The ASC Corporate Plan 2016–20 has now been approved by Minister for Sport the Hon. Sussan Ley MP and tabled in Parliament.

The ASC Corporate Plan 2016–20 replaces the ASC Corporate Plan 2015–19 and the ASC 2015–16 Annual Operational Plan.

The document includes seven strategic priorities the ASC Board has determined will position Australian sport and the ASC better for the future. These priorities are:

  1. Governance reform
  2. Increasing funding for sport through a national sport lottery
  3. National Institute Network reform
  4. Education and sport
  5. AIS/Australia’s Winning Edge Future Directions
  6. Sports infrastructure
  7. Technology in sport.

These strategic projects set the scene for the ASC’s operations for the year ahead, and will further inform future strategies and operations across four strategic pillars first introduced in the Corporate Plan 2015–19:

  • WIN: international success
  • PLAY: More participation
  • THRIVE: Sustainable sports
  • PERFORM: Organisational excellence.

Specific detail concerning 2016–17 priority activities and performance information which would have previously been published in an annual operational plan is included in the latest corporate plan.

The ASC’s Corporate Plan has become a rolling four-year plan, to be updated and published annually in accordance with Public Governance, Performance and Accountability legislative requirements.

This means rather than publishing a corporate plan every four years and an annual operational plan each year, the corporate plan will be updated annually.

The plan is the result of ASC planning sessions and consultations in early 2016, with the ASC Board approving the plan at its June 2016 meeting.
