Regular monitoring enables the Inspector-General for Emergency Management (IGEM) to determine if the implementation of state-based improvements in emergency management arrangements are effective and sustainable in the long-term, and are actively helping to keep communities safe.
IGEM has two broad monitoring activities:
- implementation monitoring to track the implementation and effectiveness of agreed actions and recommendations
- performance monitoring to proactively identify emerging performance issues, risks and trends.
All IGEM’s assurance activities are guided by the Monitoring and Assurance Framework for Emergency Management which provides the foundation for a coordinated and collaborative approach to sector-wide assurance.
