IGPA in collaboration with the Museum of Australian Democracy and Telstra have designed a series of nationally significant conversations on a wide array of topics from the future of Indigenous policy to new ways of delivering public services. We would like to invite you to our next event, ‘Finding Fiscal Space – Lessons for the Development of New Policy Proposals’, which will be held on Thursday 14 September 2017, Old Parliament House.
FINDING FISCAL SPACE – LESSONS FOR THE DEVELOPMENT OF NEW POLICY PROPOSALS
What are the ingredients of high quality policy proposals going into Cabinet and the Expenditure Review Committee? How can departments create fiscal space to innovate in public policy-making? And, how can policy officers win the war of ideas in a complex and contested policy environment? Mark Evans and Jane Halton AO will reflect on the key lessons that have emerged from a recent learning and development programme, co-designed by the Department of Finance, the Department of Prime Minister and Cabinet, the Treasury, the Department of Education and Training and the Institute for Governance and Policy Analysis which aimed at improving capability in the application of budgetary and policy tools in the development of new policy proposals. The programme was targeted at Executive Level and newly appointed Senior Executive Service officers in the Australian Public Service and has now been delivered to 76 public servants service-wide.
