Collaboration with other agencies
Outsourcing key functions
As a small agency, Safe Work Australia leverages arrangements with other Commonwealth agencies to supplement internally resourced corporate functions.
A memorandum of understanding (MoU) with the Department of Education, Skills and Employment (formerly the Department of Jobs and Small Business) commenced in July 2018 to deliver services including IT support, IT infrastructure and storage, telecommunications and mail services. This MoU is in place until 30 June 2021.
The Department of Finance’s Service Delivery Office, one of the providers of shared services for Australian Government departments and agencies, provides Safe Work Australia with enterprise resource planning system services and human resource services.
The agency also has an MoU with the Australian Competition and Consumer Commission to sublease premises at Level 7, 2 Phillip Law Street in New Acton, Canberra.
