Following the Administrative Arrangements which commenced on 7 July 2014, the Chief Minister, Treasury and Economic Development Directorate has been formed. This website will be restructured to reflect this change and while this is occurring the Economic Development, Commerce and Works and Arts ACT sites will be maintained. We thank you for your patience.
CMTEDD leads the ACT Public Service (ACTPS) and provides strategic advice and support to the Chief Minister, Treasurer, Minister for Economic Development and the Cabinet on policy, financial and economic matters, service delivery and whole of government issues. The Directorate facilitates the implementation of government priorities and drives many new initiatives.
The Directorate is responsible for collecting and managing taxation revenue; managing the Government's financial assets and liabilities, including superannuation liabilities and investments; and providing advice to the Government and ACT agencies on the Territory's budget and financial management, economic and revenue policy, federal financial relations, and workers compensation policy. The Directorate is also responsible for Shared Services which provides financial, IT and HR support across Government.
The Economic Development focus is on land release, facilitating business development, investment, sport and recreation, tourism and events, arts, and other government activity, often in coordination with the private sector, to increase the economic performance of the ACT.
