The future of some of Tasmania's agency heads under the new Liberal Government will become clearer today.
There is speculation some senior bureaucrats are about to lose their jobs or be sidelined.
They include the head of the Department of Premier and Cabinet Rhys Edwards, former Victorian Police Commissioner and now Justice head Simon Overland, Infrastructure's Norm McIlfatrick and Mark Kelleher from Economic Development.
During the campaign, the Liberals signalled the promise to merge two departments to create a Department of State Growth would led to executive job cuts.
They have also been critical of Mr Overland, with the incoming Attorney General Vanessa Goodwin once describing him as having "more baggage that the Titanic."
Most of the public servants in question have been contacted by the ABC but none have chosen to comment.
The head of Tasmania's Local Government Association Allan Garcia has been touted to take over as the head of Premier and Cabinet.
He also declined to comment.
The Liberal Government would not confirm the speculation, but said it would make a statement about administrative arrangements today.
It follows the new Cabinet's first meeting which the Premier, Will Hodgman, described as long but productive.
Relief for developers
The state executive signed off on its first policy decision the day after being sworn in.
The Liberal Cabinet has approved an immediate two-year suspension of headworks charges in an effort to kick-start development and create jobs.
It was an election promise designed to stimulate $100 million in investment.
The Premier, Will Hodgman, says it will reduce the cost of doing business in Tasmania.
The new Treasurer Peter Gutwein hopes the move will bring forward some projects.
"What we're hoping is that we do see a raft of new developments brought forward because what this economy desperately needs is a shot in the arm," he said.
Projects already going through the development application process will be eligible to have the charges waived.
