About the Policy Transformation Program

The Division of Transformation, Planning & Assurance has been leading the Policy Transformation Program (PTP) to consolidate the existing policy suite of more than 260 policy documents into one code and 23 policies.

The feedback received via the Insight survey and subsequent listening groups reinforced the aims of the PTP to:

  • reduce the number of policies and cut down on red tape
