Australia's public service has been privatised by stealth.
Under both Labor and the Liberals jobs have been cut and government departments hollowed out, as work is palmed off to the Big-4 consulting firms, who are each massive donors to the major parties.
The Greens have a plan to rebuild a strong public service by:
- Restoring staffing levels in the public service to 2012-13 levels and abolishing staffing caps
- Increasing public servant pay by 4% p.a. over the next four years
- Imposing a cap on consultants and contractors
- Enshrining the right to freedom of political expression for public servants into law
