RESIGNATION OF THE AUSTRALIAN PUBLIC SERVICE COMMISSIONER, MR STEPHEN SEDGWICK AO, FIPAA

Mr Stephen Sedgwick AO, FIPAA is recognised as a world leader in public administration. Through his leadership in the Australian Public Service (APS), Mr Sedgwick has made a significant contribution for the betterment of our nation.

“I congratulate Stephen’s long career of service to the Australian people and wish him best for the future,” said Shadow Special Minister of State Gary Gray AO MP.

“I worked closely with Stephen as Special Minister of State in the former Government and enjoyed his insight and his dedication to the role.”

“In particular I would like to thank Stephen for his work at the Australian Public Service Commission to increase the number of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander employees in the APS.”

Mr Sedgwick will finish his term as Australian Public Service Commissioner on 13 December 2014.

He was Secretary to the Commonwealth Departments of Finance, Employment and Education between 1992 and 2002. He became Australian Public Service Commissioner in December 2009.

“Despite the Abbott Government’s Commission of Audit’s call for the abolition of the role of the Australian Public Service Commissioner, I trust the Government acknowledge the need to act quickly and appoint a new Commissioner of equivalent experience and quality,” said Mr Gray.
