18 November 2019 – Halfway through Evolving Transport consultation and next steps

8 months ago

We are now halfway through the Evolving Transport consultation, and wanted to share a snapshot of feedback so far. To date, we have received 541 pieces of feedback with 5,667 staff briefed. The key themes include functions of the divisions, recruitment of senior leaders, and collaboration and working with other divisions and agencies but we still want to know what you think. Please keep sending your feedback to us.

We have answered a couple of key questions below but for answers to more of your frequently asked questions keep checking the Q&A section as this being updated regularly.

What happens to feedback and how is it being reviewed?

Feedback is provided to Divisional Leaders (appropriate to their division) as members of the Strategy and Operations Committee (SOC) on a weekly basis during consultation. SOC will meet over the next couple of weeks to review feedback and approve decisions to change or not change organisational structures.

Within divisions, the TfNSW People Directors are accountable for leading the review process with division leaders. This includes presenting key recommendations about any changes to proposed functions, structures or the placement or implementation approach to SOC for decision following the end of the consultation period. A final review will be undertaken the week following the end of consultation. Following consideration of all feedback, final decisions about the senior leader structures will be announced in the week of 9 December.

What will be announced the week of 9 December?

From the week of 9 December, the following information will be available:

  • The updated structures, following the feedback received during consultation and decisions made by the Executive team
  • Confirmed organisation design schedule for the next levels (phase 3B-2)
  • Confirmation of any acting arrangements
  • Confirmation of the placement approach and recruitment timelines
  • Any required updates to the interdependency and intra-dependency work
