About us

Our vision is for inclusive economic recovery in Queensland, which delivers increased productivity, regional growth and resilience, and community well-being.


Treasury’s strength in fulfilling our vision is drawn from the public service values of:

  • customers first
  • ideas into action
  • unleash potential
  • be courageous
  • empower people.

These values are the foundation for Treasury’s business of providing trusted, impartial and influential advice for the economy and state finances.


As a central agency established in 1859, Treasury leverages a government-wide perspective to provide advice and services to clients, and partners with agencies for better outcomes in the economy and state finances, revenue, commercial services, planning, infrastructure and economic resilience.

Information and records management

Treasury continues its commitment to quality information and records management within an embedded information security management system to mitigate Treasury’s cyber security risk profile. Treasury strives to meet the challenge of evolving technologies, the rise of large, complex data sets and its obligations under the Public Records Act 2002, the Financial and Performance Management Standard 2019 and the whole-of-government record governance policy and guidelines.

Machinery of government changes

On 11 May 2020, the Planning and Economic and Infrastructure Strategy functions of the former Department of State Development, Manufacturing, Infrastructure and Planning were transferred to Queensland Treasury. With the combined skills and expertise of the new Treasury portfolio, Treasury is well positioned to lead the Queensland Government’s economic response to COVID-19.
