The initiative that the Head of the Policy Profession developed in 2014 to improve the policy system became known as ‘The Policy Project’.
The Policy Project was co-funded initially by larger and medium-sized government agencies with a policy advice function on a year-by-year basis. The Head of the Policy Profession has succeeded in gaining the agreement of all public service agencies to fund the Policy Project for the 2020/21 to 2022/23 period.
The Head of the Policy Profession is supported in his policy system leadership role by the Policy Profession Board – and both are supported by the Policy Project team. Deputy chief executives with policy responsibilities from across government – the Tier 2 Policy Leaders’ Network – are also key partners, as are Policy Capability Leads nominated by each agency.
