The ROC is an independent government body, forming part of the Fair Work Ombudsman and Registered Organisations Commission Entity (FWOROCE), along with the Fair Work Ombudsman (FWO). Some of the ROC's regulatory requirements are fulfilled jointly with the FWO through the FWOROCE.

The Regulator Performance Framework

The Regulator Performance Framework (RPF) is an important part of the Government’s commitment to reducing the cost of unnecessary or inefficient regulation. The RPF encourages regulators to undertake functions and achieve objectives with the minimum impact on regulated entities by, among other things, measuring and publicly reporting performance. Six Key Performance Indicators (KPIs) were developed by the Government in 2014, against which regulators measure their performance.

The ROC is required to report against the KPIs commencing from the year 201718. The following performance metrics have been developed to assess our performance against the KPIs. Our results will be published on our website.

Under the Senate Order for Entity Contracts the FWOROCE must set out contracts for services costing more than $100 000 that haven't been completed, or have been entered into during the previous 12 months. The contracts are set out in lists published on the AusTender website. 

The 2018 calendar year procurement contracts are available through the Senate Order Report on the AusTender Senate Order page external-icon.png.
