Governance review

In March 2017, the Australian Government commissioned an independent review of the Authority’s governance, led by independent reviewer, Dr Wendy Craik AM.

The review looked at the arrangements governing the Authority to determine whether current arrangements were the best fit for the Authority’s work.

The independent review report was released in October 2017 and the Government accepted all 24 recommendations. The Authority has responsibility for implementing 10 of these recommendations, with the remaining 14 recommendations to be implemented by the Department of the Environment and Energy.

The Authority and the Department remain committed to implementing the recommendations, with 19 completed and significant progress made toward achieving the remaining five recommendations.
