We have developed a fact sheet on the Commonwealth Simple Grant Agreement (part of the Department of Finance collection). The Commonwealth Simple Grant Agreement is based on and replaces the previous „Low Risk Grant Agreement“ and contains additional design options for additional conditions. These models are intended to replace specific agency agreement models, including Department of Social Services (DSS) models. The DSS-Streamlined-Grant agreement is not part of the Ministry of Finance`s submission suite and will expire as DSS enters into new grant agreements with local organizations. Organizations should seek independent legal advice on the terms and practical consequences of their Commonwealth grant agreements. The documents that make up the agreement between the Commonwealth government and the funded agency will be different and may contain the following documents: The Department of Finance has published a series of public financial assistance models that will be used by Commonwealth units when they enter into grant agreements in 2018. As part of the Australian government`s initiative to reduce bureaucracy, the Department of Finance has developed a financial-scale financial assistance model that should be used by businesses to make low-risk grants. Finance has developed a series of user models and manuals to assist the Commonwealth in its licensing activities; including Models of Grant Opportunities, Grant Agreements and Variations. The Commonwealth Simple Grant Agreement is not just a document – it consists of a series of documents. Subsidized organizations must ensure that they are aware of the conditions of all documents, as they together form the Commonwealth Simple Grant Agreement.
