Outcome Based Management Policy

Applicable to: This policy is applicable to the WA health entities.

Description: The purpose of the Outcome Based Management Policy is to ensure the integrity of the Outcome Based Management (OBM) Framework.

The OBM Framework is a Department of Treasury mandatory requirement for all State Government agencies. Public sector agencies are required to report their financial and operational performance and targets in State budgets and annual reports using an OBM Framework.

This Policy is a mandatory requirement for Health Service Providers under the Outcome Based Management Policy Framework pursuant to section 26(2)(d) of the Health Services Act 2016.

This Policy is a mandatory requirement for the Department of Health pursuant to section 29 of the Public Sector Management Act 1994.
