The Treasury 2019-20 Corporate Plan sets out our purpose, operating context and priorities for the next four years (2019‑20 to 2022‑23).
Treasury is the Government’s pre-eminent economic adviser. We take enormous pride in our role in providing advice to the Government to support the effective management of the Australian economy.
Treasury’s purpose is to support and implement informed decisions on policies for the good of the Australian people, consistent with achieving strong, sustainable economic growth and fiscal settings.
We achieve this through our work promoting a sound economic environment, effective Government spending arrangements and regulations, well-functioning markets to encourage consumer and investor confidence, and sustainable taxation and revenue arrangements.
Our plan shows how we will direct our efforts to achieve our purpose. Everything we do across the department relates back to this plan, our primary planning document. We have structured this plan around the four strategic focus areas through which we deliver our purpose: fiscal, macroeconomic, markets and revenue.
Our plan provides you with an overview of Treasury’s operating environment, capability, key activities and how we measure performance over the forward estimates. It has been prepared in accordance with paragraph 35(1)(b) of the Public Governance, Performance and Accountability Act 2013 (PGPA Act) and I encourage you to read this plan in conjunction with Treasury’s Portfolio Budget Statements 2019‑20.
