    About the Department

    DPC is determined to lead the best public sector in Australia: efficient, modern and service-orientated. DPC's objectives are to:

    • Provide the Premier and Cabinet with independent, rigorous and forward-looking policy advice
    • Lead a resilient, innovative public sector
    • Develop organisational capability and agility
    • Develop a long-term strategic vision for Queensland.

    DPC's clients are the Premier, Cabinet, government Ministers, agencies and the community. As a central agency in the Queensland Public Service, we work closely with all other agencies to drive the government's key strategies and plans from conception through to implementation.

    The department is committed to maintaining an ethical workplace and delivering the government's goal of being the most responsive and respected public service in the nation. To enable the achievement of this goal the public service has five organisational values which are a key part of the government's broader renewal agenda and will drive the way we work. Our values are: customers first, ideas into action, unleash potential, be courageous and empower people.

    DPC currently employs approximately 440 staff, all within the Brisbane CBD, and as at December 2013, 1.43% of our staff identified as having disability.
