The Role of Non-Executive Directors in Government


Non-executive directors (NEDs) have existed in Government departments in their current form since 2010, but little is known about their roles and impact. 

The aim of this inquiry is to explore the responsibilities, backgrounds, and influence of non-executives, as well as the appointments process, appropriate roles, and mechanisms for accountability.

This inquiry is no longer accepting evidence

The deadline for submissions was Friday 9 September 2022.
