Review of the National Women’s Alliances Operating Framework
An independent review of the National Women’s Alliances has found that the Alliance model is effective and recommends a range of improvements to strengthen the Alliances’ relationships with each other, with government and with the many and diverse women of Australia.
KPMG was engaged to conduct a review of the National Women’s Alliances model (the Alliance model). There were several key areas of focus, including:
- assessing the coherence of the Alliance model and its stated and achieved strategies, outputs, and desired and achieved outcomes
- assessing whether the Alliance model is functioning as intended on the ground
- assessing the alignment of the Alliance model with the Australian Government’s priorities
- assessing the future of the Alliance model
- identifying alternative models for representing sectoral concerns to government.
The review drew on information from several sources, including:
- analysis of Alliance funding agreements, work plans and progress reports
- desktop research
- consultations with staff from the Office for Women (OfW), Alliance Chairs and staff, contacts nominated by the Alliances and stakeholders nominated by the Department of Prime Minister and Cabinet (PM&C)
- a stakeholder survey, distributed to all Alliance members by the Chairs of each Alliance.
