Corporate Direction 2016-17
The Corporate Direction identifies our priorities for 2016-17, as well as our mission, key stakeholders and strategic risks. It is a key part of our corporate planning framework.
From the Secretary
Treasury is working closely with the Government to meet its fiscal objectives, with responsible management of the State's budget remaining a priority in 2016-17. Improvement in business confidence and other economic indicators in recent times is positive. However, continued fiscal discipline is required to ensure these gains are maintained and to further strengthen the State’s economy.
As an organisation, we are focussed on becoming more diverse and agile, which is critical to position the Department to sustainably achieve our mission and continue to meet or exceed the expectations of key stakeholders. Our commitment to increasing the number of women in leadership roles is an important part of this strategy. This is complemented by our work to achieve White Ribbon accreditation and help to give profile to the issue of violence against women as a significant social issue.
We will also continue to strengthen our engagement and collaboration with key stakeholders, building on and refining our ‘no surprises’ approach, so that our policy advice is fully informed and our services are delivered at a high quality.
The focus on our people in our 2016-17 Corporate Direction is essential as we build on our strengths and work together to meet the challenges and opportunities ahead.
