The National Framework for Public Sector Mobility has been developed to facilitate successful rapid surge mobility across jurisdictions. It will enable our public sectors to continue to respond to the unprecedented challenges COVID-19 has presented, and the continued delivery of critical services to Australians, when they need them most.

The Framework was endorsed by the Commonwealth, State and Territory Public Sector Commissioners on 30 July 2020. This will be supported by a suite of material for effective implementation between jurisdictions.

National Framework for Public Sector Mobility

OCPSE is supporting the South Australian Government to provide effective management and guidance to public sector agencies to ensure ongoing delivery of critical services during the COVID-19 pandemic.

In line with the declaration on 16 March 2020 of a public health emergency, the Commissioner for Public Sector Employment has issued the new Determination of the Commissioner for Public Sector Employment: 3.1: Employment Conditions – Hours of Work, Overtime and Leave: Supplementary Provisions for COVID-19. This has been published to support efforts to minimise and prevent the spread of COVID-19 within South Australia and ensure the Public Sector can continue to deliver essential services to the community.

The Premier has issued a new Direction requiring all chief executives and agency heads to act in accordance with this new Determination.
