Queensland Rail is committed to ensuring its
decision-making and approval processes are robust and defensible and that
personnel are appropriately empowered to perform their roles in order to contribute
to the achievement of the organization’s strategic and operational objectives.
Appropriate delegations of authority help ensure authority is properly
exercised in a manner that is transparent, accountable and reflective of
Queensland Rail’s administration of public funds as a statutory authority.
What we will do
To enable informed, timely and defensible decision making, we
recognise the authority
reserved to responsible Ministers and the Queensland Rail Board;
specify the authority
delegated by the Board to the Queensland Rail CEO and to other personnel within
designate the manner in
which delegated authority is to be exercised, particularly in relation to the
granting of approvals;
and guiding principles that are to govern the exercise of delegated authority;
promote a culture of
accountability and responsibility, and
align the delegation of
authority with Queensland Rail’s systems and business processes to facilitate
efficient and effective decision making.
