Draft Accountability and Transparency Framework open for public comment

Posted by Jo Lim on 2 July 2012

In April 2011 the auDA Board commissioned Westlake Consulting Ltd (WCL) to conduct an independent review into the governance of .au. WCL provided its final report to the Board in December 2011, and the Board published its response in February 2012.

One of WCL’s recommendations was for auDA to “develop and publish an Accountability and Transparency Framework, broadly similar to that developed by ICANN.” The Board accepted the recommendation and charged its Governance, Board Succession and Remuneration Committee to oversee the implementation.

The Committee has approved this draft Accountability and Transparency Framework for public consultation.

auDA invites its members, stakeholders and other interested parties to comment on the draft Accountability and Transparency Framework.
