The members of the Outback Communities Authority are responsible for engaging the community and developing policy on matters not addressed in the legislation. A range of policies have been progressively developed and considered by members in collaboration with communities. In certain circumstances it may be necessary or prudent for the Outback Communities Authority to adopt overarching whole of Government policies. These policies included below and marked with an asterisk.
The Outback Communities Authority policies are evaluated at strategic times by Authority's staff. The Outback Communities Authority Board reviews the policies on the recommendation of the Director or within three months of the appointment or renewal of tenure of a Presiding Member, which ever shall occur first. The next review of policies will occur no later than September 2019.
Feedback on revised policies is always welcomed.
