    The priorities focus on the tough challenges facing our state that require complex and innovative solutions. There are 13 priority targets identified to support the six priorities.

    DPC has led the whole-of-government implementation of priorities and has overseen and coordinated a collaborative governance model underpinning their delivery, as well as a range of communication, monitoring and reporting processes. The department works collaboratively with Deputy Director-General groups and Ministerial groups for each of the six priorities.

    The department also directly contributes to the delivery of the government priorities. It has led work to integrate and coordinate activities across the six priorities and monitor the implementation of actions that will support the delivery of the priority targets.

    DPC has also played a key communication role ensuring Queenslanders can see the progress the government is making on the priorities and its targets through the website
