Guidelines for the Formation, Acquisition and Post Approval Monitoring of Companies

The purpose of the Guidelines for the Formation, Acquisition and Post Approval Monitoring of Companies is to outline the various issues that should be addressed by agencies in seeking the Treasurer’s approval under section 88 and section 88A of the Financial Accountability Act 2009. Under section 60 of the Financial and Performance Management Standard 2009, a department must have regard to the company guidelines in applying for the Treasurer's approval. The company guidelines  reinforce the importance of establishing appropriate governance, accountability and monitoring frameworks for companies.

The document titled ‘Summary of Changes to the Company Guidelines’ includes details of the significant changes made to the Guidelines in the recent update.
