Performance Improvement Framework - Treasury Participation in Reviews

Page updated 18 Oct 2012

Like other agencies, the Treasury participates in the Performance Improvement Framework (PIF) review process.

The PIF was developed by the central agencies - the Treasury, State Services Commission and the Department of the Prime Minister and Cabinet - and senior State sector chief executives. It looks at an agency's current and future fitness for purpose and helps to identify their strengths and areas for improvement.

The Treasury underwent a formal PIF review in late 2010. The Performance Improvement Framework Formal Review of the Treasury was published on 27 May 2011.

As part of the formal PIF review process, the Treasury undertook a PIF self-assessment in mid-2010, which helped us to prepare for the central agency review and begin making progress in areas where improvement was needed. The results are set out in the Performance Improvement Framework - Findings of Self-Assessment.

The Treasury's Change Programme is the vehicle through which we pace, prioritise and learn from initiatives that aim to improve our performance. Delivering Our Ambition for the Treasury - Embedding a Focus on Continuous Improvement was published alongside our formal PIF review in May 2011. It set out the focus of our Change Programme for 2011/12, which included activities already underway to address the recommendations of the PIF review.

The Treasury has now participated in a PIF Follow Up review. Follow Up reviews are a recent innovation intended to enable agencies to take stock of their progress 12-18 months after a formal review. The Performance Improvement Framework Follow Up Review of the Treasury was published on 18 October 2012. Read the related media release by the Treasury: Treasury publishes performance review and annual report (18 October 2012).

The Performance Improvement Framework Follow Up Review - Treasury Response outlines the Treasury’s Change Programme for 2012/13, which has been updated to incorporate our focus for the coming year and takes into account the issues identified in the Follow Up review.

Further information relating to the PIF review process and the reviews of other agencies is available on the State Services Commission website: www.ssc.govt.nz/pif.
