1 May 2018: The Government announced in January 2018 that the Better Public Services programme would not continue in this form. These pages have been archived.

Budget 2013 supports the Government's priority to deliver better public services - one of four priorities for this term:

  • Responsibly managing the Government's finances
  • Building a more competitive and productive economy
  • Delivering better public services within tight financial constraints
  • Rebuilding Christchurch

To deliver results and get better outcomes for New Zealanders, agencies need to work together for collective impact, be innovative and flexible, and show strong leadership.
