Relationship with DVA

The Repatriation Commission is responsible for the general administration of the VEA, with administrative support provided by DVA. The Repatriation Commission has no staff of its own but delegates its powers under section 213(1) of the VEA to DVA staff. The responsibilities of the two bodies are therefore inextricably linked and the Repatriation Commission has a vital interest in DVA activities and in the assessment of the appropriateness, effectiveness and efficiency of departmental programs.

DVA reports to the Repatriation Commission on the administration of major programs and the progress and outcome of all major reviews, including Australian National Audit Office performance audits.
