The role of the responsible Minister is to oversee and manage the Crown's interests in, and relationships with, their Crown entities, and to carry out any statutory responsibilities. To do this you need to:
make sure an effective board is in place to govern the entity through the appointment, reappointment and removal of board members
participate in setting the strategic direction and annual expectations of Crown entities (which may include improving the alignment of multiple agencies in an area)
agree to the levels of funding for reportable outputs
review entity performance and results
manage risks on behalf of the Crown, and
answer to Parliament for the performance of the entity.
