Improving the Civil Service

In order to fulfil our obligations to the Government and the public, the Civil Service has to continue to develop and adapt to new challenges. This means responding to increasing demand, complexity and diversity – all within the context of providing greater value for money.

To help us do this, we have a range of programmes focusing on different aspects of improvement – from harnessing staff potential through better engagement, to systematic reviews of all departments.
