Part 4 - Our capability and accountability

Our organisational capability is the combination of our people, culture, governance principles, processes, systems and knowledge. By having strong capability, we ensure we can deliver on priorities for the Australian Government and the community.

In November 2016, the Department launched the Organisational Capability Vision as an initiative following the Australian Public Service Commission capability review. The Organisational Capability Vision commits the Department to an ongoing process of aligning and refining our capabilities with a focus on four priority areas.

Our capability is an important part of delivering on our Strategic Plan. The Strategic Plan illustrates how the Department will deliver, how we will work together and how we build our own departmental culture. The Organisational Capability Vision describes how we are positioning ourselves to grow our capability and extend our thinking established by the Strategic Plan. We need to grow and develop our capabilities to ensure we continue delivering to a high standard in the future.
