The organisational structure provides for advisors and advisory panels and comprises three functional areas: National Capital Plan, National Capital Estate and Corporate.
The NCA's governance framework includes the Authority, Executive Briefing, Audit Committee, Remuneration Board, Health and Safety Committee and an employee consultative committee.
The Chief Executive, Deputy Chief Executive (Chief Planner), Executive Director National Capital Estate, Director Corporate and Chief Finance Officer meet at the beginning of each week to share information about emerging and current issues. This informal forum promotes sharing of information across the NCA. Following Executive Briefings each unit holds debriefs to further facilitate communication flow within the NCA.
The Audit Committee Charter and membership reflects the Australian National Audit Office's (ANAO) Better Practice Guide Public Sector Audit Committees - Having the Right People is the Key.
The Audit Committee comprises an independent chair, and two internal NCA officers - the Executive Director National Capital Estate and the Director Corporate.
The NCA's Chief Finance Officer attends Audit Committee meetings as an observer and the ANAO has a standing invitation to attend as an observer.
The Audit Committee considers and monitors the internal audit plan, internal and external audits, certificate of compliance, the Fraud Control Plan and the financial statements.
Authority Consultative Committee
The NCA’s Authority Consultative Committee (ACC) is established in accordance with the provisions of clause M2 of the NCA Enterprise Agreement 2011-14.
The ACC is a formal consultative forum between management and employee representatives elected by employees as well as a representative of the Community and Public Sector Union to discuss workplace issues. It is not a decision-making body.
The ACC may also at any time make recommendations regarding workplace issues not explicitly covered in the Agreement.
Health and Safety Committee
The Occupational Health and Safety Committee established under the Work Health and Safety Act 2011 [External Link] assists the NCA to:
- Develop and implement measures designed to protect the health and safety of our employees at work;
- Facilitate the cooperation between the NCA and our employees in relation to OHS matters;
- Disseminate to employees information relating to health and safety at work; and
- Provide other OHS functions as agreed.
Comprising the Chief Executive, Chief Planner and Deputy Chief Executive and the Executive Director National Capital Estate, the Remuneration Board makes decisions on levels of remuneration, the link between performance and remuneration and remuneration options. It meets at least once per year, within two weeks of completion of the previous year’s performance assessments.
