Application of these Guidelines

6 The previous Guidelines issued by the State Services Commission primarily applied to public servants, with some brief additional material for those working in the wider State sector who less commonly attend select committees. In these revised Guidelines, the term "officials" refers to both public servants and personnel in agencies in the wider State sector, unless the specific context indicates otherwise. 5 For present purposes, "officials" includes board members, office holders, and employees of Crown entities and State owned enterprises. The Guidelines will also be applicable to officials in non-Public Service departments such as the New Zealand Police, as well as being relevant to a diverse range of other agencies in the State sector.
