The Treasury is one of many agencies worldwide that monitor government-owned companies. The Treasury has been active in leading the establishment of the International Network of Government Ownership Agencies (INGOA), a worldwide network of organisations with a similar monitoring function.

The Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD) is an important international forum for sharing best practice in policy frameworks for government-owned companies. The Treasury keeps in touch with the work of the OECD. Publications such as OECD Guidelines on Corporate Governance of State-owned Enterprises are important reference documents for the Treasury.

INGOA was formed in 2005 as a mutually beneficial, non-political association of governmental shareholding and/or monitoring organisations.  Its purpose is to enable government organisations concerned with the practice of government ownership of enterprises to improve their performance by learning from each others' experience and knowledge.  The network is concerned with practical issues and aims to be as informal as possible.

The INGOA website is at
