There is a need for the APS to be accountable to its outcomes and responsibilities be taken when necessary.
Bureaucrats cannot simply hide behind the scene and escape their responsibilities.
The design and implementation of a number of big policy items in the stimulus programs should be accounted for, so future APS advice and services can learn from them.
The cash handouts (to necessarily increase deficits, debt and future taxpayers liabilities), the NBN, the pink batts, the BER, you name it.
Some people must take responsibilities for them.
Who are they?
