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