Governance framework

The department's governance framework outlines the mechanisms we have in place to drive our performance, achieve our organisational goals and objectives and deliver on government outcomes that enable the department to deliver valuable services to the community.

Governance committees

Our key governance committees are responsible for high-level direction-making, accountability and the performance of our department. The Committee structure establishes the overarching governance framework for the department, allowing for a strong and integrated approach to planning, performance and risk management.

Our Charter

Guiding the departmental staff and business strategies, Our Charter directs our activities for a safe, fair and responsible Queensland.

Risk and disaster management

Each government department must have a risk and disaster management system in place to identify, assess and manage risks that could impact on us achieving our goals and objectives. This includes disaster management, ensuring key measures are in place to mitigate a natural disaster event or other incident.
