Summary "Governments have significant interaction with the community, with a significant proportion of this conducted through statutory authorities and office holders. This is particularly so in the areas of taxation, regulation, and the provision of services. The community has a right to expect that these functions will be carried out in a manner that is efficient, objective and transparent. The Government commissioned the review of the corporate governance of statutory authorities and office holders to identify reforms that might assist in improving the performance of these bodies, without compromising their statutory duties." -- p. 1
