Outcomes and Services

The Government has three goals for the Parliamentary term:

  • To keep New Zealanders safe from COVID-19
  • To accelerate our recovery and rebuild
  • To tackle our foundational challenges, in particular, housing affordability, climate change and child wellbeing.

Alongside this is an ambitious programme of system reform to improve productivity, social outcomes and wellbeing. This includes an overhaul of the health system, New Zealand’s planning laws and the management of the three waters (drinking water, wastewater and stormwater).

The Public Service has a major part to play in achieving each of these outcomes. The Commission’s role is to lead the Public Service to contribute most effectively to achieving the Government’s goals.
