Parramatta Justice Precinct Listening Meetings – Performance Management Framework – June 2015

Parramatta Justice Precinct Bulletin re Listening Meetings – 15 June 2015 (PDF version)


The Government Sector Employment (GSE) Act (Section 67) requires all NSW public sector departments and agencies to implement performance management systems. The Public Service Commission (PSC) has directed departments to be compliant with this condition.

Your union, the PSA, sees the value in agencies basing performance management systems on the prerequisites of the PSC’s Capability Framework. These would provide members with a common foundation to negotiate performance agreements and engage in performance reviews. However, as not all agencies have introduced new role descriptions based on the Capability Framework, there is potential for unfair and inequitable performance management systems to be created within and across agencies.

The PSA is consulting with members through “listenings” so that members can identify their concerns and have input into addressing them.

Parramatta Justice Precinct (PJP) Listenings

Your union conducted two “listenings” with PSA members at the PJP on Thursday, 4 June 2015. Members from a number of areas and agencies under the Justice Department umbrella located at the PJP attended.

Thank you to all the participants at the “listenings” which provided an opportunity for members to consider the following:

• How can we ensure learning and development is undertaken in a fair and effective way?
• What does a fair and reasonable performance management system look like?
• To successfully resolve unsatisfactory performance, an employee must have…….(finish this sentence).


Members provided invaluable feedback at the “listenings”. The information collected will be used in the development of the PSA’s position paper on the Performance Management Framework. The PSA’s position paper will be provided to all members when it is completed.
