Hear an analysis of the 2024-25 State Budget

Principal Sponsor

All thoughts of recession seem to have been put on ice and so to the 2024 WA State Budget. How have the government assessed the year ahead? What are the key decisions they have taken that will affect the public service?

We are delighted to host the Hon Rita Saffioti BBus MLA Deputy Premier; Treasurer; Minister for Transport; Tourism, deliver the keynote presentation for this year’s IPAA WA Budget Briefing.

 The IPAA WA State Budget Briefing will:

  • provide you with access to expert insight into our state’s preparedness for the year ahead,
  • give you valuable additional information and opinion to inform strategic planning, and
  • give public service professionals across a range of professional backgrounds and responsibilities an easily understood, comprehensive understanding of the budget and its impact on the public service.

 You will benefit from attending if:

  • you have, or aspire to, responsibilities under the Public Sector Commission’s Leadership Capability Framework to understand the context in which your organisation operates,
  • your work is subject to the annual budget cycle, and you want to know more about the why,
  • you wish to sustain or increase your capability as a professional public servant to deliver meaningful support to the leadership of your business area and organisation.

Following presentations, you will have the opportunity to ask questions of the presenters in the audience Q&A.

We welcome KPMG back as our sponsor and Lance Glare as MC. Lance’s public service career including his key role in Infrastructure WA ensure that you are in safe hands on the day.

Rita Saffioti was elected to State Parliament in 2008 for the electorate of West Swan, and became a Shadow Minister in 2013.

In 2017, Rita was appointed Minister for Transport and Planning in the McGowan Government.

Following the re-election of the Labor Government in March 2021, Rita was reappointed as the Minister for Transport and Planning, while also being named as the Minister for Ports.

In 2023, Rita was appointed Deputy Premier and Treasurer, while also taking on the Tourism portfolio and retaining Transport.
These diverse portfolios give Rita the opportunity to continue overseeing delivery of the Government’s major transformative METRONET project, pursuing the State’s goal to become the fastest-growing events destination in the South East Asia region and a global tourism hotspot, while also overseeing the State’s finance as an economist by trade.

Some of her proudest achievements include returning railcar manufacturing to Western Australia, starting construction on the METRONET Morley-Ellenbrook Line and securing record funding from the Commonwealth to upgrade regional roads.

After finishing her schooling at Kelmscott Senior High School, Rita gained a Bachelor of Business at Curtin University before moving to Canberra to work at the Department of Finance and then returning to Western Australia to work at the Department of Treasury.

In 1997 Rita commenced working for then Opposition Leader Geoff Gallop as an economic adviser, continuing this role into Government before ultimately becoming Chief of Staff to Premier Alan Carpenter.

Rita has three young children, a 13 -year-old and 11-year-old twins. When not at Parliament, Rita can usually be found with her family at the footy cheering on her team, the Fremantle Dockers.
