Negotiating accountability: Trust in the relationship between an Aboriginal Community Controlled Health Organisation and Australian Government funding staff

Previous research found that relationships of trust are significant in negotiating accountability between Aboriginal Community Controlled Health Organisations (ACCHO) and government funders and this is an area for further investigation for better health outcomes for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people. This in-kind project explores how the (mis)alignment between existing government funder accountability requirements and the capacity of ACCHOs to respond be managed or resolved.

This project did not involve financial auditing of the organisation. However, it did seek to explore the views of the ACCHO staff, clients and government funders about their relationship with each other.
