Governance - Recent Project
The Indigenous Implementation Board of Western Australia
Following the first report of the Indigenous Implementation Board (IIB) in Western Australia, which was provided to the Hon Kim Hames, Minister for Indigenous Affairs in August 2009 and subsequently tabled in Parliament in September 2009, the IIB had the goal of providing the Minister with a strategy and framework for a regional authority. This was delivered in February 2010.
In approaching this work, the Board wished to take into account international best practice in this area, recent studies on issues of governance, examples of regional authorities in Australia and overseas and the key ingredients of success of such models. Ninti One was engaged to do this work.
The objectives of the project were:
- To conduct research to meet the need of the IIB for knowledge and information relevant to regional governance models
- To provide analysis and commentary to guide the consideration of the Board of this material
- To engage in discussion with Board members on the content of the report and its relevance to their aims
The findings of the work contributed to the development of the Board's conceptual and practical work on regional governance for Western Australia.
