We proactively release material that the Minister for the Public Service has seen from us as part of our ongoing commitment to openness and transparency.

The Minister for the Public Service receives a range of advice from us and is expected to make a wide range of decisions across the Public Service. Some of these decision making processes will take longer than others. This means that some material delivered to the Ministers may relate to items that remain under active consideration and will take longer to be proactively released.

When we are able to, we will release these documents, with some redactions made in line with the withholding grounds under the Official Information Act 1982.

This information is released in two stages. We will release a list of the titles of briefings and reports that the Minister received from the Commission first and then at the end of each month a copy of the advice that has been considered by the Minister will be released.

If you need any additional information or want to lodge a request for official information, email: commission@publicservice.govt.nz
