Public Sector Commission Public Sector Entity Survey 2014

In Western Australia, the Public Sector Commission's purpose is to bring leadership and expertise to the public sector to enhance integrity, effectiveness and efficiency. The Commission’s vision is of a high performing public sector serving the needs of the State now and into the future.

In accordance with section 22D of the Public Sector Management Act 1994, the Public Sector Commissioner reports annually to Parliament on the state of public sector administration and management, and on the extent of compliance with public sector standards and ethical codes. One of the primary information sources used for the State of the WA public sector report 2014 - Measuring up is the public sector entity survey (PSES).

The 2014 PSES collected information on the application of Commissioner’s Instruction No. 7 – Code of Ethics, agency codes of conduct and general principles of human resource management and public interest disclosure at June 2014 or for the 2013/14 financial year. The survey was sent to chief executive officers (CEOs) and chief employees of public sector entities with more than 20 full-time equivalents (FTE), including Senior Executive Service (SES) organisations, non-SES organisations and departments of state. Entities with between 20 and 100 FTE completed a shorter version of the survey.

In 2014, 86 public sector entities completed the survey. Of these, 19 entities completed the shorter version of the survey. Where entities were not asked a question, responses have been left blank in the data sets.
