The sector and the Commission

The Victorian public sector comprises two key areas: public service bodies, such as government departments and administrative offices, and public entities, such as hospitals, TAFEs and water authorities.

In supporting the sector, the Victorian Public Sector Commission’s (VPSC) public administration program two-fold. The VPSC enhances capability and performance, and also promotes knowledge and understanding throughout government and the broader Victorian community.

The VPSC supports the sector in three ways. It:

  • produces the annual the State of the Public Sector in Victoria report
  • conducts commissioned reviews to improve the delivery and integration of government services
  • undertakes research projects on critical challenges facing the future of the public sector.
