Treasury is divided into 5 groups:
- Corporate & Foreign Investment
- Revenue, Small Business and Housing.
In addition to Treasury’s Canberra office, Treasury has offices in Sydney, Melbourne and Perth. These offices enable Treasury to better understand the economy across all sectors and regions and help to form stronger relationships with the private sector and strengthen our organisational capability.
Treasury has officers deployed into key global markets who provide reporting that is an essential input into our advice to the Government. Officers are posted in Beijing, Jakarta, London, New Delhi, Paris, Tokyo, Washington and we maintain an overseas operation in Jakarta.
Dr Steven Kennedy was appointed Secretary to the Treasury with effect from 2 September 2019.
