Reform has been a central part of the response to the challenges of recent years. The final progress report on the implementation of the 2014-2016 Public Service Reform Plan makes for encouraging reading and outlines a number of achievements over the last three years including better procurement, smarter use of resources, embracing digital, deploying shared services, changing the HR approach and having a more accountable relationship with service providers.
As we begin 2018, we are now at a new stage of reform. The successor to the 2014-2016 Reform Plan is Our Public Service 2020, launched by Minister Donohoe in December. This new framework for driving development and innovation will deliver better outcomes for the public and build a responsive and agile public service over the period 2018-2020 and beyond. The framework is based on three pillars to include both new initiatives and actions that build on reforms already in place.
Our Public Service 2020 will encompass other strategies already in place including the Public Service ICT Strategy and the Open Data Strategy, ensuring that the potential for the digital delivery of services remains at the forefront of transformation. In addition, the creation of a Public Service Leadership Board will ensure shared ownership of actions right across the public service.
This conference will bring together key stakeholders from across Ireland’s public sector to look ahead to what’s next and how we can innovate and reconfigure to deliver Our Public Service 2020.
Fee includes documentation, lunch and other refreshments served during the conference and is payable in advance. Fee does not include accommodation or travel.
There are a limited number of opportunities to become involved with this conference as an exhibitor. This is an excellent way for organisations to showcase their expertise and raise their profile with a key audience of senior decision makers from across Ireland’s public sector.
