Te Kawa Mataaho Public Service Commission is preparing a Long-term Insights Briefing on the trends, risks and opportunities facing our Public Service.

You can find information about what Long-term Insights Briefings are here.

Which topic will the Briefing cover?

We recently asked you what the focus of our Briefing should be. Consultation on the subject matter opened on 20 August 2021 and closed on 20 September 2021.  

We received submissions through our online survey, and via email, which have been published anonymously. Some substantial submissions received via email are published alongside their authors’ names with permission. We have also compiled a summary of these submissions. During the consultation period, we had discussions with four experts in public management and futures thinking and have compiled our notes from these conversations.

The Commissioner has taken feedback from consultation into consideration and made a decision to select the following topic for this Briefing:

How can we better support public participation in government in the future?

What happens next?

We will continue to engage with stakeholders as we develop the draft Briefing.

The consultation indicated that there is interest in attending workshops on the Long-term Insights Briefings. We are in the planning stages of this and will be sending further updates to interested parties. If you would be interested in being involved or would like to discuss the next stage of the briefing process please get in touch at longterminsights@publicservice.govt.nz.

We will also be seeking your feedback on the draft Briefing in the new year, with a final Briefing due on 30 June 2022.
