Operational Policy Framework

The Operational Policy Framework is a set of business rules, policy and guideline principles that outline the operating functions of district health boards.

The Operational Policy Framework (OPF) is one of the schedules to the Crown Funding Agreement. It is updated annually.

The OPF is a set of business rules, policy and guideline principles that outline the operating functions of DHBs.  The OPF is endorsed and signed by the Minister of Health. Before endorsing the document, the Minister will ensure that the Ministry of Health consults with DHBs. Each DHB is responsible for ensuring compliance with the OPF.
