  • Supporting performance - by being responsive to customers, by being efficient, effective and economic, and by maintaining a commitment to improving performance.   
  • Enabling transformation - by being strategic and customer-led, future-orientated, proactive in managing change and risk, and receptive to new ideas.

It provides the following key services:
