The mission of the Free State Department of The Premier is to provide strategic direction and to coordinate integrated service delivery within government in the Free State. The Department of The Premier does not render services directly to the public. The Department provides support to the Premier and the Executive Council, and coordinates and gives strategic direction to provincial departments and municipalities.

These functions are captured in the following three strategic goals of the Department: the Premier and the Executive Council are effectively supported in achieving government's goals and priorities; departments in the Free State Provincial Government are strategically guided and coordinated with regard to transverse corporate support functions; and activities of departments and municipalities in the Free State are integrated and aligned towards the achievement of the goals and priorities of government.
