What is Machinery of Government?

Machinery of Government (MoG) changes refer to changes made to public sector structures or administrative arrangements, arising from the decisions of the executive government.

The changes can result in the movement of functions, resources, and people from one agency to another. These changes are made through Administrative Arrangements Orders (AAO) issued by the Governor on the advice of the Premier which:

  • Allocate ministerial responsibility for the administration of legislation
  • Transfer functions from one agency to another
  • Create, amalgamate or abolish departments, agencies or other entities.

Who will be part of the new Department of Planning, Industry and Environment?

The Governor of NSW has signed Administrative Arrangement Orders that will result in the creation of 8 clusters from 1 July 2019, including a cluster containing a Department of Planning, Industry and Environment. This will be a new Department and will see the transfer of people and functions from the Department of Planning and Environment, the Department of Industry, the Office of Environment and Heritage, the Office of Local Government and major functions from other Departments. The Department of Planning, Industry and Environment (DPIE) will be made up of the following Agencies:

  • The Department of Planning Industry and Environment except Create NSW who will transfer to the Department of Premier and Cabinet (DPC)
  • The Department of Industry, except for staff moving to Treasury, Customer Service, Education, Family and Community Services and Justice.
  • The Office of Environment and Heritage, except for some Heritage staff who are moving to the Department of Premier and Cabinet.
  • The Office of Local Government.
  • Department of Premier and Cabinet staff involved in legislation allocated to the Deputy Premier (particularly the new regional functions).
  • Natural Resources Commission (as an Executive Agency).
  • Staff associated with certain property functions from the Department of Finance, Services and Innovation.
  • Staff associated with certain housing functions from the Department of Family and Community Services.

Jim Betts is the Secretary, Planning, Industry and Environment joining the Department from Infrastructure NSW.

Why are the changes taking place?

On the 2nd of April 2019 a new NSW Ministry was sworn-in to align the structure of the NSW Government with its new priorities.

The new structure has been designed to place greater focus on areas such as social reforms and regional NSW.  In summary, it will streamline how we operate and collaborate with each other for the benefit of the community.

When will the changes take place?

From 1 July 2019 the new Department of Planning, Industry and Environment will be formed and as part of this change a new legal entity has been created affecting the way you render your invoices.

How will these changes impact suppliers?
