The UDL Board provides strategic direction and governance. It oversees management and ensures there are sufficient resources and finances to realise the company’s functions. Specifically, it:
- appoints the Commissioner taking into account candidates’ objectivity, qualifications (including legal and/or alternative dispute resolution qualifications), experience and personal attributes; and subsequently
- supports the development of skills of the Commissioner
- works with the Commissioner on succession planning
- approves the remuneration policy for Commissioner and Deputy Commissioner.
Our six-member Board is made up of an independent chair and four independent directors, following advice to the relevant Minister, and a future director.
