You are in an archived section of the AIFS website
This paper looks at how the governance performance of Indigenous organisations in remote Australia could be improved through innovations in public finance management. It reviews the literature on Australian and international experiences, then suggests avenues for future engagement, in particular the feasibility of block funding arrangements for organisations' core functions. It summarises what is known, what works, and areas for further research.
