NFPs Asked to Comment on Govt Consultation Code
Tuesday, 18th September 2012 at 10:05 am

The Not-For-Profit Reform Council will hold consultations with Not for Profits around Australia in October as part of a process to develop a best practice Consultation Code for how Government consults with the NFP sector.

The seventh meeting of the Reform Council was held in Melbourne recently at the new premises of the Australian Charities and Not-for-profits Commission (ACNC) Taskforce where the Consultation Code was discussed.

The meeting was told that during October 2012, the Reform Council would be holding sessions around Australia on the specific undertakings to be included in the Consultation Code and will seek feedback on how these could be measured.

In May 2012, the Office for the Not-for-Profit Sector conducted an online survey inviting NFP organisations to provide feedback on the Government’s relationship with the sector.

The survey results were used to assist in the Consultation Code of Best Practice which is being co-developed by the NFP Sector Reform Council and Office for the NFP Sector.

The Reform Council says the draft Code is now being developed and NFP organisations are invited to participate in the consultations regarding the principles and undertakings of the draft Code and to establish what, if any, measurements should be applied.

Consultations will be conducted online via the National Compact website and face-to-face workshops which will be run by the Reform Council throughout October.

The Reform Council says once details of the consultation sessions are finalised, they will be posted on the National Compact website at www.nationalcompact.gov.au.

If you were not involved in the survey but wish to take part in the consultation sessions, register your interest at nationalcompact@pmc.gov.au.

The next Reform Council meeting will be held in Canberra on November 15.
