Quit the Red Tape Habit - The Ultimate Bureaucratic Challenge

22 March 2016

The Belcher Red Tape Review, conducted by Ms Barbara Belcher and presented to the Secretaries Board in October 2015, provides a strong basis for the implementation of internal red tape reduction reforms in the Australian Public Service.

At this unique IPAA event we heard from a panel of speakers about progress on the implementation of internal red tape reduction reforms. Chaired by Virginia Haussegger, Journalist and Commentator, panel speakers included:

  • Dr Stein Helgeby, Deputy Secretary, Department of Finance
  • Sue Sinclair, Deputy Commissioner, Australian Taxation Office
  • Louise Hand, First Assistant Secretary, Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade
  • Stephanie Foster, Deputy Commissioner, Australian Public Service Commission
  • Brendan Sargeant, Associate Secretary, Department of Defence

The session focused on informing and connecting a new network of like-minded government officers who want to see change and innovation in the APS and help make it happen.
