AUSTRAC’s 2015–19 corporate plan describes our focus areas that will enable us to better meet the expectations of our Government, industry partners, and the broader Australian community.
The plan includes a statement of our vision, and lists the priorities and initiatives that will enable us to achieve our strategic direction.
This corporate plan has been prepared under subsection 35(1)(b) of the Public Governance, Performance and Accountability Act 2013 and in accordance with the Public Governance, Performance and Accountability Rule 2014. It is prepared for the reporting period 2015–16, and covers 2015–16 to 2018–19.
The nine performance objectives and associated measures included in this plan cover the deliverables we produce, and the outcomes we achieve. This first corporate plan will be used as a baseline year for performance measures. These measures are not intended to remain static, and will be progressively enhanced and refined over future years.
We will enhance our measures by adding targets and new indicators as and where appropriate to ensure they continue to support our strategic direction, our changing environment and our operating model. Our business capability plans and individual performance and development agreements will support this plan and create a line of sight ensuring everyone in the organisation can see how their efforts contribute to the achievement of our strategic direction.
AUSTRAC will report on this plan in our 2015-16 annual performance statement which will be included in our annual report and through regular performance reporting into our internal executive committees.
Lastly, AUSTRAC's corporate plan reflects my organisation's unequivocal understanding that we have a critical role in keeping our nation and its citizens safe from the scourge of organised crime and terrorism financing. We take this responsibility seriously and will always ensure that everything we do is focused on serving Australia’s national interests.
