Chief executives' expectations

The role of chief executives as agency, sector and system leaders is critical to the delivery of Better Public Services results and the reforms enabled by the 2013 amendments to the State Sector and Public Finance legislation.

Chief executives are expected to lead in new ways with a greater focus on system and sector-wide outcomes. A new set of expectations for all Public Service chief executives was implemented on 1 January 2014 and is revised annually as at 1 July.

The expectations are designed to encourage cross-system behaviour and achieve better alignment with government priorities and chief executives' stewardship obligations.
