The Australian Public Service Employment Database (APSED) is a database that stores the employment data of all current and former APS employees. APSED is maintained by the Australian Public Service Commission and data is supplied to APSED from the Human Resource systems of APS agencies.

Why is APS employment data collected and how is it used?

The Public Service Commissioner has been given certain functions under section 41 of the Public Service Act 1999. To perform these functions the Public Service Commissioner requires agencies to supply data to APSED. This data is then used to compile reports and evaluate the state of the APS, including the annual State of the Service report.
