The 2020-24 Defence Corporate Plan (PDF 3MB) has been developed in accordance with Public Governance, Performance and Accountability Act 2013 (PGPA Act) requirements.
It sets out Defence’s purpose (as defined by the PGPA Act) and the activities Defence will undertake during 2020-2024 to achieve the purpose and to manage enterprise risks. The plan covers four financial years and is updated at least annually or when there are significant changes to Defence’s environment or strategic direction.
The Corporate Plan also describes how Defence will build organisational capability to support our national security interests and promote them in a region that is growing more complex and dynamic, as described in the 2020 Defence Strategic Update. Defence will report against performance criteria in the 2020-2024 Defence Corporate Plan through annual performance statements to be included in the Defence Annual Report for 2020-2021.
