Capping data: The cap on the size of core government administration has been reset at 36,475 full time equivalent (FTE) positions. The reset cap is based on the number of FTE staff in core government administration plus unfilled vacancies as at 30 June 2011. The cap is applied globally, to the total FTE staff in core government administration, not to individual organisations. The State Services Commissioner is responsible for overseeing the cap. See the six-monthly capping data updates here.
HRC survey: The Human Resource Capability (HRC) survey provides information about the Public Service workforce. The survey provides information on staff numbers, rates of pay and employment benefits, recruitment and retention rates, diversity and leave. Twenty pieces of information are collected about every public service employee.
The survey is run annually and collects anonymous information about Public Service employees. The survey provides both a snapshot of the Public Service workforce at 30 June and information about employees who have left during the preceding 12 months.
