The Board was asked to consider and assess state and territory compliance with section 22A of the Act for the 2018 funding year, while taking into account:
- the terms of Bilateral Agreements with individual jurisdictions under the National School Reform Agreement
- mitigating and contributing factors that have contributed to any non-compliance, and
- timing of state budget processes and impact on compliance and reporting arrangements.
On 23 July 2020, the Australian Government announced its response to the Board’s review.
