This is an update to the 1996 portfolio and continues to provide a framework for building and sustaining effective public service organisations, based on current good practice and the wide experience of senior public sector managers throughout the Commonwealth. The second edition contains much of the original material, now updated together with several new sections. The Portfolio update is designed to be used as a companion resource to the Public Service Country Profiles which. Together the documents can be used as a basis for benchmarking to compare activities and best practice across different national settings.

The strength of the public service can be judged by its ability to ensure the provision of achievable, realistic and timely policy advice to government. A government needs, although might not always welcome, sound guidance on how and to what extent its desired objectives might be best met. The public service is the primary provider of such policy advice. However, it is argued with increasing force that if the public service is the only source of such advice, then it will inevitably show some degree of bias in order to minimise disruption for itself in the future.
