No jobs in regional communities will be lost because of changes to the public service announced in Tuesday's NSW budget, state Member for Dubbo Dugald Saunders said.
Spending on consultants and contractors will be abolished, along with bonuses for highly paid departmental executives.

Long-service leave benefits will also be cut and made the same as those in other states.
Mr Saunders said "there's no regional jobs being affected by the changes to the public service".
"That's a guarantee," he told the Daily Liberal.
"Any suggestion that we're going to lose any jobs is off the mark.
"The jobs they're talking about are really back office jobs, they're not frontline jobs. It's about one per cent of the overall employment of the public service."
The NSW Opposition said the government could not be trusted.
"When the Premier sold the Land Titles Office she guaranteed that no jobs would be lost in the Sydney office or the regional offices like Bathurst," Shadow Finance Minister Clayton Barr said.
"Here we are two years later and 25 per cent of those workforces, 200 jobs in total, are gone, never to be replaced," he said.
"Just last week we saw the Transport Minister give a speech where he foreshadowed job cuts and privatisations across NSW's public transport network despite the Premier saying there would be no more sell-offs during the election campaign."
