The Department of Finance continues to be a central government agency providing strategic advice, leadership and cost-effective services to our customers.

We are an agency that delivers a wide variety of services to our customers. Put simply, we advise, build, buy and collect.

This year we have advised government and our agency counterparts on whole-of-government reform initiatives, including leading the Enhance Public Sector Procurement reform initiative. A framework has been developed with an intent to make it easier for suppliers and contractors to do business with government and reduce the confusion experienced by public sector employees in procuring goods, services and works.

I joined as Director General in August 2018 enthusiastic about enhancing Finance’s role within the public sector and becoming functional leaders in delivering the whole-of-government targets.

Jodi Cant - Director General

Finance is a strategic adviser to the WA Government, and government departments and agencies. We are central in providing advice on government reform projects, project management, procurement and policy.

Finance oversees the development and maintenance of major and other non-residential building assets including the new Museum project plus several school, health facility and prison projects. We also manage government office accommodation to drive efficiencies and savings to the WA taxpayer.

We are leaders in government procurement. We leverage our buying power to secure lower-cost products and services across government and apply our expertise to deliver
value-for-money to the WA taxpayer.

Finance collects around $7 billion of revenue annually on behalf of government and administers the payment of grants and subsidies to the community.
