5.3 List of 194 'Principal Bodies'

Background

The Principal Bodies in Chapter Nine of the Phase One Report – in relation to rationalising and streamlining government bodies – are drawn from material provided by the Department of Finance (the so called ‘Flipchart’ (Department of Finance, 2014) that sets out bodies under the Financial Management and Accountability Act 1997 and Commonwealth Authorities and Companies Act 1997 bodies. The Flipchart is published on the Department of Finance website and updated periodically. The Flipchart at 1 January 2014 was used for the purpose of the Phase One Report and Appendix. The bodies are also listed in Table 5.3.1.
