Rail is committed to ensuring its decision-making and approval processes are
robust and defensible and that our people are appropriately empowered to
perform their roles in order to contribute to the achievement of the organisation’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 and its subsidiary Queensland
Rail Limited’s administration of public funds.
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 positions within the organisation;
designate the manner in which delegated authority is to be exercised, both on a financial, risk and functional basis, particularly in relation to the granting of approvals;
identify accountabilities and guiding principles that are to govern the exercise of delegated authority in accordance with Queensland Rail’s policies and procedures;
empower our people and 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.
