Statement of Intent 2013 - 2016

Operating Intentions

Reducing Long-term Welfare Dependency

Boosting Skills and Employment

Supporting Vulnerable Children

Reducing Crime

Improving Interaction with Government

Linking it all together

The Government has laid down a challenge to the public sector in four key priorities. The first – Delivering Better Public Services – has 10 specific result areas to measure against. We have a major role to play in delivering these results. We co-ordinate the cross-agency effort to achieve four of these result areas and we directly contribute to another four.

To ensure our direction is clear, our outcomes framework reflects the priority of Delivering Better Public Services. This means we can link our goals and resources directly to the Government Priorities and clearly track our progress.
