Accountability and reporting
Fair Work Building & Construction (FWBC) is a transparent organisation. A number of public accountability processes require FWBC to report regularly on its operations. These are detailed below, as are FWBC’s people, leadership and diversity policies.
The Australian Government released the Regulator Performance Framework (the Framework) as part of 2014 Spring Repeal Day on 22 October 2014.
In accordance with the requirements within the Framework, FWBC has developed the Key Performance Indicators and performance metrics that will be used to assess our performance and they have been agreed to by the Minister for Employment.
The Corporate Plan is the principal planning document of FWBC and covers the financial years 2015-16 to 2018-19.
In accordance with the Legal Service Directions 2005, FWBC is required to report annually on its legal services purchasing and make records of its legal services expenditure publicly available.
All government agencies including the FWBC are required by Senate Continuing Order No. 10 to provide an index list of all relevant files created by the agency.
In accordance with the Senate order on agency contracts, FWBC reports on contracts entered into to the value of $100,000 or more.
FWBC's Reconciliation Action Plan focuses on improving employment outcomes for Indigenous staff.
FWBC’s Agency Multicultural Plan focuses on ensuring our services are accessible to culturally and linguistically diverse communities in the building and construction industry.
If a person believes that a decision has been made relating to an FWBC investigation that affects them was not correct, then they can request a review.
