About the group
The group provides advice to the Minister for COVID-19 Response on specific areas of the response where improvements could be made with the benefit of alternative and independent perspectives.
This can include:
- considering COVID-19 response efforts across the Government’s system-wide response, such as border, managed isolation and quarantine, and public health response
- giving an ongoing independent perspective on the robustness of the COVID-19 response system and opportunities for continuous improvement on specific aspects of the response.
The aim is to give the Minister assurance that learnings have been recorded and implemented by agencies.
