The Workforce Information Report, compiled by the Office of the Commissioner for Public Sector Employment (OCPSE), is the official record of the size and composition of the South Australian Public Sector workforce, as at 30 June each year.

To better understand the workforce, the Commissioner for Public Sector Employment collects workforce data from all public sector agencies in South Australia, as described under Section 19 of the Public Sector Act 2009.

The Report outlines the South Australian Public Sector’s workforce size, structure and composition, which reflects changing community needs, government priorities, the economic environment, and demographic trends. Information collected and presented in the Report is based on standardised Workforce Information Data Definitions.

The public sector uses this valuable information to plan for demographic changes, and ensure the right skills are recruited and retained to deliver services for the South Australian community.

Agencies are responsible for the accuracy and completeness of all data stored in business systems or reported to the OCPSE to support the compilation of the Workforce Information Report.
