Our strategic intentions provide an overview of how we will deliver on our vision to lead the Public Service to:

  • achieve outcomes for New Zealanders – real tangible improvements in the lives of individuals, whānau, and communities
  • improve services to New Zealanders and New Zealand businesses by organising around New Zealanders’ need rather than agency function
  • ensure that the public sees government agencies, and the Public Service as a whole, as an integral part of society and legitimate in its exercise of authority.

This information has been prepared in accordance with section 38 and section 40 of the Public Finance Act 1989.

Presented to the House of Representatives pursuant to Section 39 of the Public Finance Act 1989.
