The Department of Business and Employment (DBE) represents the merging of vital government services and presents an opportunity to develop employment and business growth in the Northern Territory. We have regional offices in several locations across the Territory. DBE can be divided into three core areas all committed to play a critical role in supporting the Government's priority of maintaining a strong, vibrant and growing Northern Territory economy.

The Northern Territory Department of Transport manages the road network and transport infrastructure and undertakes a variety of activities to provide a broad range of road and transport services to the Northern Territory community. Everybody benefits from having a safe and reliable road network that increases the Territory's accessibility and economic potential.

Transport infrastructure includes a wide range of assets from aerodromes and barge landings to jetties, bus stops and park and rides which supports all modes of transport in the Territory.

The Department aims to ensure Government is always responsive to the needs of the public, both by engaging in direct consultation with key representatives in industry and the community, and by collecting and analysing road asset and traffic data on an ongoing basis.

The Northern Territory Department of Infrastructure plays a lead role in planning, constructing and maintaining government infrastructure across the Territory.

With regards to infrastructure development, the department provides strategic advice and policy on a whole-of-government basis for infrastructure planning, building sustainability issues, energy management and capital works project definition, to ensure built assets are fit for purpose and consider life cycle costs.

Within the department, the Construction Division provides project management services for the design, procurement and supervision of the NT Government’s infrastructure program and works closely with clients from across government.

Today, CDU offers a fresh approach to education, training, research and knowledge application.

The University aspires to be internationally recognised as a centre for excellence in Indigenous and cross-cultural knowledge, tropical knowledge and desert knowledge.
