Corporate governance

Our governance processes guide us in achieving our mission and meeting public expectations of probity, accountability and transparency.

The Director-General of Security is the accountable authority for ASIO under the Public Governance, Performance and Accountability Act 2013 (PGPA Act).

During the reporting period, we introduced a new governance framework to establish clearer points of accountability and streamline decision-making processes. The new structure consists of an Executive Committee, supported by two advisory committees (the Security and Compliance Committee, and the Capability and Investment Committee) and an independent advisory committee (the Audit and Risk Committee).
