The 2012–13 Annual Report records a year of change, milestones and outstanding achievement in providing services to Victorians.

The most significant change, announced by the Premier of Victoria on 9 April 2013, was the merger of the Department of Sustainability and Environment (DSE) and the Department of Primary Industries (DPI) to form the Department of Environment and Primary Industries (DEPI) and the transfer of Land Victoria to the new Department of Transport, Planning and Local Infrastructure.

The changes strengthen the government’s focus on jobs, investment and more effective delivery of regional services. Positioning environment and agricultural services together in one department allows us to deliver better and more efficient environmental management and agricultural support and provide a ‘one-stop shop’ approach across private and public land and water.
