Information about the annual accountability process, why it’s important, and resources to assist with preparing submissions. Annual accountability applies to services providers contracted by DCJ in child and family, community inclusion, and homelessness programs.
The benefits of annual accountability
The annual accountability process contributes to the continual improvement of performance by DCJ and the service sector.
From our perspective, annual accountability offers a detailed picture of the current capacity and performance of our service providers. This, in turn, gives a snapshot of the strength and viability of the funded services sector.
The information captured during the process:
- guides us in how to better support the sector
- enables us to identify ways to improve and innovate at the program and sector levels.
From an individual service provider’s perspective, annual accountability confirms how well an organisation is governed and financially managed.
It also enables us to gauge whether the organisation has the capacity and capability to continue to deliver the agreed services.
From a sector perspective, the annual accountability process assures DCJ and our service partners that the service sector continues to be capable of delivering better outcomes for our clients.
