We have continued to evolve our governance structure to ensure it stays fit-for-purpose and that any risks to our business are managed. Our governance bodies lead and guide us. They set our strategic direction and oversee our progress. Members have clearly defined roles and responsibilities to ensure separation of governance and management accountabilities.

In addition, a Risk and Assurance Committee provides independent advice to the Commissioner on our risk management and system of internal controls. The members are experts with a mixture of skills in assurance, financial management, risk management and organisational change.
