How do we develop and maintain the skills to deal with the hardest policy questions - about people and their lives and aspirations, about the industrial climate, about the sustainability of our national resources, about the protection of our borders? The foundations of our public service haven't changed. While a lot of program delivery will be handled by contractors, and a lot of routine transactions conducted on-line, the primary role for public servants will be as policy developers, policy analysts, evaluators and evidence seekers, knowledge brokers and consensus builders, and they need to be well educated to do this. We want to work in partnership across government, but also very importantly in partnership with our academic colleagues. ... lots of challenges for us in government and lots of challenges for academia, and I commend Flinders University, and look forward to strong working relationships between government and academia.
