Policy Professionals

The NSW Public Sector Community of Policy Professionals (Policy Comprac) is for NSW Public Sector employees working in any policy related role, located anywhere in across NSW.   

The purpose of the Policy Comprac is to provide opportunities for policy professionals from across the NSW public sector to professionally develop and network, and to share:

  • knowledge, policy best practice and expertise 
  • relevant technical training and keynote speakers
  • case studies of innovative policy initiatives from across the sector and lessons learnt
  • useful policy resources and tools
  • policy relevant guidelines, templates, guidance, information and frameworks

Our popular, free webinar program is now in its third year and provides opportunities for policy professionals to hear from senior leaders and experienced practitioners. If you would like to present a short webinar on any policy related topic, please contact us at the email address below.   

NSW Policy Toolkit project: in 2021 a sub-committee of Policy Comprac members was established and is now developing a policy toolkit of templates and resources for optional use across the sector. This will draw on existing resources available in different agencies and may develop some new templates. This is to ensure that good practice and resources are shared. If you would like to contribute your time, expertise or any policy resources to this project please contact us at the email address below.

The Policy Comprac Advisory Board was established in October 2018, and the first event was held in March 2019. We now have over 1,850 members.
