Outcome and program structure

Our Portfolio Budget Statement 2017-18 describes our outcome and program structure.

In 2017-18 our outcome was:

To improve the user experience for all Australians accessing government information and services by leading the design, development and continual enhancement of whole-of-government service delivery policies and standards, platforms and joined up services.

We worked to achieve this outcome through one program:

The objective of this program is to support agency delivery of high volume services, build and contribute to whole-of-government platforms and increase capability of the public service to deliver digital transformation.

Our Corporate Plan 2017-21 described how we planned to achieve our intended outcome and also went further to refine our purpose, reflect our expanded responsibilities and clearly articulate our priorities (see Figure 2).

Performance reporting

Details of our performance against our Portfolio Budget Statement performance criteria and Corporate Plan success measures are in our Annual Performance Statement in Chapter 2.

We began collecting baseline data this year and expect to be able to report on trends in coming years. We will continue to demonstrate our performance delivering against the government’s priorities by measuring, and clearly aligning our Portfolio Budget Statement, Corporate Plan and the activities of our people.
