This paper outlines the findings from an initial feasibility study for a new, Aboriginal-led, independent statutory accountability entity to strengthen oversight of Victorian Government programs for Aboriginal people – a Victorian Aboriginal Authority (the Authority).

The aim of the feasibility study is to assess whether there was potential support, need and merit in the proposal for an Authority and, if there was, to identify some of the key operating principles and structures of an Authority. This paper also identifies issues for further discussion and recommended next steps.
