Partnering for service delivery
Treasury’s role is to support line agency performance and public policy development by:
- providing economic and fiscally responsible public policy analysis and advice to agencies to support government priorities
- partnering with agencies to optimise performance, balancing service delivery within budget parameters
- managing and coordinating intergovernmental financial relations issues managing whole-of-government banking and payment services contracts.
Key issues in our environment
Treasury’s operating environment is influenced significantly by decision making and negotiations in the national arena on funding for key sectors of the economy. Population growth, demographic change and technological developments all also affect communities’ infrastructure and service delivery needs.
Treasury plays a key partnering role in delivering the Queensland Government priority of reducing emissions and increasing the take-up of renewable energy. This will involve working with the Department of Environment and Science and other agencies to develop a Green Paper on climate change for public consultation, outlining a range of options for responding to this issue.
Feedback on the Green Paper will be used to develop a White Paper, setting out the optimal path to achieving the objectives.
