IGEM undertakes system-wide reviews, including reviews of the emergency management functions of responder agencies and government departments as prescribed in section 66 of the Emergency Management Act, and based on an Annual Forward Plan of Reviews.

Annual Forward Plan of Reviews 2023-24

This forward plan provides a high-level description of the reviews IGEM will conduct in 2023-24. It includes broad information specific to the context, aim, scope, stakeholders, approach, outputs, publication, implementation and intended review outcomes.

In developing this forward plan, IGEM considered recent reviews and inquiries, ongoing reform in the sector, state and local risk assessments, and other risks to Victorian communities.

IGEM also considered the risks and themes from its ongoing monitoring of previous recommendations made to the minister and other performance monitoring conducted under the Act. Targeted stakeholder engagement was conducted to inform its final selection of reviews. 

Based on these considerations, IGEM will conduct one planned review in 2023-24:

  • Review of Victoria’s preparedness for major chemical, biological and radiological incidents

This review will be conducted under section 64(1)(b) of the Act.

IGEM's reports are published on this website subject to approval from the minister.
