Detail

The agreement covers roles and responsibilities and lines of accountability, and describes how the Department and the Authority will work together.

In future the Department will have framework agreements with each of its arm’s length bodies (ALBs).  Framework agreements describe each organisation’s roles and responsibilities and the lines of accountability between the Department and the ALB.

They focus on how the Department and the ALB will work together to support the successful delivery of policy intentions and objectives, and are part of a suite of documents that describe the governance arrangements for that ALB.
