APS People Policy and Guidance (formerly DWRM)

The Defence Workplace Relations Manual (DWRM) was archived on 30 September 2017.

APS People Policy and Guidance is no longer available on this internet site and is now located on the PeopleConnect website on the DRN (Defence intranet).

As Defence policy prohibits live links from the Defence internet to the DRN it is not possible to place a hyperlink to the APS People Policy site on this page.

To find the APS People Policy site, using a DRN connected terminal:

  • open Internet Explorer (if you're using a DRN connected terminal the DRN home page should appear upon opening)
  • from the DRN home page left hand navigation choose:
    • 'PeopleConnect'
    • then choose 'APS People Policy (formerly DWRM)' from the 'Working in Defence' menu.

Should a copy of an APS People Policy or a DWRM policy be required for historical reference, please email detailing the policy you require and a copy can be provided.
