Analysing major policy issues and designing strategic solutions
The Prime Minister's Strategy Unit has three main roles:
The Strategy Unit works closely, and often jointly, with other government departments and external stakeholders on a broad range of domestic policy, published through a range of outputs including Green and White Papers. The Unit puts strong emphasis on analytical rigour and an evidence based approach to developing strategy, looking at issues from first principles. While some of its work is one-off, other work on issues such as public service reform, home affairs and welfare reform tends to be ongoing.
