The Uhrig Review and the future of statutory authorities

Governance Australia

In November 2002 the prime minister commissioned former Rio Tinto and Westpac chairman, John Uhrig AO, to review the corporate governance of statutory authorities. The terms of reference required an examination of the relationships between statutory authorities and the responsible minister. Richard Grant examines the recommendations of, and response to, the Uhrig Review. In particular, he notes the recent establishment of the federal Department of Human Services, which was influenced by the Uhrig Review.
