Our Department provides policy advice to the Ministers and Parliamentary Secretary for the Transport and Regional Services portfolio and delivers a variety of programs on behalf of the Commonwealth Government.

We also conduct research, analysis and safety investigations; provide safety information and advice based upon these investigations; and perform regulatory functions. We have a strong policy development role, together with program administration and service delivery responsibilities. We endeavour to involve key stakeholders, clients and customers in all stages of our work.
