    3.4 Chief Executive Officer

    For those Government Boards that operate with a Chief Executive Officer (CEO), the responsibilities of the CEO usually include:

    • developing an excellent understanding of the enabling legislation, terms of reference or constitution
    • maintaining proper internal controls and management information systems
    • employment and management of all staff
    • managing the budget of the entity
    • implementing Government Board decisions
    • preparation of the annual strategic plan and annual report, including organisational performance targets for approval of the Government Board
    • operational, administrative and marketing functions
    • communications to and from the organisation.

    The CEO is usually the primary link between the Government Board and the staff of the body and is responsible for communicating Government Board policies and priorities to staff and presenting organisational reports, submissions and budgets to the Government Board. The CEO should work closely with the Chair.
