Social services agreements and contracts
We fund non-government organisations to deliver a range of frontline services that enable vulnerable Queenslanders to improve their lives.
There are 2 agreements currently being used:
- service agreement—for the majority of service delivery funding
- short form agreement—for services or activities that are low risk and generally for funding under $100,000 per annum.
The service agreement is used for the majority of service delivery funding and is made up of 3 parts:
- Service agreement – standard terms (PDF)
- funding and service details, which
- align with the whole of government service agreement – standard terms
- specify provisions for the funding, and contract information
- include 1 or more funding schedules
- funding schedules, which
- form part of the funding and service details
- prescribe the funding and services to be delivered and reporting requirements.
We have 2 funding and service details templates:
Short form agreement
We use short form agreements for low risk and low value services or activities. The agreement is made up of 2 parts:
- Short form terms and conditions (PDF)
- particulars, in 2 versions:
Where an organisation has a service agreement in place, funding may be added to the existing service agreement through a funding schedule, rather than entering into a separate short form agreement.
