Corporate Governance

Finance is a central agency within the Australian Public Service (APS) and plays a role in many key policy and programme issues.

As a department that is committed to efficient and effective operations, and meeting the highest ethical standards, Finance adheres to the APS Values and APS Code of Conduct and reinforces this commitment through the Finance values and leadership behaviours.

Corporate governance in Finance focusses on providing a streamlined decision-making framework to encourage a professional operating environment and responsiveness to government, while ensuring that high accountability standards are met.
