Some of the gloss has been taken off the New South Wales government’s much celebrated efforts to centralise, digitise and streamline public service delivery.
Will Service NSW really produce benefits five times the cost of setting it up, as claimed in the second of two slightly dubious business cases? It’s hard to tell.
