Restructures at two federal portfolios, Industry and Defence, give the first concrete indications of what the Australian Public Service will look like in the Thawley/Lloyd era. Accountability back in the hands of agency heads, with increasing need for cooperation, means those who work across aisles get noticed.
One of the rising stars of the Department of Prime Minister and Cabinet is being moved to the Industry portfolio to head one of the federal government’s priority service delivery roles.
Former PM&C executive coordinator David Hazlehurst (pictured above, launching the Digital Transformation Office) will be bumped up to deputy secretary as he takes over the program and service delivery group as part of a shakeup at the Department of Industry and Science.
The changes were announced yesterday in a bulletin to staff from Industry and Science secretary Glenys Beauchamp. This is the first department to announce new changes since the release of the Secretaries Board guidance on organisational structures last week, prioritising flatter management.
