Promote an Efficient Government Workforce

Government Departments should start working together and talking to each other.  The numerous layers of middle management should be cut.  Staff should not be automatically replaced when they leave or retire (natural wastage).  Redundancy schemes such as MARS, where basically the worker can hold the Government to ransom, should be avoided.  Civil Servants who have left with large pay-outs should not be re-employed in any Government position.

At present, the civil services does not promote a productive work ethic (I know, I was a civil servant in a past life).  Many view their position as a job for life.  Although there are some hard-working individuals, the general perception of civil servants (especially middle management) is a bunch of pen pushers who have no incentive to work or pull their weight and if anything goes wrong they pass the buck.
