Governance framework

The Department for Education and Child Development (DECD) has a governance framework that shows the vision and values of the department as outlined in the DECD Strategic Plan 2014–2017 (PDF 456KB). It outlines the key elements that set out, influence, and shape our decision-making as well as the legislative and public reporting requirements that we must follow.
