Statements of Intent (government departments)

About reporting requirements of strategic intentions of government departments

Sections 38–41 of the Public Finance Act 1989 set out the legislation regarding reporting requirements for information on the strategic intentions of government departments. The table below houses the Statement of Intent of each government department, as well as their annual reports. We consider there to be benefit in collating these all together – ideally this could be something the Public Service Commission might consider. In the meantime, we thought it would be useful to share our list.

Section 43 of the Public Finance Act 1989 sets out the legislation regarding reporting requirements for the annual reports of government departments.
