The review of the management of .au domain by the .au Domain Administration (auDA) has been completed and this report has been released on the findings.
The Government has agreed to all 29 recommendations made in the report.
The review’s key finding is that the current management framework is no longer fit-for-purpose. The report recommends reforming auDA’s management framework to support improved transparency, stakeholder engagement, consultation and accountability.
To implement the recommendations, the Minister for Communications has issued new Terms of Endorsement. We will work closely with auDA to develop a public implementation plan to outline how it will respond to the review’s recommendations.
The review also establishes a reporting framework which will require auDA to report transparently on its performance, including against the recommendations of the review.
