Each year our Ministers set out their expectations for us, and our Board sets Key Performance Indicators (KPIs) for our Chief Executive.
The annual Letter of Expectations from our Ministers sets out Government-wide priorities, high-level priorities for the EPA, and operational expectations.
The letter informs our Statement of Performance Expectations, which is one of our key accountability documents. We also receive an Enduring Letter of Expectations from the Minister of Finance and the Minister of State Services, which is sent to all Crown entities, and sets out the Government’s vision and approach.
Our vision and strategy are explained in our Statement of Intent which sets out our strategic objectives and outlines what we want to achieve for New Zealanders and the New Zealand environment, and how we propose to do this work.
Our Statement of Performance Expectations (SPE) sets out what we will achieve over the forthcoming year, including performance measures. It complements our Statement of Intent which sets out our strategic intentions.
