Over the next four years we will improve the way we do business, our systems and processes, and equip our staff to be resilient and outcome-oriented.

Over the next four years, we will invest in three capability areas and build on existing activities as follows:

  1. People and innovation science capability to build resilence in our people and be outcome-oriented.
  2. Facilities and physical infrastructure capability to deliver new infrastructure.
  3. Cyber-system and technology capability to secure our systems and processes, and support innovation.

Current and future capabilities by area.

In order to deliver on our purpose, we need to support our people through development opportunities, develop the next generation of scientists and attract new talent to secure our future success. We estimate our staffing levels over the next four years as follows:
