Government Entity

Government Entity

A major driver of governance systems is the regulatory, legal and ownership environment in which a government entity operates.

Through our extensive experience, we understand the challenges and the opportunities your environment presents, particularly with recent court decisions and increasing legal obligations.

Value of Governance

  • Improved performance to meet stakeholder expectations, including Ministers, clients and the Public
  • Compliance with Commonwealth/State/Local Government legislation.
  • The review of the CEO/Executive Director can be a challenging process and discussion, reflecting upon expectations is a healthy and robust process that will improve the relationship of the board and the CEO/Executive Director.
