Outcome and program structure

In this reporting period, we operated within the Australian Government’s outcome and output framework published in the Portfolio Budget Statements 2018–19 (PBS) and the AIFS Corporate Plan 2018/19 to 2021/22. The Institute has a single planned outcome: Increased understanding of factors affecting how families function by conducting research and communicating findings to policy makers, service providers and the broader community.

All our activities have been directed to achieving this outcome. Key performance criteria, detailed in the ‘Report on performance’ section, measure the Institute’s core outputs and deliverables. The Institute’s management accountability performance is described in ‘Management and accountability’ section, and its finances in ‘Financial statements’ section.
