This guidance is intended to support public entity Boards to undertake Board and Director performance assessments.
The Victorian Public Sector Commission has developed this guidance by drawing on the expertise of some of Victoria’s most experienced public sector Board Directors. Boards should use this guidance to assist them in undertaking the best possible performance assessments for their circumstances.
This guidance is primarily intended for use by those public entities subject to s.81(1)(d) of the Public Administration Act 2004 (the PAA). Public entities that are not subject to s.81(1)(d) of the PAA are not the primary audience for this publication, however, they may refer to this document for principles based advice.
All Directors are bound by the Code of Conduct for Directors of Public Entities (the Code), which sets minimum accountabilities in relation to performance assessments, and this guidance can assist Directors to meet these accountabilities.
