2018-19 Defence Corporate Plan

Department of Defence

The 2018–19 Defence Corporate Plan sets out Defence’s role, objectives and functions and describes how we will measure our performance in achieving our Purposes. Performance against the Corporate Plan will be reported through annual performance statements, to be included in the Defence Annual Report for 2018–19. The Corporate Plan is a living document and will be updated at least annually to reflect changes in our operating environment and to meet the requirements of the PGPA Act.
The Defence Corporate Plan focuses on the two outcomes we deliver for Government : 
• Defend Australia and its national interests through the conduct of operations and provision of support for the Australian community and civilian authorities in accordance with Government direction; and 
• Protect and advance Australia’s strategic interests through the provision of strategic policy, the development, delivery and sustainment of military, intelligence and enabling capabilities, and the promotion of regional and global security and stability as directed by Government.
