  • use the Capability Map and Performance Development Scheme to align individual, team and departmental goals and ensure they are met;
  • provide people with the systems, tools and information needed to achieve these goals;
  • promote the Australian Public Service Values and Code of Conduct;
  • follow Australian Government financial management policies, and the Department’s Chief Executive Instructions and Procedural Rules;
  • anticipate opportunities and what might go wrong, and manage risk;
  • evaluate our progress to measure our success; and
