Government News has a rundown on Tony Abbott’s great simplification of Ministerial titles.
Less cluttered, better focused, more energetic.
That was message to public servants and the electorate in Prime Minister elect Tony Abbott’s First Ministry announcement where not everyone gets a prize, and some portfolio ministries just plain disappear through downsizing likely to be mirrored in public service agency roles.
“What I’ve tried to do is to avoid long and sonorous titles, because once you start mentioning one lot, you’ve got to start mentioning everyone or they feel that they’re in some way neglected,” Mr Abbott said.
“There will be a reorganisation of portfolios that will flow from this particular Ministry . . . the administrative arrangements order will be published after the swearing in on Wednesday and some reorganisations inside the public service will obviously follow from that.”
And if you can’t find your position after Wednesday it might be you’re surplus to requirements!
