The Organisation

Organisational Structure | Industrial Relations Contact | General Contact Details

Treasury is a central agency of the Government. It provides strategic financial and economic policy advice and services to the ACT Government with the aim of improving the Territory's financial position and economic management.

Treasury plays a leading role in promoting accountability and transparency in the delivery of services to the community and the management of resources. This is achieved through sound financial policies, best management practices, robust analysis, and effective input into major change initiatives across the ACT Public Service.

Treasury's mission is to inform ACT Government decisions by providing the best advice and implementing those decisions to achieve the highest benefit for our community through the effective and efficient allocation and utilisation of Territory resources.

We aim to ensure that the ACT will be financially and economically viable to provide for the Territory's sustainable growth and development and the well-being of its people. This is achieved by:

  • providing policy and strategic advice to the Treasurer and the Government;
  • developing the Government's budget;
  • ensuring that the economic interests of the ACT and its residents are protected and maximised;
  • ensuring sound intergovernmental financial relations;
  • providing and maintaining the financial management framework;
  • collecting tax revenue;
  • managing the investment and borrowing activities of the ACT Government; and
  • managing superannuation liabilities and investments.

In addition to its traditional treasury functions, the Treasury provides a number of key
cross-government services through:

  • InTACT, the ACT Government's IT infrastructure services provider;
  • ACT Procurement Solutions, the ACT Government's provider for tendering services, risk management, and infrastructure procurement services; and
  • other specialist agencies within the Treasury portfolio including the Gambling and Racing Commission and the Land Development Agency.
