Policy and Funding Plan Up To 2012

The Funding Plan

The Office for Children and Portfolio Coordination (Early Childhood and Youth) Policy and Funding Plan up to 2012 informs funded organisations about the Department’s funding strategies and priorities relating to early childhood and youth programs.

The Policy and Funding Plan provides an overview of the Department’s policy objectives as well as strategic initiatives and budget for programs that cover early childhood and youth services. It outlines service activities, performance measures, data collection requirements, service standards and guidelines.

The relationship between the Policy and Funding Plan and Service Agreements

Service agreements are the main way that the Department formalises the details of funding provided to funded organisations and the services to be delivered. The Policy and Funding Plan is a supplementary document to these service agreements and is referenced in Schedule 1 of the agreements. It is a formal requirement that funded organisations abide by the funding terms and conditions documented in The Policy and Funding Plan.
