Corporate governance

Governance in the CDPP provides a framework to ensure we meet the standards of fairness, openness, consistency, accountability and efficiency in prosecuting offences against the Commonwealth and, in meeting these standards, maintain the confidence of the public we serve.

Good governance considers both performance and accountability within a risk management framework, rather than trading one off against the other.

We continually refine our governance arrangements to ensure they are fit‑for‑purpose and clear to everyone. Our governance structure provides clarity on accountabilities, and aligns our work and relationships with our stakeholders. This enables us to work with our partners to achieve the outcome and purpose expressed in our Corporate Plan.
