Shared Services in the Irish Public Service is at an early stage of maturity.
The NSSO has a leadership role in supporting the other public sector Shared Services offices and divisions as they advance their individual Shared Services plans. The Sectors Leaders Network, made up of the Shared Services leads from each the four sectors of Health, Local Government, Education and the Civil Service, meet regularly, working together to improve Shared Services delivery within the Public Service.
The Network organises seminars for public service staff on topics related to Shared Services and it hosted the first conference on Shared Services in the Irish Public Service in 2017. Read the report on the conference Here
