Corporate Governance

Creative Partnerships Australia is overseen by a Board of Directors, appointed by the Minister for Communications, Cyber Safety and the Arts. The board is responsible to the Minister for the governance of Creative Partnerships Australia. Creative Partnerships Australia’s Board members are independent Non-Executive Directors. The Executive Director, Operations and Marketing, acts as Company Secretary.

Creative Partnerships Australia’s Board provides strategic guidance to the company, ensures the effective oversight of management, and the accountability of Creative Partnerships Australia to its stakeholders.

The Board also:

  • approves the annual budget, corporate plan, compliance and annual report;
  • reviews quarterly financial and performance reports;
  • approves expenditure according to financial authority delegations; and
  • undertakes reviews of the risk management framework.

Board oversight is achieved through quarterly board and sub-committee meetings, as well as periodic board-level strategy sessions and board participation in facilitated strategic planning workshops. The board undertakes an annual performance review of the CEO and direct reports.

Creative Partnerships Australia maintains a conflict register which is updated at each board meeting.

A senior executive from the Department of Communications and the Arts attends board meetings as an observer.
