Executive Perspectives on Balance in Oversight and Accountability

1 minute read

The Institute on Governance (IOG) is working to facilitate a dialogue on the evolving balance in accountability and oversight, reporting burden and the relationship between Agents of Parliament and the public service. The superstructure of rules, oversight and independent “guardians” has been growing since Program Review and HRDC’s grants and contributions controversy. Many of the resultant institutional arrangements and policy instruments are reaching a point of maturity.

Several years into this focus on public accountability, now is a good time to assess and reflect on the broad array of institutional arrangements in terms of their contribution to good governance, the management of the public service and the practical impact of the reporting requirement.
