The Board is responsible for undertaking reviews of different parts of the funding model under the Australian Education Act 2013 (the Act). These reviews help ensure public confidence in the funding model and ensure states, territories and other approved authorities comply with their obligations under the Act.
Over time, the reviews undertaken by the Board will help to ensure the funding model is using the best available data and methodologies, as well as making sure funding is used in line with the Act.

- Mr Michael Chaney AO (Chair)
