Our governance framework

Governance in the public sector is primarily concerned with the way in which an organisation is controlled, operated and managed in order to achieve its objectives in a manner consistent with the requirements of the law and applicable policies.

This framework sets out the governance arrangements for the Civil Aviation Safety Authority (CASA). The framework contains four chapters:

  • Chapter 1 - Introduction
  • Chapter 2 - CASA's legal framework and foundation
  • Chapter 3 - CASA's system of governance
  • Chapter 4 - CASA's organisation and responsibilities

The framework is a fundamental resource for all levels of CASA management and staff. It's a living document, and includes references to legislation, policy documents and procedural manuals, which are continually evolving.
