DPMC Four Year Plan 2015/16 –2019/20
Final as at December 2015

Strategic Intentions

The Four Year Plan is intended to be read in conjunction with our refreshed Strategic Intentions.

The refreshed Strategic Intentions were endorsed by the Prime Minister and our Portfolio Ministers, and published in October 2015. Refer to Annex four for a copy which sets out:

  • Our high level strategic direction for the next four years and how our strategy fits together to support the Government's priorities and the role of CERA as a departmental agency
  • What the department is aiming to achieve between September 2015 and the end of 2018/19
  • The six areas where our work will enable us to achieve our longer-term outcomes, and
  • Our strategic focus areas, which frame our work programme and help to focus our efforts on what really matters and go beyond "business as usual”, including managing significant one-off projects.

Government’s priorities

The Strategic Intentions support Government’s four priorities:

  • Responsibly manage the Government’s finances
  • Build a more competitive and productive economy
  • Build better public services that all New Zealanders can rely on
  • Rebuild Greater Christchurch 

DPMC’s outcomes framework

As part of the Strategic Intentions refresh we updated our outcomes framework, which sets out how we will organise and direct our efforts in order to achieve the desired results.

DPMC in four years’ time

DPMC will be viewed as an exemplar of outstanding executive and policy leadership. We will be trusted to lead and manage Government priorities, and to produce innovative policy advice. By building resilience, coordinating the Greater Christchurch regeneration, and driving recovery from crises, DPMC will contribute to a more confident and secure New Zealand.

We will have successfully built our systems and structures and developed further capability at a corporate level to ensure we are able to respond to a wide range of issues and challenges to support the Government of the day.

We will work constructively and cohesively with our central agencies colleagues and other departments to achieve the Government’s priorities.

What does success look like?

Our strategic intentions outline what success will look like in four years’ time.
