The paper "Effective Public Sector Management" is a great example of an assignment on management. In this case, the Australian Capital Territory (ACT) Government is in a dilemma associated with continued exploration and usage of the new communication system to assist in the emergencies. Additional the ACT Government supports the re-examination of the usage of communication through the text to make emergency calls whereby the public texts are received by a national contact centre and then directed to the appropriate jurisdiction where the text messages are needed. The population in Canberra supports the provision of emergency services since there is the availability of the police ambulance and fire services, which respond at reasonable times and even during the Friday and Saturday nights.
Ultimately, the demand for new forms of response continues increasing in collaboration with the expansion of the ambulance service. The ACT Government would wish to improve the access to the emergency response and response time and remain using the current communication system in the emergency management. However, the issue of the hats that are supposed to be won by the city’ s governor puts the public sector management in Canberra in a dilemma.
The issue of the nation’ s capital and how it should be managed puts the city’ s governor in a situation; whereby he cannot fully make the required decisions since they are partly made by the Commonwealth Parliament. There is also the local and the regional hats. The ACT Government’ s budget is faced with the global financial crisis to the local business. For the achievement of the improved emergency management and efficient civil preparedness in the human and natural disaster, the diverse groups in the community are engaged in the communications. Possible alternative solutionsFor effective public sector management in relation to emergency management, different strategies should be applied. The possible options comprise of; Making of proper plans for the actual and potential risks and following the appropriate procedures for the emergency management.
The ACT Government should ensure that there is the application of an intuitive and simple emergency communication system. During the emergency, the communication system should allow multiple or public usage of the system. However, this should be managed on permissions basis (Cook, Woodall, Harper, and Benger, 2011, 633).
