Minister's Statement of Expectations
Good regulatory practice
In January 2018, the Minister for Planning issued a Statement of Expectations for the Victorian Building Authority. The 2017–18 Statement sets out the Minister's expectations for the VBA to reduce red tape and improve regulatory practices.
This is the second Statement of Expectations issued to the Victorian Building Authority under the Victorian Government framework. The Statement outlines key governance and performance objectives aimed at promoting greater efficiency and effectiveness.
The Statement covers:
- Performance improvements
- Risk-based strategies
- Demonstrating good regulatory practice
- Continued implementation of VAGO recommendations
- Improved business systems, and
- Transparency and accountability.
The VBA is currently preparing its official response to the Statement and will report against the initiatives in its 2017–18 Annual Report.
