Be the Best. Lead the Way. Make a Difference.

Improve the well-being of Tasmanians by providing:
  • high quality advice to our Ministers;
  • best practice financial, regulatory and client services; and
  • leadership in economic and financial reform.

Our Values
Treasury is a values-based organisation and our decisions and behaviour are guided by the following values:
  • Integrity ... as it builds confidence, trust and self respect, and is the foundation of open and honest communication;
  • Excellence ... as it challenges us to give our best and brings us recognition;
  • Respect ... as it recognises the value of each of us and the contribution we all make;
  • Camaraderie ... as it creates a fun and supportive place to be, and
  • Passion ... as it inspires us to achieve great things.

Our Objectives
The objectives of the Department are as follows:
  • that our Ministers and other key stakeholders receive efficient and effective financial and resource management services;
  • that the Government receives sound and timely economic and fiscal policy advice; and
  • that statutory bodies receive high quality regulatory and revenue management services.

What we do
The Department of Treasury and Finance is responsible to both the Treasurer and the Minister for Finance. The Department has overall responsibility for implementing strategies to achieve the Government’s longer-term economic and financial objectives. It provides the Government with objective advice on the economic and financial management of the State, implements Government policy, performs financial analysis, monitoring and reporting functions on behalf of the Government and supports statutory bodies responsible for administering State revenue collection, the regulation of gaming and liquor, and the economic regulation of the electricity and water and sewerage sectors.
