Sport Australia is responsible for the government’s funding to Australia’s national sporting organisations to develop sporting excellence and increase participation in sport. It is important, therefore, that the Sport Australia has a clearly stated position with respect to the governance of national sporting organisations to which the Sport Australia provides taxpayer monies.
Strengthening structures that support good leadership and decision making, and ensure sound and effective governance.
Supporting NSOs to best enable compliance, and measures compliance through the Annual Sports Performance Review process.
Governance in sport is evolving and improving, and Sport Australia is committed to ensure this trend continues.
