The Chief Executive Officer is responsible for the day‑to‑day management of IHPA and its staff. Under s. 163(4) of the National Health Reform Act 2011, the Chief Executive Officer is the accountable authority of IHPA for the purposes of the Public Governance, Performance and Accountability Act 2013, and therefore for this annual report.

To achieve its annual program of work, IHPA consults and collaborates with the Commonwealth and state and territory governments, advisory committees, key stakeholders and the public.

The IHPA office in Sydney is the only facility of the entity and IHPA’s major activities are located there.
