Modern Public Services is a series of policy papers that discuss the challenges facing the state, which include giving citizens more control over policy- making, encouraging public servants to be more innovative, and restructuring the laws and practices that govern the public service.
The papers will be the foundation of a comprehensive, authoritative and influential plan for the structure of the New Zealand state, to be published before the 2014 election.
This year, they are the basis of our 10 principles, a powerful statement of the core values of public services that will be used to judge parties' policies leading up to this year’s election.
