All ARC activities are supported by a range of governance and management committees, including the Senior Management Group, ARC Audit Committee, Planning and Reporting Committee and the Information Governance Committee. The ARC regularly utilises recommendations from its audits and other evaluation actions to continually improve business practices and maintain high standards of ethical conduct in relation to ARC policies and processes.
The achievement of the ARC purpose and activities is dependent on our strong and effective organisational capability. The ARC maintains and builds its capabilities by investing in its people, processes, and systems. All ARC capabilities are regularly reviewed and evaluated to help maintain reliability, resilience and capacity to respond to current and emerging needs. This approach ensures our people, processes, structures and systems are dependable, responsive to change and aligned to our purpose at all times. Governance The ARC maintains high-quality governance structures that include strategies and frameworks for decision-making, performance measurement and reporting, audit, evaluation, and risk management. These frameworks are supported by internal policies, plans and targeted staff training.
The ARC evidence-based decision-making capability is enhanced by embracing new technologies, such as advanced data visualisation.
