Annual Report 2005-06: Performance framework
- CASA's performance framework
- Goals, performance measures, objectives and strategies
- Output cost attribution
CASA measures its performance using performance indicators set out in:
- the Portfolio Budget Statements for the Transport and Regional Services portfolio (see Figure 7)
- the CASA Corporate Plan 2005–06 to 2007–08 (see Figure 8).
CASA contributes to the portfolio outcome by delivering our vision of safe skies for all. We assess our overall effectiveness at this level using the eight overall effectiveness indicators set out in the Portfolio Budget Statements.
Our contribution is structured under four groups of outputs:
- Aviation Safety Standards
- Aviation Safety Compliance
- Aviation Safety Promotion
- Aviation Regulatory Services.
The Portfolio Budget Statements set out 17 strategic objectives for 2005–06, each with one or more performance measures. Not all the strategic objectives relate to all four outputs.
The corporate plan, which translates the framework in the Portfolio Budget Statements into a rolling three-year work plan, is structured around four goals, each with one or more overall performance measures:
|Improved aviation safety performance||Reducing trend in number of accidents per hours flown by industry sector|
|Reducing trend in number of incidents per hours flown by industry sector|
|High level of public confidence in aviation safety||Public confidence in aviation safety as measured by annual survey|
|A world-class regulator||Annual survey of key industry representatives to benchmark CASA’s standing with the industry|
|A high-performance organisation||Achieve 90% of performance targets in the corporate plan|
Each goal has a number of strategies, each of which has objectives. The objectives have a number of initiatives; and each initiative has a number of performance targets.
Fostering an efficient, sustainable, competitive, safe and secure transport system
"safe skies for all"

CASA has a fully integrated budget and costing framework, which has been consistently applied to obtain the cost of outputs.
The general methodology of attributing direct costs and controllable expenses to outputs is based on the daily capture of staff time against the approved business activities that produce our four outputs. Overhead costs are attributed to the outputs based on the staff hours used to deliver each output.
