  1. Connected, Customer and Community Centric

    We recognise that we are part of a wider eco-system.

  2. Courageous

    We seek to understand difficult problems and provide useful possibilities that may challenge the status quo.
    We aspire to have the courage of our convictions.

  3. Collaborative, Co-design, Co-creation, Co-production

    We believe involving many sources creates better insights and innovations, so we do everything with others.
    We are open in our processes and with what we learn.

  4. Coherent

    We seek to raise awareness of design and innovation, of their importance and to integrate them into the practice of the public service.

  5. Co-sponsored

    We, and our projects, are a collaboration across agencies and the design ecosystem.
    We are part of the Australian Government, and we also seek to build excellence in design across the wider public sector.
