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
  • appeals
  • 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.
