This case study was written by Nehal Davison from the UK Institute for Government during a five week secondment to the Policy Project team in the New Zealand Department of the Prime Minister and Cabinet (DPMC). The report tells the story of the Policy Project – how it began, its objectives and state (as at the end of 2015), drawing on the Institute for Government’s framework for assessing state sector reform initiatives. The author reviewed relevant documentation and interviewed senior policy leaders in the New Zealand public service, including the Chief Executive of the DPMC (and Head of the Policy Profession), the Head of State Services, a number of Deputy Secretaries involved with the Policy Project and members of the Policy Project team.
