Framework of enquiry

The framework of enquiry outlined in the Phase 1 report is intended to enable an open and serious engagement with the important challenges facing the public sector now and over the next decade. It is reproduced separately from the Phase 1 report as a stand alone document to stimulate thinking and reflection.


Phase 1 report: Modern governance in the public sector
