04 April 2013FWBC to publish agency performance data

In the interests of transparency and openness, Fair Work Building & Construction (FWBC) has begun publishing its Dashboard report on its website.

FWBC Chief Executive Leigh Johns said the Dashboard report provided data on the agency’s operational performance against its key performance indicators and targets.

“This information helps to track how we are progressing against our Statement of Strategic Intent goals,” Mr Johns said.

“It will now be readily available to the public, building industry participants and the media so they can see exactly how the agency is tracking.”

The Dashboard report, which has had a two month internal trial period, will be published on the Accountability and Reporting page of FWBC’s website.

Information covered by the Dashboard report includes the percentage of investigations finalised within 90 days, the average age of matters filed in court and the percentage of enquiries responded to within one working day.

“FWBC is committed to open and transparent operations,” Mr Johns said. “Making the Dashboard report available to citizens is an important part of this and is in line with the Office of the Australian Information Commissioner’s principles on open public sector information.”

FWBC is the independent, stand-alone regulator of workplace relations laws in Australia’s construction industry.
