Power and Water Management and Board guide the strategic vision of our government-owned corporation, ensuring it meets regulatory and statutory requirements and organisational and financial performance goals.

Power and Water Corporation is established under the Power and Water Corporation Act 2002 and is a Northern Territory Government-Owned Corporation under the Government Owned Corporations Act 2001. We have a Shareholding Minister and a Portfolio Minister.

Our Board of Directors is responsible to the Shareholding Minister (who holds the shares in the Government Owned Corporation on behalf of the Northern Territory Government), for the corporation’s operational and financial performance and is required to provide a Statement of Corporate Intent each financial year.

The Statement of Corporate Intent defines the contract between the government and the Corporation. It sets out the nature and scope of our business activities, our objectives and strategies, risk management, capital investment plans and performance targets over a four-year period commencing 1 July 2018.

In accordance with the Government Owned Corporations Act 2001 (GOC Act), Power and Water’s objectives are to:

  • operate at least as efficiently as any comparable business
  • maximise the sustainable return to the Northern Territory Government on its investment in the corporation.

Our Annual Report is produced in addition to the Statement of Corporate Intent and provides the results of the year’s performance and activities.
