Our activity in 2016–17 will be driven by our corporate plan, which has three levels – our three-year strategic plan, annual branch business plans and staff performance agreements. Each level supports the Audit Office’s vision and mission, and has the same four key result areas and accompanying goals:
Our quality products and services have impact, relevance and value.
Systems and Processes
Our contemporary systems and processes are integrated, efficient and fit for purpose.
People and Culture
Our people are engaged, confident, capable and adaptable, working together in a constructive environment.
Our financial frameworks are fiscally responsible, future-focused and ensure our sustainability.
Our Leadership Team, made up of the Office Executive and leaders from Financial Audit, Performance Audit and Corporate Services, work together to develop clear goals, strategic initiatives and targets for the Audit Office.
The strategic plan, branch business plans and staff performance agreements include their own set of indicators to measure progress. These indicators connect to create a set of measures that track performance across the Audit Office. Improvement initiatives are also included at all levels – recognising that all levels of the organisation need to contribute to achieving the Audit Office’s vision.
Our Financial Audit, Performance Audit and Corporate Services branches each have a business plan which is aligned to the overall strategic goals of the organisation.

We have set four new strategic initiatives that focus on areas of particular importance to achieving our goals.
