Overview of the performance framework
The department had two planned outcomes and 15 programmes in 2014–15, as set out in Table 1. There were no changes to this structure during the year.
Our divisions worked individually and together to deliver planned outcomes. Our corporate divisions contributed to departmental performance and support for the minister and parliamentary secretary through enabling activities, which are reported on in Part 4: Management and accountability.
