We provide numerous services to the Queensland community.

Our governance committees, drive improvements through their key responsibilities as committee members, as well as ensure transparency and accountability of the department.
We operate within a corporate governance framework. This emphasises ethics, openness and public accountability. It is the basis for our overall purpose and sets our objectives. It also guides us in managing our information and resources.
We have a large number of policies, procedures, guidelines and rules that govern the way we work.
