An inter-departmental forum (Monitoring, Appointments & Governance Network - MAGNet) has been established and is open to officials whose work involves monitoring the performance of Crown entities; providing nomination services for membership of government boards; advising on appointments to government boards, and/or providing governance advice.
MAGNet facilitates networking, sharing experience and material, encouraging good practice and consistency of approach, and helping the professional development of officials who have governance and monitoring roles. It is supported by sub-groups which address monitoring, and appointments and governance issues, and by a shared workspace which has a range of information, guidance, discussion boards and other tools. Access to the workspace is limited to State sector agencies. For further information see https://psi.govt.nz/magnet/
