Organisations should periodically assess their governance structures, systems and processes. This might be for regulatory reasons, to enhance accountability to stakeholders, due to a change in ownership type, or simply to ensure that the organisation’s governance is sound and consistent with current best practice.

To assist organisations in this regard, Directors Australia conducts independent and objective governance audits against our Good Governance Framework which we have developed through our extensive experience in working with the boards of a broad range of organisations.

Areas covered in our audits include:

  • governance structures
  • governance systems and reporting mechanisms
  • governance documentation
  • board manuals and policies
  • meeting procedures and processes
  • board papers.

Our audits are conducted in a constructive and consultative manner and result in a report assessing the organisation’s governance against the Good Governance Framework, and recommending actions to be undertaken.
