Appendix A: Agency Outcome Statements
This appendix provides the Outcomes managed by each agency. It assists understanding Table 1.1.
Outcome statements articulate Government objectives and serve three main purposes:
- to explain the purposes for which annual appropriations are approved by the Parliament for use by Commonwealth entities;
- to provide a basis for budgeting and reporting against the use of appropriated funds; and
- to measure and assess agency and program non‑financial performance in contributing to Government policy objectives.
All Commonwealth agencies within the General Government Sector have at least one outcome statement.
