SA government and IPAA state branch partner up

The South Australian branch of the Institute of Public Administration has formalised its role as a provider of professional development for state government departments and agencies.

The agreement between IPAA South Australia and the Senior Management Council which includes all chief executives of major government agencies of the SA government funds professional development programs and key events and forums hosted by IPAA SA

The chair of SMC, Department of the Premier and Cabinet chief executive Kym Winter-Dewhirst said: “We acknowledge the important role that IPAA plays in the provision of professional development opportunities and thought leadership events many of which align with the key priorities of the state government”.

The state government is focussed on creating a modern public service and one that embraces innovation through collaboration. This partnership is a key demonstration of that commitment and further opportunities to build public sector capacity in this area are anticipated.
