Part 5: The department's response

The Department of the Prime Minister and Cabinet welcomes the report of the Capability Review and the opportunity the review provided for the Department to work with the

APSC

to assess our capability to meet future objectives and challenges.

I welcome the findings of the report, in particular the recognition of our areas of strength as well as those areas for future improvement and growth. The specific recommendations are sensible and we have commenced work to implement them over the coming months.

I thank the

APSC

and specifically members of the senior review team, Jeff Whalan, Liza Carroll and Roger Beale, for their open and positive approach to the review.

The Department looks forward to working with the

APSC

as we progress implementation and pursue capability improvement across the department.

Dr I J Watt
Secretary
Department of the Prime Minister and Cabinet
