The Department of Finance plays an important role as a key central agency in the Australian Government. Finance helps the Government achieve its objectives by contributing to three key outcomes.
Outcome 1 – Support sustainable Australian Government finances through providing high quality policy advice and operational support to the Government and Commonwealth entities to maintain effective and efficient use of public resources.
Outcome 2 – Support an efficient and high-performing public sector through providing leadership to Commonwealth entities in ongoing improvement to public sector governance, including through systems, frameworks, policy, advice and service delivery.
Outcome 3 – Support for Parliamentarians and others as required by the Australian Government through the delivery of, and advice on, entitlements and targeted assistance.
