The Department's Strategic Plan 2023-26 - Leading a Connected WA Government lays the foundation for how DPC will work across government to deliver a brighter future for Western Australians.
In developing this plan post the COVID-19 pandemic, we acknowledge the opportunities that come from the belief in our teams to adapt as we learn and to seek solutions by doing things differently. The plan incorporates these learnings and celebrates our leadership and strength across all our areas of service delivery.
Our vision: A connected government that delivers a brighter future for Western Australians
Our role: We provide trusted policy advice, foster effective partnerships and deliver high quality strategic services to achieve whole-of-Government priorities.
Our values: Leadership, Connection, Impact

About the ArtworkShow more
At the bottom of the artwork is a large circle, representing the Department of the Premier and Cabinet. This is directly connected to three smaller circles, each representing one of the Department’s new values: Leadership, Connection and Impact.
These values will underpin our work at the Department and throughout the public sector. The artwork also features many of the natural landmarks found in Perth. To the left of the DPC circle sits Katta Morda, the Darling Ranges. Katta Morda is the Waugal, or Rainbow Serpent, who created the landscape and waterways with her body. She now lies as the border between the Whadjuk Noongar and Ballardong country.
To the right of DPC is Kaarta Garta (Kings Park). Running through the middle of the artwork are Derbal Yerrigan (Swan River) and Djarlgarro Beelier (Canning River). They were extremely important to the Whadjuk people, providing them with water, food, and other important resources. At the top right is another large meeting circle.
These represent the people who work at DPC, behind the scenes every single day serving the people of Western Australia. They are vital to the work of our organisation and the running of our State.
The blue circles to the left of this group of people are the watering holes and pools that provide us with the precious water we need to survive. Surrounding these two elements is a line of concentric circles. These are song lines and they represent the Department’s story and pathway from where we are to where we are going.
