Executive Summary
The importance of reform
Public Service Reform has played
a key role in Ireland’s recovery in
recent years. Sustainable and farreaching reform has been essential
in ensuring that the Public Service
has been able to continue to
provide essential services and to
protect vulnerable groups in society.
Reform continues to have a very
important role. A high-performing
and effective Public Service is
critical to Ireland’s attractiveness
for business investment and
employment creation. Similarly, the
cost of providing public services
impacts on taxation levels and the
State’s funding requirements.
The Public Service comprises
approximately 289,600 members
of staff across a very broad range
of organisations delivering many
different services. The infographic
on the preceding pages provides
just a few examples of the volume
and diversity of services delivered
across all sectors.
