All chief executives managed by the State Services Commissioner now have the same performance review date to align the performance year with the government's financial year. This allows for:
- decisions on chief executive performance to be aligned with the government reporting year
- chief executives to communicate the expectations to their second tier managers so that goals and expectations are clearly stated and all Public Service senior managers are heading in the same direction
- the development of processes aimed at improving consistency and fairness in terms of performance and pay outcomes.
