The Plan sets out the actions required on an annual basis for successful implementation of our Strategy 2020.

The Corporate Plan 2016-17 meets the requirements of s35 (1) (a) of the Public Governance, Performance and Accountability Act 2013.

Cover of the 2016-17 Corporate Plan shows a young boy on a swing; and included the text 'We imagine, we collaborate, we innovate, Corporate Plan 2016-17'.

At CSIRO, we do the extraordinary every day—We imagine, we collaborate, we innovate.

It sets out the:

  • strategies CSIRO proposes to pursue
  • activities CSIRO proposes to carry out
  • resources CSIRO proposes to allocate to these activities
  • environment and context in which CSIRO operates and
  • monitoring and review processes to inform decision making and evaluate progress in implementing the strategy.

In fulfilling the above compliance requirements, the Corporate Plan 2016-17 is also aligned with the CSIRO outcome statement, programs and performance information presented in the CSIRO Portfolio Budget Statement for 2016-17.

The CSIRO Corporate Plan replaces the CSIRO Operational Plan.
