APS200 events are designed to inform and update SES Band 3 and higher level leaders on current cross-APS issues, challenges and opportunities. The events also provide a platform to exchange ideas, share knowledge and contribute to the implementation of Government priorities, including the APS reform agenda.
APS200 events are organised in partnership between the Department of the Prime Minister and Cabinet and the Australian Public Service Commission. Participation is by invitation only to members of the APS200. Proxy arrangements do not apply.
The APS200 group is the most senior leadership group in the APS. It includes:
all SES Band 3 or higher level officers in APS agencies (that is, agencies that engage staff under the Public Service Act 1999)
officers of equivalent seniority in non-APS agencies whose work responsibilities and employment conditions are closely aligned to those of the APS.
