Strong corporations, strong people, strong communities
Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander corporations play an important role in the lives of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people and their communities, as well as in the broader Australian society. Our vision is of well-governed corporations that inspire trust in the sector and provide high-value services and benefits to members and communities.
To achieve that vision, ORIC staff operate within a framework—documents below are all offered as PDF—that covers:
- our regulatory approach
- how we identify risks
- how we categorise and prioritise cases
- how we measure our performance.
