The release of the long-awaited Thodey review isn't the only thing shaking up the Australian Public Service.
The Morrison government made flurry of public service and board appointments on Friday, as it cleared the decks ahead of the Christmas break.

Australia's deputy high commissioner to the United Kingdom, Matthew Anderson, has been named as the next director of the Australian War Memorial. The career diplomat, veteran and children's book author will replace Dr Brendan Nelson.
Rachel Noble will become the first woman to lead a major Australian intelligence agency as the new Director-General of the Australian Signals Directorate. Lieutenant General John Frewen has been acting in the role after former director-general Mike Burgess was picked to lead the Australian Security Intelligence Organisation in August. Ms Noble's appointment comes six months after she was last promoted to head the Australian Cyber Security Centre.
Helen Nugent will return for a second two-year term as chair of the National Disability Insurance Agency board. This is after concerns were raised that she had conducted NDIA meetings out of Macquarie Group headquarters in Sydney and used her personal email, connected to the bank's server, for NDIS matters.
Paul O'Sullivan, Robyn Kruk, John Langoulant, Estelle Pearson, Sandra Birkensleigh, James Minto, Glenn Keys and John Walshhave also been reappointed to the NDIA board, while Andrea Staines and Dr Martin Laverty will depart at the end of their current terms.

Eric Groom and Justin Oliver have been appointed as full-time Commonwealth members of the Australian Energy Regulator, while Catriona Lowe will become a full-time state/territory member.
Mr Groom has been part of the Australian Energy Regulator's Consumer Challenge Panel and held senior roles at the Independent Pricing and Regulatory Tribunal of New South Wales.
