Funding and Contracting Services

Funding and Contracting Services (FaCS) provides guidance and support to both the public and Not-for-Profit (NFP) sectors on the implementation of the Delivering Community Services in Partnership Policy (DCSP) and the associated funding and contracting reforms.

At a practical level, the focus of FaCS is to support capacity building of both sectors to implement and respond to the procurement reforms by:

  • providing advice and assistance on procurement policy, practice and process requirements;
  • assisting government agencies with procurement capability, planning and strategy, and in facilitating sector engagement, collaboration, and partnership;
  • coordinating a range of education and training initiatives to raise the awareness and understanding of procurement policy and best practice;
  • maintaining a suite of standardised and simplified procurement templates and guides;
  • developing sector support initiatives to build strong relationships with, and improve the capability of the Not-for-Profit (NFP) sector; and
  • reporting to Government and the Supporting Communities Forum on the effectiveness of the DCSP Policy and identifying and responding to key issues related to community services.
