Social Services Service Agreement

The Standard Suite of Contracts is used by all Queensland government authorities as the basis for contracts for the provision of social, economic and cultural services, for the provision of funding to community organisations and for sponsorship agreements. The Department of Child Safety, Youth and Women (the Department) funds non-governmental organisations to provide a number of frontline services that enable vulnerable Queenslanders to improve their lives. The Standard Suite of Contracts enables a modern and coherent “one government” approach to the delivery of social services and aims to facilitate transactions with the government. The financing plan is part of the details of the funding and service and imposes the funding and services to be provided as well as the reporting obligations. The optimized short-form agreement is designed for services or activities with low risk and low value. The short-form agreement consists of two parts: when providing services, the supplier will provide projects, assets and services directly related to funded services. Social service contracts are not suitable for purchase: The Standard Suite of Contracts offers the standard terms for all social service funding throughout the Queensland Government. For more information on the Standard Contract Suite, see below. There are two optimized agreements currently used by the department: the optimized service contract is used for most of the financing of the provision of the service and consists of two parts: you must always use one of the 2 standard contract templates if you need a third party to provide social services. Geographic basins are typically used in service agreements to determine where funded services are provided. Geographic basins are also used to jointly map service data and to better show service coverage and distribution in Queensland.

This information can be used to identify service delivery needs and gaps and support the department`s future investment decisions. If something is particularly risky, of high quality, or involved risks that are not covered by the presentation conditions, you should also include special conditions in the details of the financing and service. . . .
