Our governance

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 we meet these accountabilities. In particular, the framework is an essential part of our compliance with the PGPA Act and assists our Chair as the Accountable Authority under this Act.

Our governance framework highlights the relationship between governance, risk management and culture. The governance arrangements described within the framework include leadership roles and responsibilities, our corporate and governance committee structure, our plans, policies and frameworks, assurance processes and important interdependencies and relationships.

The governance framework is designed to provide a better-practice model for the agency to achieve optimal transparency and accountability, strong leadership and an effective, collaborative culture. This is supported in the agency through mechanisms such as delegations, policies and standard operating procedures. The framework also supports our agency culture, which is central to achieving our purpose and objectives. An engaged culture positively affects organisational performance.

We are subject to external scrutiny through 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.

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. Our robust governance arrangements ensure that our decisions and actions are upheld when subjected to external scrutiny, and emphasises the chain of accountability for our actions.
