    About the department

    The Department of the Premier and Cabinet (DPC) is the Queensland Government’s lead agency, dedicated to serving the Premier and Cabinet, developing well researched policy and facilitating the delivery of the government’s priorities for the benefit of all Queenslanders.

    Since 1859, DPC as the Queensland Government’s lead agency has administered and managed the government’s key priorities and responsibilities. We lead with integrity, transparency and accountability in the Westminster tradition.

    We provide whole-of-government leadership, advice and resolution, operating in an environment that is open, transparent and accountable. Our unique position enables us to successfully harness the collective strength of government, industry and the community.

    Through collaborative relationships with internal and external government agencies, DPC is equipped to provide considered strategic support that drives the policy agenda and delivers the best outcomes for Queenslanders.

    DPC keeps a whole-of-government line of sight when addressing issues—clearing the path for new ideas and igniting passion and energy. Ideas need to be developed in consultation and DPC will keep looking to and drawing on the expertise of other agencies, the private sector and academia to tackle the hard issues and find innovative solutions.

    We measure our success as part of our ongoing commitment to continuous improvement. Results and feedback establish baselines and present evidence on areas that DPC should concentrate on improving to increase confidence.

    In 2015–16, we again surveyed our key stakeholders—Ministers, Directors-General, Cabinet Legislation and Liaison Officers and Senior Policy Officers—to obtain feedback on DPC’s service delivery.

    Ministers indicated a 100 per cent level of satisfaction with the overall level of engagement by DPC, and Directors-General, Cabinet Legislation and Liaison Officers and Senior Policy Officers indicated an 88 per cent level of satisfaction.

    Further information on results relating to specific services are included throughout this report.
