The Treasury’s strategic direction is outlined in our Statement of Intent 2013-18. This document sets out our priorities and outcomes and how we plan to achieve these.
A summary of the progress made against the goals in our Statement of Intent, as well as information on the Treasury’s financial position, can be found in our most recent Annual Report.
The key Treasury outcomes set out in our Statement of Intent and Annual Report represent areas over which we have 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.
