Our agency’s Governance Framework describes the legislative and policy obligations that we are accountable for and how we work, within our agency and with others, to ensure we meet these accountabilities. This framework is an essential part of our compliance as a non-corporate Commonwealth entity under the
Public Governance, Performance and Accountability Act 2013.
Our Governance Framework provides a better-practice model for our agency to achieve optimal transparency and accountability, strong leadership and an effective, collaborative culture. It is supported across our agency through mechanisms such as delegations, policies and standard operating procedures.
We are subject to external scrutiny through external audits by the Australian National Audit Office, appeals made to the Administrative Appeals Tribunal, regular reporting to Parliament and the Minister for Energy and Emissions Reduction, and other external reviews.
Internal management assurance in relation to governance and internal control settings are supplemented by the independent assurance provided by our agency’s Audit Committee. Our robust governance arrangements emphasise the chain of accountability for our actions and ensure our decisions and actions are accountable when subjected to external scrutiny.
