Our Statement of Strategy defines the department’s
mandate, mission and strategies for a 3 year period. It sets the key outcomes
and indicators that the department will use to measure its performance. It also
outlines how the department and its agencies will meet obligations under international
Areas the department is responsible for are diverse, including the Communications,
Climate Action, Environment, energy and Natural Resources sectors. The
department is also responsible for 18 commercial, non-commercial and regulatory
agencies. These sectors and agencies undergo substantial and rapid change. Our
Statement of Strategy ensures we actively respond to that change.
Objectives and strategies must evolve as circumstances change, therefore the
Statement of Strategy itself is a dynamic document. However, despite its
dynamic nature, it acts as a benchmark of the objectives, strategies and target
outcomes of the department.
