Chief Executive Officer's Message

I am pleased, in my capacity as the Chief Executive Officer of the Federal Court of Australia (the accountable authority), to present our four year Corporate Plan as required under paragraph 35(1)(a) of the Public Governance, Performance and Accountability Act 2013. The plan is prepared in accordance with the Public Governance, Performance and Accountability Rule 2014.

This Corporate Plan covers the reporting periods 2016–17 to 2019–20. The plan outlines the strategic direction, challenges and priorities for the Federal Court of Australia, the Family Court of Australia, the Federal Circuit Court of Australia, the National Native Title Tribunal and Corporate Services.

This is an important document which focuses our planning of future work and how to achieve our goals. We operate in dynamic environments so this plan will be reviewed each year, allowing us to continue to refine and adapt our efforts.

I look forward to working closely with each court and the National Native Title Tribunal to implement the plan for the benefit of all Australians.
