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 funds; and
  • to measure and assess agency and programme non‑financial performance in contributing to Government policy objectives.

Commonwealth agencies within the GGS have at least one Outcome statement.
