Strategic Direction

Page updated 13 Jul 2015

The Treasury’s strategic direction is outlined in our Statement of Intent 2015-19. This document sets out our priorities and outcomes and how we plan to achieve these.

The Treasury has seven strategic intentions, which are set out in our Statement of Intent. These represent areas over which we have the greatest influence towards achieving the Government's goals.

These strategic intentions are:

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.

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) assists the Government to develop its overall strategy for the State services, provide advice on how to improve the system and manage significant issues.
