Treasury management guidelines


These guidelines set a framework to guide Government Business Enterprises in the development and management of their treasury function.

The framework is designed to ensure consistency with:

  • the debt and financial management objectives and risk tolerance of the State;
  • the institutional and administrative structure for public sector treasury management; and
  • the accountability framework that has been established under the GBE reform program.

The guidelines provide detail on the Government’s overall public sector debt management objectives which are:

  • to ensure the State’s net debt is maintained at a prudent level;
  • to ensure access to financial markets;
  • to minimise borrowing costs; and
  • to ensure effective management of the State’s financial risks.

They also outline the responsibilities of the Department, Treasury Corporation of Victoria and Government Business Enterprises with regard to financial risk.
