Consultation on the CEO Standards
The Local Government Legislation Amendment Act 2019 introduced the requirement for there to be mandatory minimum standards for CEO recruitment, performance review and early termination.
The introduction of these standards is intended to ensure best practice and greater consistency in these processes among local governments.
The department sought feedback on draft CEO standards, with submissions closing on 6 December 2019.
A copy of the draft CEO standards can be found here: Draft CEO Standards and Guidelines
The feedback is currently being considered and will inform the drafting of the mandatory minimum standards.
