About this inquiry

The bill would amend the enabling legislation of six National Collecting Institutions (Australian National Maritime Museum, National Film and Sound Archive, National Gallery, National Library, National Museum and National Portrait Gallery) to provide them with broader investment powers than currently permitted by the Public Governance, Performance and Accountability Act 2013, improve efficiencies and address longstanding, but minor, administrative inconsistencies between the six Acts.
