Civil Service reform: one year on – BIS

Explains achievements the Department for Business, Innovation and Skills (BIS) has made in carrying out the 'Civil Service reform plan'.

This was published under the 2010 to 2015 Conservative and Liberal Democrat coalition government



On 19 June 2012, the Minister for the Cabinet Office and Head of the Civil Service jointly published the ‘Civil Service Reform Plan’. This set out a series of specific and practical actions to bring about an exceptional Civil Service providing the best for Britain, and is more skilled, less bureaucratic and more unified.

To mark the anniversary of this publication, the Cabinet Office has published the ‘Civil Service Reform: One Year On’ report, which provides a candid assessment of how the 18 actions in the original plan have been carried out. To support this milestone, we have published a short summary of implementation achievements within our department.
