Edward Alfred "Ted" Evans AC is a retired Australian senior public servant.


Career and public life

Ted Evans joined the Australian Public Service in 1968, working in the Ipswich, Queensland branch of the Postmaster-General's Department. Studying while working, Evans graduated with a Bachelor of Economics from the University of Queensland in 1969 with first class honours and the University Medal. Upon graduation, Evans joined the Department of the Treasury.

Evans was appointed Secretary of the Treasury in March 1993, having previously been offered the job in 1991, and rejecting it. He retired from the public service in April 2001, having served eight years as Treasury head. Evans said that one of his proudest achievements as Secretary of Treasury was introducing the Taxation Review Board.

After retiring from the public sector, Evans joined the Westpac board, serving as a board member between 2001 and 2011, and as chairman between 2007 and his retirement.

In 2013, Evans was outspoken over the sacking of Martin Parkinson and three other public service Secretaries, saying that the Abbott Government was wasting good people and politicising the bureaucracy.


In June 1999, Evans was made a Companion of the Order of Australia in recognition of service to Australian economic policy development.
