Board Performance

Tabled: 11 May 2017

Boards are the governing bodies of public sector entities. Board members set the overall strategic direction for the entity, and monitor and manage the performance of senior management.

In Victoria, around 3 400 public sector entities are governed by boards with, in total, about 33 000 board members—known as directors. These boards vary significantly in type and role. Most directors are from outside the public service and 85 per cent of them are unpaid.

In this audit, we examined whether boards are performing effectively and contributing to effective governance of public sector entities.

We make four recommendations directed to portfolio departments, the Department of Premier and Cabinet and the Victorian Public Sector Commission.
