  • Date:15 Nov 2010
  • Type:Policy & Advocacy: Submission

 On 15 November 2010, the Australian Institute of Company Directors wrote to the Department of Health and Ageing in response to a Discussion Paper “Medicare Locals - Discussion Paper on Governance and Functions”. The submission set out our views on various governance aspects of Medicare Locals. In particular, Company Directors put forward that the governance model adopted by Government for Medicare Local boards should promote the independence of non-executive directors, and boards should be given discretion to determine their own internal governance structures to enable strategic and contractual goals to be met.
