There are many Australian Government boards, bodies and committees covering a wide range of responsibilities, including advisory boards, Government Business Enterprises, and review and enquiry boards.
The roles of Australian Government boards or entities can vary considerably from:
- Governing - Ensure corporate compliance and management accountability; endorse strategic plans
- Regulatory - coordinate policies, plans or projects within and across portfolios
- Registration, appeal and coordination - determine standards, monitor and regulate practice, grant licences, investigate complaints and make judgments
- Advisory - advise and make recommendations on policies, plans and practices.
