It also provides a guide to house style for the presentation of the deliverables. At the macro level, the toolkit introduces key issues in relation to public sector reform and pay and personnel and records management. At the micro level, it outlines the practical approach and methodology for delivering the project. It describes how the field work, which will comprise a series of case studies, will be undertaken, the types of data that will be collected and how the information will be used.
