During the reporting period there have been no instances where procurement or grant decisions requiring AMSA Board consideration or approval have involved other related entities where a member of AMSA’s Accountable Authority (i.e. Board) holds a similar position.
Any related entity procurements were operational in nature and authorised by management in accordance with Commonwealth Procurement Rules and relevant delegations, and therefore clearly separated from the Board decision making processes.
Standard protocol at every AMSA Board meeting requires Directors disclose material personal interests that relate to the affairs of AMSA to each other. The disclosure must:
If a matter in which a Board member has an interest is being considered at a Board meeting, (subject to limited exceptions) the member must not be present while the matter is being considered at the meeting; or vote on the matter.
