NT Government boards and committees
Government boards and committees play an important role in good governance.
They provide governments with independent and expert governance and advice.
They're also an effective link between government and the community.
Northern Territory Government (NTG) boards and committees are established either:
- under an Act of Parliament
- by a decision of government
- by an individual minister.
Their functions include:
- governance and management
- advice and review
- policy development
- community engagement
- regulation of professions.
Examples of NTG boards and committees include the Building Practitioners Board, Veterinary Board of the NT and the Planning Commission.
To understand board members' responsibilities, read the NTG boards handbook.

Inclusion and diversity
To achieve a greater diversity of skills, experiences and knowledge, the NTG aims:
- to increase Aboriginal representation on boards through the Closing the Gap Implementation Plan, and encourages expressions of interest from Aboriginal Territorians over the age of 18
- to read the plan, go to the Office of Aboriginal Affairs website
- for gender balance on boards, wherever possible
- for more information, read about the Office of Gender Equity and Diversity on the Territory Families, Housing and Communities website.
Remuneration and entitlements
For remuneration purposes, boards are classified into classes and sub-classes.
Read about board classification and remuneration.
Inquiries into the entitlements of key NT office holders are undertaken by the Remuneration Tribunal.
