An integrated approach
Our Corporate Plan 2016–17 to 2019–20 outlines how we are going to achieve our purpose and work towards our vision of being Australia’s living archive – relevant, engaged and accessible. To deliver against our purpose and achieve our vision, we set five strategic priorities in the plan:
1. A ‘living’ archive – for everyone
2. Collecting and preserving
3. Developing leadership in the digital environment
4. Indigenous connections
5. Maximising our resources
Our Corporate Plan is the NFSA’s primary planning and reporting document. It was developed and published in accordance with the requirements of Section 35 of the Public Governance, Performance and Accountability Act 2013 (the PGPA Act).
In the plan there is a comprehensive range of both qualitative and quantitative performance measures to enable a holistic assessment of our outcomes and impact. The NFSA’s Corporate Plan 2016–17 to 2019–20 was integrated with our business planning processes and we have systems in place to regularly monitor and report on our progress and achievements against the plan.
Our five strategic priorities and a selection of key performance criteria described in our Corporate Plan are integrated into our Portfolio Budget Statements (PBS). Our PBS also included key performance indicators set by the Department of Communications and the Arts.
