Secretary’s video description

Welcome to Finance’s annual report 2015-16. 

This report marks the end of the first full year of the enhanced Commonwealth Performance Framework and includes, for the first time, annual performance statements against our Corporate Plan and Portfolio Budget Statements.

This framework is helping drive positive change across the public service and is also reflected in our re-designed, concise reporting of activities in 2015–16.

A new feature of the report this year is the showcase of our delivery of a range projects.

These case studies reflect the quality of the department’s work to deliver effective and efficient programs to the Australian community.

The department continues to focus on transformation, for both itself and the public service as a whole, building a highly mobile and agile workforce committed to the efficient delivery of services, policies and programs to our community.

This will be my final annual report for the Australian Public Service and I’m confident this department is in great shape to continue the tradition of service into the future.

The department’s commitment to making a difference supported by the breadth of backgrounds and experience of its staff enables all of you to deliver excellence and value in the business of government.

I have been privileged to enjoy a career that’s given me great pride in the valuable work we do as public servants. This work is highlighted so well in this annual report.
