Over the past several years, ASPA has been refining its organizational structure to improve its strategic and operational communication capacities to more effectively support the mission and strategic priorities of the Department. A substantive element of this change has been a shift from a purely operational structure focusing on defined services to one that builds a whole-of-ASPA approach that draws on all communication skills across each of three key portfolios—health care, public health, and human services. The proposed organizational realignments will, therefore, update and revise ASPA’s structure to reflect this more functional, strategic operational approach. The changes are described below: I.
