At all times in the creation or review of our services three leading government policies are taken into consideration, the principals and actions towards Closing the Gap, the Northern Territory Key Performance Indicators and the Commonwealth Key Performance Indicators.
2015/2016 saw continued capital expansion investment and a greater concentration on internalised systems and information technology improvements.
These recommendations are from two key leadership continuous quality improvement activities; the Organisational Health Check and audits of ISO QMSon operations and cultural standards. We have been quite excited at the future of improvements and much has been learned on turning expected client standards into written and behavioural actions.
