Corporate governance

The Board and ARPC’s leadership team remain committed to maintaining the highest standard of corporate governance and continue to monitor corporate governance trends from a range of sources across government and the private sector. ARPC’s corporate governance framework is underpinned by several key policies such as the Board Charter, the Audit & Compliance Committee Charter and the Enterprise Risk Management Framework (ERMF).
