Performance against Regulator Performance Framework

Home / Performance reporting / Performance against Regulator Performance Framework

The Australian Government has committed to reducing the cost of unnecessary or inefficient regulation for individuals, business and community organisations. It has developed a framework to measure the performance of regulators.

As a regulatory body, the AEC aims to reduce the regulatory burden imposed on electors through enrolment and voting activities, and is committed to reporting annually against the framework’s six mandatory key performance indicators. Our performance for 2016–17 is shown in Table 3, cross-referenced to our performance under the AEC’s five agency directions.
