The appointment of new non-executive directors was one of a number of changes announced by the Government in May 2010 to ensure that expertise from outside Government continues to help departments become more business-like.

The non-executives will provide advice; supporting, as well as challenging, the Ministerial and management teams on issues such as performance, the operational or delivery implications of policy proposals, and on the effective management of the Department
