Nous is reviewing the performance of six NTRB-SPs
Background to the project
The Department of Prime Minister and Cabinet (PM&C) has engaged Nous Group (Nous) to conduct a review of six Native Title Representative Bodies-Service Providers (NTRB-SPs). Nous is an independent and non-government company that works with many organisations to improve their services.
Purpose of the project
For this project Nous will review six NTRB-SPs:
Cape York Land Council, Queensland
Carpentaria Land Council, Queensland
Kimberley Land Council, Western Australia
North Queensland Land Council, Queensland
South Australian Native Title Services, South Australia
Yamatji Marlpa Aboriginal Corporation, Western Australia
The review seeks to answer the following question:
How effectively and efficiently do the six selected NTRB-SPs perform their legislated functions and provide sound corporate governance, both individually and comparatively?
What is this Review not doing?
We are not revisiting or reviewing any claims or native title determinations.
We are not reviewing individual complaints. We won’t provide an answer on whether an NTRB-SP has done something wrong or right to one person or group.
The project is only looking at the performance of NTRB-SPs. It is not assessing ways to improve the broader Native Title system, the performance of PBCs, or the performance of individual staff members at NTRB-SPs.
The review will run from September 2018 to March 2019. Input to the survey has now closed.
