The Department of the Prime Minister and Cabinet (PM&C) supports the Government to deliver sustainable economic growth and job creation, which improves the lives of Australians and helps individuals, families and communities. PM&C achieves this by providing the Prime Minister, the Cabinet, portfolio ministers and assistant ministers with high-quality advice about policy choices and trade-offs in the context of evolving domestic, international and national security priorities.
They also work with other Commonwealth agencies to ensure policy proposals are informed by a rigorous evidence base and high-quality impact analysis. PM&C also supports the implementation of the Government’s agenda by monitoring and reporting to the Prime Minister, portfolio ministers and assistant ministers on the progress of key priorities.
