2.1: Outcomes and performance information

Outcomes are the intended results, impacts or consequences of actions by the Australian Government on the Australian community. Programmes are the primary vehicle by which government entities achieve the intended results of their outcome statements. Entities are required to identify the programmes which contribute to Australian Government outcomes over the Budget and forward years.

Figure 2.1 summarises the relationship between AMSA's outcome statement, its programme and subprogrammes and the involvement of its divisions in delivering each subprogramme.

Outcome 1 Strategy

AMSA contributes to one Outcome and one Programme, which is divided into two subprogrammes:

Subprogramme 1.1.1: Seafarer and ship safety and environment protection aims to achieve the first part of AMSA's Outcome: Minimising the risk of shipping incidents and pollution in Australian waters through ship safety and environment protection regulation and services.

Subprogramme 1.1.2: Search and rescue aims to achieve the second part of AMSA's Outcome: Maximising the number of people saved from maritime and aviation incidents through search and rescue coordination.

AMSA will contribute to improved ship safety, protection of the marine environment and provision of search and rescue coordination services by implementing the major elements outlined in its Corporate Plan 2014‑18.
