The department is a department of state for the purposes of the Public Service Act 1999 and a non-corporate entity under the PGPA Act.
Hearing Australia and the DTA produce their own annual reports.
Also, Services Australia forms part of the Social Services portfolio (which also includes four other entities that produce their own annual reports: the Department of Social Services; the National Disability Insurance Agency; the NDIS Quality & Safeguards Commission and the Australian Institute of Family Studies).
