New heads of amalgamated Government departments announced

Government Relations

At the beginning of May, a shake up of the WA public sector was announced. The McGowan Government has provided details of who will be leading the new departments. 

The new agency heads will be instructed to deliver a 20 per cent reduction in the 521-member Senior Executive Service, the State's most senior bureaucrats.

The move is in line with the McGowan Government’s commitment to deliver a 40 per cent reduction in government departments.

Western Australia’s 41 Government departments will be reduced to 25 by July this year.  See the list of amalgamated departments here.

Cannings Purple will provide updates on public sector changes as they become available.
