|The accountable authority of a Commonwealth entity must prepare a corporate plan for the entity at least once each reporting period.|
|The corporate plan must be published on the entity’s website by the last day of the second month of the reporting period for which the plan is prepared, unless the entity's enabling legislation states a different period.|
|A copy of the entity's corporate plan must be given to the responsible Minister and the Finance Minister as soon as practicable after it is prepared and before it is published on the entity's website. To meet the requirement to give the corporate plan to the Finance Minister a copy of your corporate plan should be sent to the Department of Finance at PGPA@finance.gov.au. Entities do not need to send a copy of the corporate plan to the Office of the Finance Minister directly.|
