The Ministry’s strategic outcomes framework

To manage the future pressures and issues confronting the transport sector, the Ministry and the transport Crown entities have a shared sector objective and four long-term outcomes. These have been incorporated into a strategic outcomes framework. The framework sets out the outcomes that we believe are most important to New Zealand’s transport system. We aim to progress towards these long-term outcomes through effective delivery in our intermediate result areas.

The Ministry reviewed its intermediate outcomes in 2014 to ensure that it is focused on the areas where it can make the greatest contribution to the Government’s goals. The four new intermediate result areas are shown in the framework below.
