Machinery of Government Changes

In April 2017 the Premier of Western Australia announced the first round of Machinery of Government (MOG) changes, effective as of 1 July 2017. These changes will affect a wide range of State Government departments and other agencies in the WA public sector. 
 
Affected agencies should refer to the State Records Office’s (SRO’s) Information Sheet on Management of Information Associated with Administrative Change for guidance on the management of information during their MOG planning. This document will assist with a smooth transition for the new Departments and help to protect all parties’ legal rights, obligations, and information assets. 
 
In addition to the Checklist for agencies available on the Public Sector Commission’s website, agencies are encouraged to contact the SRO for advice and assistance regarding MOG changes.
