One hundred years of New Zealand's Public Service

Last updated: 8 April 2013

A short history marking 100 years of the enactment of the Public Service Act 1912.

In 2012, it was 100 years since the enactment of the Public Service Act 1912 and the set-up of New Zealand's Public Service Commission (PSC) – now referred to as the State Services Commission (SSC).

We celebrated this milestone by commissioning a brief video and creating a centenary souvenir publication, New Zealand and public service history since 1913. You can view the video and publication as well as a short introduction on our 100 Years of Public Service page, or view the video or publication directly using these links:
