The Department has three core functions that enable it to achieve this overarching purpose:
- Supporting the Prime Minister – to define and deliver the Government's objectives.
- Supporting the Cabinet – to drive the coherence, quality and delivery of policy and operations across departments.
- Strengthening the Civil Service – to ensure the civil service is organised effectively and has the capability in terms of skills, values and leadership to deliver the Government's objectives.
