More effective social services - final report


Government's response to the More Effective Social Services inquiry

The Government has released its full response to the Commission's report on More Effective Social Services.  

Minister Joyce's media release is published on the Beehive website.

In June 2014, the Productivity Commission was asked to look at ways to improve how government agencies commission and purchase social services. The final report was released in mid-September 2015. It makes several recommendations about how to make social services more responsive, client-focused, accountable and innovative.

A word version of our final report is available on request.
