IPAA’s National Strategic Plan 2022-2025 provides IPAA with the foundation to celebrate, reach out and work with others on excellence in public administration and public policy across Australia.

The Institute for Public Administration Australia (IPAA) has released its National Strategic Plan 2021-2025. Developed by IPAA’s National Council in consultation with IPAA’s eight Divisions, the plan provides a framework to realise our vision of:

  • enriching our offerings at a national level
  • building stronger connections between people working in the public sector and the wider public purpose sector and
  • increasing membership across each jurisdiction.

While the plan reflects the commonality of IPAA’s work across Australia, it also recognises and values the differences that each Division brings in terms of diversity of intent, purpose, membership, and business models.

The strategic plan is shaped around four strategic objectives:

  1. Speaking out as the voice of Australia’s public sectors.
  2. Supporting professional excellence in Australia’s public sectors.
  3. Building national and international partnerships.
  4. Improving our structures and processes.

These objectives are underpinned by nine actions that the Chief Executive Officers and Executive Directors of the eight Divisions, and the National Executive Director have been tasked to implement.

Developing strategic partnerships to help support signature events and new initiatives is key to the success of the plan.

‘Inclusivity, diversity and collaboration are important elements of our National Strategic Plan”, explains Caroline Walsh, National Executive Director. “We’re actively pursuing opportunities to partner with trusted organisations to support our members in new and creative ways.”

Monitoring, evaluation and reporting mechanisms have also been included in the strategy to measure ongoing successes and allow opportunity for refinement as required.
