Spare a thought for all those in the ACT Public Service today. Katy Gallagher has announced that Treasury has taken over control of their services via the “Shared Services Centre”.
“Where possible, resources are being channelled into integrated, streamlined, across government systems and processes. This allows corporate services staff to work collectively in a more efficient environment.”
In my experience this means the corporate services staff will be working in their own little empire and the service delivery sections will, in very short order, have to re-build their own capabilities leaving the SSC as an appendix to the administration.
But hey, maybe it’ll work this time?
