Legislation and administration

Boards and committees play an important role in good governance. They provide an effective link between government and the community.

NTG boards and committees are established under an Act of Parliament, by a decision of Government, or by an individual Minister.

Remuneration and other entitlements for members of statutory bodies are governed by the Assembly Members and Statutory Officers (Remuneration and Other Entitlements) Act. The Department of the Chief Minister administers this Act, which can be viewed at Northern Territory Legislation Database.
