Performance Management in the Australian Public Service

This guide, Performance Management in the APS, is designed to support agencies to adopt performance management practices at all levels of their organisations that contribute to a high-performance APS culture. This includes both rewarding and recognising talent, and managing underperformance when required.

The guide draws from experience of advising on performance management in the APS, and existing best practice across the APS. It provides guidance for agencies to help them adopt performance management practices that build capability, set clear expectations of all employees, and enable all employees to contribute.
