Corporate Plan 2016-17



Secretary’s message

Treasury's 2016-17 Corporate Plan sets out the Department's purposes, priorities and the key directions we will take over the next four years.

As Australia's pre-eminent economic adviser, the Treasury serves the Australian people by assisting the Government to manage emerging domestic and international opportunities and pressures. Treasury provides advice across a range of issues: including tax, the Budget, the economy, financial sector, foreign investment, structural policy, small business and international economic policy. The Treasury also works with State and Territory governments on key policy areas as well as managing federal financial relations.

The Treasury needs high-performing staff to generate ideas that will drive policy development and the implementation of Government policy. We must also continue to engage well with stakeholders, ensuring we have a strong understanding of the business environment, the domestic economy and the global context. The Treasury's Sydney and Melbourne offices have and will continue to help form stronger relationships with the private sector and strengthen our organisational capability.

I am pleased to present the Department of the Treasury's 2016-17 Corporate Plan, which covers the years 2016-17 to 2019-20, in accordance with paragraph 35(1)(b) of the Public Governance, Performance and Accountability Act 2013.

John A. Fraser
Secretary to the Treasury
