CES is assisting government departments in Ireland and Northern Ireland in undertaking reform and systems change initiatives to improve outcomes for citizens using public services. In this work CES will draw from its experience of helping government to implement a number of programmes, systems change and capacity building initiatives across the public service.
In March 2016, CES published the report 'Implementing public services reform: messages from the literature' and a summary.
