State Sector Act Reform:  Rethinking the boundaries of public services


The State Sector Act underpins the management of New Zealand’s state sector.    The delivery of public services has changed significantly over the 30 years since the Act’s passing – both in nature and in who does the delivery.  Yet community provision and other forms of provision are unacknowledged.  Three weeks into the six week public consultation on the government’s proposed reform of the Act, Glenn and Brenda reflect on whether the government’s proposals go far enough.


Glenn Barclay is a PSA national secretary.  Formerly a member of the PSA’s policy team and the Executive Director of the Occupational Therapists’ Association, Glenn, like Brenda, has a long standing interest in State sector reform.


Brenda Pilott is the national manager of Social Service Providers Aotearoa.  Before that she was a senior public servant, heading policy at the Department of Child Youth and Family Services, and was national secretary of the Public Service Association for ten years.  As PSA national secretary, Brenda was closely involved with discussions about the 2013 changes to the State Sector Act and, with Glenn the PSA’s programme of work on rethinking the State sector.
