DVA Towards 2020 is the key planning document that sets out our future vision, directions and strategic approach.

This plan is set against the context of the budget process (including the PBS and Portfolio Additional Estimates Statements), which describes the allocation of resources from Government to DVA. The Annual Report advises on the activities and performance of the Department in relation to the PBS.

The plan is reinforced by supporting plans and strategies.  Divisional, Branch, Deputy Commissioner and Section business plans should be formulated using DVA Towards 2020, and should articulate what work areas will do to contribute to the achievement of DVA’s strategic directions and outcomes, and the way we will manage our people, resources and risks. Underlying all of these plans and strategies are performance agreements and individual development plans.
