This flowchart shows the connections between components of ABS Enterprise Planning Framework. At the top of the flowchart sits the Portfolio Budget Statement, ABS Legislation and Statement of Expectations of the ABS. These components inform the ABS’ purpose and in turn this purpose shapes the ABS Corporate Plan. The Corporate Plan comprises the following elements: objectives, key activities, performance information, operating context and strategic directions. The objectives, key activities and performance information inform the ABS’ Forward Work Program and its operational plans. The operating context and strategic directions also inform ABS’ operational plans. The Corporate Plan, Forward Work Program and operational plans are supported by the following ABS enabling strategies: Finance Strategy, Data Strategy, Workforce Strategy, Customer Experience and Channel Strategy and Information and Communications Technology Strategy. The framework is reinforced with effective governance and assurance.
