Appendix 8

Purchaser—provider arrangements

The department provides management and administrative services to other Australian Government agencies at our overseas missions. This ensures consistency and efficient use of resources and avoids duplication of effort (in accordance with the 2007 Prime Minister’s Directive). We manage these arrangements through a Service Level Agreement (SLA). The current three-year SLA was negotiated with other agencies and came into force in September 2007. The SLA recognises the need to extend our provision of management services to additional categories of Australian Government employees, such as those on secondment to other organisations overseas. In 2007–08 we provided services under the SLA to:

Attorney-General’s Department
AusAID
Australian Centre for International Agricultural Research
Australian Customs Service
Australian Federal Police (including the Australian Federal Police Protective Service)
Australian Nuclear Science and Technology Office
Australian Security Intelligence Organisation
Australian Taxation Office
Australian Trade Commission (Austrade)
Commonwealth Scientific and Industrial Research Organisation
Department of Agriculture, Fisheries and Forestry
Department of Defence
Department of Education, Employment and Workplace Relations
Department of Environment, Water, Heritage and the Arts
Department of Health and Ageing (Therapeutic Goods Administration)

Department of Infrastructure, Transport, Regional Development and Local Government
Department of Innovation, Industry, Science and Research
Department of Resources, Energy and Tourism
Department of Veterans’ Affairs
Invest Australia
National Library of Australia

The Treasury.

The Department of Immigration and Citizenship, Department of Defence, AusAID, Australian Federal Police and the Department of Education, Employment and Workplace Relations are the main purchasers of services under the SLA.

The department has purchaser–provider arrangements to provide information and communications technology (ICT) services to Australian Government agencies with staff at our overseas missions and at a number of agency locations within Australia.
