The updated Public Sector Reform Plan covering the period 2014-2016 was published on 14/1/2014 by the Department of Public Expenditure and Reform and it builds on the achievements and aims of the original Public Service Reform Plan (2011-2013). This current phase of ongoing and continuous change maintains the necessary emphasis on reducing costs and increasing efficiency but also moves the reform agenda towards a much stronger focus on the delivery of the best possible outcomes.  Reforms in the Justice and Equality sector are being driven by the Minister for Justice and Equality and are aligned with the overall Public Service Reform Programme and the Department’s Strategy Statement 2015-2017.
