Action 9: Strengthen whole-of-government collaboration

Whole-of-government collaboration requires public servants to work together across their organisations to develop better co-ordinated public services and policy which enables delivery of the Programme for Partnership Government. This is a key element not just of national policies, such as the National Planning Framework, but also in the achievement of sectoral strategies, for example the Healthy Ireland strategy. The Reform and Delivery Office in the Department of Public Expenditure and Reform, the Department of the Taoiseach, the Department of Housing, Planning and Local Government, the Department of Rural and Community Development, the Local Government Management Agency, and other relevant government departments and public service organisations will be responsible for implementing the action.
