The NDIS does not change the role of Boards or the key issues of governance. However, in NDIS, the issues of risk, strategy and stewardship assume a greater degree of difficulty and urgency.
If your Board wants to stop talking about governance in a generic way then work with DSC to put it into the context of NDIS and focus on what matters.
Governance & BOARDS RESOURCES
The NSW Government Industry Development Fund (IDF) provide this useful guide to assist organisations in the recruitment of new board members.
This self-assessment checklist has been developed by Dee O'Donnell from DSC and is based on eight governance principles. On completion of the checklist, you will have a set of principles and a prioritised action list that can then be implemented.
