Like all government agencies, the Treasury focuses on a number of key results, or outcomes, that support government priorities.
The three Treasury outcomes represent areas over which the Treasury has the greatest influence towards achieving the Government's goals. These outcomes are:
- Improved Economic Performance
- A Stable and Sustainable Macroeconomic Environment
- A More Effective and Efficient State Sector
Each of these outcomes reflects - and gives effect to - the Treasury's roles as an organisation.
Our economic and financial roles mean we provide advice on issues with a significant impact on the economy as a whole, as well as on fiscal management, large areas of spending, long-term trends, financial management and probity issues. As a central agency, the Treasury (along with the State Services Commission and the Department of the Prime Minister and Cabinet) supports government strategy development and implementation, and public sector performance.
While the work of individual staff may contribute to more than one outcome, the Treasury is structured into policy groups based on the three outcomes. This helps to create a shared purpose and gives a concerted focus to the Treasury's work.
