The Inspector-General for Emergency Management (IGEM) develops the Assurance Framework for Emergency Management (the Framework) in consultation with its sector partners.

As the sector’s overarching assurance framework, it supports continuous improvement and promotes a coordinated sector-wide approach to assurance activities such as debriefs, reviews, evaluations, and investigations.

All of IGEM’s assurance activities are guided by the Framework.

 

 

Assurance Framework for Emergency Management

IGEM maintains the Framework in accordance with the Emergency Management Act 2013.

The Framework supports continuous improvement and promotes a coordinated sector-wide approach to assurance.  Guided by the Framework and its four principles, Victoria’s emergency management sector will have a more coordinated, less burdensome and more valuable approach to assurance activities such as reviews, evaluations, monitoring and reporting.
