The Australian Bureau of Statistics (ABS) has a long history of providing trusted official statistics to inform decisions on issues of importance to Australia. However, with an accelerating pace of change, the context in which we operate and expectations of the organisation are being redrawn.

To remain relevant and to capitalise on the opportunities of a dynamic information environment, the ABS will fundamentally transform across all aspects of the organisation. The recent Australian Government investment of $257 million to modernise our infrastructure over the next five years provides the foundation for the ABS to transform for the future.

This plan articulates organisational objectives and strategic priorities in a transformation context. It highlights the ambidextrous nature of the ABS, recognising that we need to continue delivering high quality and timely official statistics, while innovating to take advantage of new information opportunities, strengthening our partnerships, and driving high performance.

As the accountable authority of the ABS, I am pleased to present the Australian Bureau of Statistics 2015-19 Corporate Plan1.

David W. Kalisch
Australian Statistician
