The Treasury seeks to add value to the Government decision-making process by ensuring that Treasury ministers, and through them the Cabinet, are well informed about the policy choices made, and by assisting with administrative responsibilities and implementation of Government decisions. Agencies within the Treasury portfolio such as the Australian Taxation Office have specific responsibilities. Advice in relation to activities of portfolio agencies is generally directed through the Treasury. There are also a range of advisory bodies that contribute to policy and administrative processes within the Treasury portfolio. For example, the Board of Taxation, the Commonwealth Consumer Affairs Advisory Council and the Financial Sector Advisory Council.

T R E AS UR Y M IS S ION
The Treasury’s mission is to improve the wellbeing of the Australian people by providing sound and timely advice to the Government, based on objective and thorough analysis of options, and by assisting Treasury ministers in the administration of their responsibilities and the implementation of Government decisions.

T R E AS UR Y P OL IC Y O UT C OME
In carrying out its mission, Treasury seeks to promote informed decisions on the development and implementation of policies to improve the wellbeing of the Australian people, including by achieving strong, sustainable economic growth, through the provision of advice to government and the efficient administration of federal financial relations. Treasury has four policy groups – Fiscal, Macroeconomic, Markets and Revenue – and two support and operational areas – Corporate Services Group and the Policy Coordination and Governance Unit.

The Executive Board
Treasury’s Executive Board comprises the Secretary, six Executive Directors and the Group General Manager, Corporate Services Group. The Executive Board considers high level policy issues relating to the strategic leadership and management of the department. The Executive Board members are: • • • • • • Dr Ken Henry, Secretary; Mr Michael Callaghan, Executive Director, Macroeconomic Group (International Special Envoy); Ms Deidre Gerathy, Group General Manager, Corporate Services Group; Dr David Gruen, Executive Director, Macroeconomic Group (Domestic); Mr Jim Murphy, Executive Director, Markets Group; Mr Richard Murray, Executive Director, Corporate Services Group and Policy Coordination and Governance Unit; Mr David Parker, Executive Director, Revenue Group; and Mr Nigel Ray, Executive Director, Fiscal Group.

• •

The Executive Board generally meets weekly to discuss current issues and more frequently when circumstances require. Monthly meetings are held to consider organisational and policy strategy issues. The Board is supported by an Audit Committee chaired by one of the Executive Directors.

The Treasury Management Model
The Treasury Management Model establishes Treasury’s people values, arrangements for performance management and career development, and principles for organisational and management arrangements. The Treasury Management Model sets out the role accountabilities of the five levels of the management structure. Treasury’s management levels and primary role accountabilities are: • • • • • Secretary: accountable for the department’s management and strategic leadership; Executive Director: accountable for a group’s management and strategic leadership; General Manager: accountable for a division’s management and strategic leadership; Manager: accountable for a unit’s management and leadership; and Adviser and Analyst: accountable for provision of technical expertise, team leadership and contribution to unit outputs.

Essentially, sign-off accountability for most policy briefings rests with the manager. More complex policy briefings to the Treasury ministers may be signed off at higher levels.

Policy advice and briefing

AND

M INIS T E R S

Treasury provides advice at the request of Treasury ministers or their offices. Briefing is also provided by the department when issues and events need to be brought to the attention of a minister and for matters going before Cabinet and related processes. Treasury senior executives may meet with portfolio ministers regularly to discuss policy matters that are before ministers. As appropriate, General Managers meet with ministers to provide oral briefings on high priority issues with the purpose of reaching key/urgent decisions. This is in accordance with the Treasury Management Model which sets out the roles and accountabilities for all staff in Treasury. General Managers and Managers are accountable for the provision of policy advice to ministers and to senior staff on the high-level matters covered by the division. The contact details for Treasury’s senior management are in Part A on page 5.

Routine policy advice, briefing for meetings and speech notes
Any request for briefing should be sent using the briefing request proforma accessed through Word templates>Ministerials and emailed to BriefingRequests@treasury.gov.au. Adequate time for research and preparation should be allowed. It is desirable that as much direction as possible on the nature of the briefing required is provided. It is also desirable that for more complex matters, ministers’ office staff discuss requirements with divisional general managers.

Managing emerging issues
The Policy Coordination and Governance Unit assists in actioning significant portfolio issues that traverse policy groups, and provides an interface with ministers’ offices. The Unit provides an immediate point of contact for issues that require a timely or coordinated approach across the department, where a responsible division is not immediately evident. The Unit can also assist ministerial staffers in developing their departmental networks and key contacts. Contact: Policy Coordination Governance Unit, Unit Manager Simone Abbot on 6263 3816.

Ministerial correspondence — coloured folder system
Material is sent to Treasury ministers in coloured plastic folders indicating relative priority.

Question Time Briefing
One week before the commencement of each sitting of Parliament, the department provides a set of briefings to Treasury ministers on matters likely to be raised during Question Time.

A briefing folder is sent to the Treasury ministers and the ministers representing the portfolio in the Senate at the beginning of each sitting of Parliament. During a sitting week daily updates are sent to each office electronically and are also available on the intranet and Q drive. The name and telephone number of a contact officer in the relevant division is included at the foot of each briefing.
