CAC Act Matters

Welcome from Stein Helgeby

Welcome to our inaugural issue of the CAC Act Matters newsletter.

Having recently taken on policy responsibilities for the Commonwealth Authorities and Companies Act 1997 (CAC Act), I see this newsletter as another way to help keep you up-to-date on issues that are relevant to your operations.

The newsletter is designed to provide you with assistance to understand your obligations under the CAC Act, and to assist you in your roles and responsibilities.

CAC Act bodies play an important role in the Australian community. We are keen to maintain good communication on CAC Act matters. We also expect that those of our colleagues in Departments who work closely with CAC Act bodies will have an interest in CAC Act Matters.
