Services Australia (the Agency) makes government services simple so people can get on with their lives. Our goal is to make it easier to engage with the services that Australians rely on. To achieve this goal, we are transforming the way we work to deliver a simple, helpful, respectful and transparent experience for customers.

The Chief Financial Officer (CFO) Division provides financial advice, contestability, control and assurance to the Agency based on the following principles:

  • Simple, helpful, respectful, quality, contestable and informed financial advice to assist Agency decision making, including finance business partners where it is efficient, effective and practical to do so;
  • Standardised, centralised, and streamlined financial structures, processes, reporting and services, in order to remove duplication and reduce inefficiencies; and
  • The automation of financial processes where it is efficient and viable to do so.

Directors are responsible for leading and providing strategic direction to a team, including developing business plans, and identifying opportunities for building team capability and continuous improvement.
