CASA Annual Report 2003 04 Part 4: Accountability and external scrutiny

Accountability and external scrutiny

Accountability to the Minister

Following the October 2003 legislative changes, CASA’s rolling three-year corporate plan is now formally subject to the Minister’s approval. CASA’s Corporate Plan for 2004–05 to 2006–07 was submitted to the Minister in June 2004 and has been approved. CASA also submitted a draft Performance Agreement to the Minister under the new section 12C of the Civil Aviation Act in relation to the performance of CASA’s functions.

The plan and the agreement have a common foundation of goals, objectives and strategies, but the agreement focuses on near-term priorities and incorporates a formal review and feedback process.
