The National Sports Tribunal (NST) will provide sports, athletes and athlete support personnel with a cost-effective, independent forum for the timely determination of disputes through private arbitration, mediation, conciliation or case appraisal. It will strengthen sports dispute resolution transparency and accountability as part of an overall reform of Australia’s sports integrity arrangements. The NST will initially be established as a two year pilot, commencing 19 March 2020. The NST will be managed by the CEO, who is a statutory appointee. The CEO will be an official of the Department of Health (the Department) for Public Governance, Performance and Accountability Act 2013 (PGPA Act) purposes. The Secretary is the accountable authority for the Department. The CEO will be supported by APS employees (Registry staff) from the Department whose services will be made available to assist the CEO in connection with the performance of their functions. The NST will be a Division within the Population Health, Sport, Cancer and Health Workforce Group.
