Delegations, Authorisations and Appointments Health Check

Delegations, authorisations and appointments (DAAs) need regular and consistent attention. However, DAAs are often only reviewed periodically due to resource constraints or other priority work, or the responsibility for DAAs moves around the agency or is permanently dispersed across the agency.

Many agency systems and processes for DAAs are at risk of decline and disorder. If not addressed, this can have a
significant adverse effect on the operations of the agency.
