I present the department’s Corporate Plan 2018–19 as required under paragraph 35(1)(b) of the Public Governance, Performance and Accountability Act 2013 (PGPA Act). The Plan is prepared in accordance with the Public Governance, Performance and Accountability Rule 2014.
This Plan is our primary strategic planning document and is to be read alongside our Portfolio Budget Statements and Annual Report – these documents are core elements of our performance and accountability framework.
The four-year horizon for the Plan sets out our priorities and key actions, our capability improvement agenda, our approach to managing risk, and sets out how we will measure our performance in delivering the health system for Australians, now and through to 2021–2022. It also outlines who we are, what we are here to do, where we are heading and how we will get there.
