AIATSIS Submission – Prescribed Body Corporate (PBC) Support Strategy

PBC Support Strategy cover

The Australian Institute of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Studies (AIATSIS) recommends that the Commonwealth recognise the changing roles of Native Title Representative Bodies and Service Providers (NTRB/SP) and the infrastructure and support they provide to the PBC sector while offering flexible policies and processes that allow for PBC autonomy and local decision-making.

More specifically, this brief responds to the following main points identified in the Terms of Reference (TOR):

  1. Better engagement between PBCs and governments
  2. More effective, transparent and coordinated funding for PBCs
  3. Additional support for PBCs (other than providing direct funding)
  4. Options for legislative and institutional role reform to support an effective and accountable native title system
