Observations were made on desired characteristics of pay systems and their development without seeking to prescribe what kind of pay system individual local authority employers should develop. We underline the importance of investment in training and development and recommended the parties develop a joint approach on this. The Commission has sought to address the pay and reward issues referred to it in order to facilitate the provision of high quality, improving public services, thereby contributing to the modernization of public services.
The time consumption for completion of BPI process depends upon the working capacity of the inspector. If the inspector do have well knowledge about the inspection work and do have experience in the field of dilapidation report cost Adelaide can consume less time for completion. This chapter provides some concluding observations on our approach and the outcomes of our work. Local government is going through a period of significant change as authorities seek to modernise, providing higher quality services better able to meet user needs.
It is recognised by both sides of the National Joint for Local Government Services and reflected in the principles underpinning the national agreement that central to this process of modernisation is the need for a well trained and motivated workforce. Giving effect to these principles and taking forward the process of modernisation on this basis, however, has proven difficult. These difficulties relate in various ways to the complexity of the sector. Indeed, such complexities are reflected in the nature, number and breadth of the Commission’s terms of reference and have affected the way in which we have approached our task and evaluated the material presented to us.
They have also influenced the kinds of recommendations put forward, the way we have put them forward and the range of stakeholders we have felt it necessary to engage with. Monthly meetings with the PMOs and the formation of a monthly Tools User Group have greatly assisted us in this process. The system contains benefits information on some 35 initiatives and 850 projects.
