The delivery system of public goods and services in the different spheres of government lacks uniformity, standardisation and integration. This lack has contributed to a call for harmonisation of public administration management systems, conditions of services and the universal application of norms and standards across the three spheres of government and organs of state.

This article looks at the strategic, but legislative interventions and instruments introduced by the Public Administration Management Bill (2013) in the context of an emerging single public service.
