The Portfolio Strategy Division is led by First Assistant Secretary, Nick Blong. The division helps build the strategic policy capability of the agriculture, water, and environment portfolio by facilitating creative problem solving, new ways of working, policy development and data capability to drive the achievement of the department’s purpose, objectives, and priorities. We develop strategic products with a portfolio-wide lens for the Executive Board and Leadership Team, and our Ministers. The division includes 3 branches, which together focus on providing insightful data, policy and technical advice, contribute to new policy development, and coordinate the department’s strategic data policy work program.
