherent whole
- a uniform set of duties should apply to all resources handled by Commonwealth entities
- performance of the public sector is more than financial
- engaging with risk is a necessary step in improving performance.
The PGPA Act will be supported by rules and guidance to assist Commonwealth entities to manage public resources.
