“The publication of the ‘Smart Rules’ has demonstrated that there has been serious endeavour to address some of the procedural inefficiencies that we have seen over the course of our work.

That said, there is more the department can do to embed the changes in behaviours that will be needed to make sure that the Smart Rules work as intended.”
