The Institute of Public Administration Australia (IPAA) is the professional association for those involved in public administration. It is a voluntary, non-profit, member organisation enabling people with an interest in public administration and public sector reform to exchange ideas on trends, practices and innovations in public administration. The Institute seeks to promote good governance and excellence in the provision of public services in Australia.
The Institute of Public Administration aims to contribute to the development of public policy and management practices that will enhance the performance of the public sector. IPAA recognises the increasing demands on public administration to deliver better and more efficient public services, and the important role it plays as the professional face of a confident public sector in Australia.
IPAA has Divisional web sites for most States and Territories, which can be accessed via www.ipaa.org.au
