As of August 1, 2017, the Human Services Agreement will apply to all organizations funded by an NSW government agency to provide ”human services.” Human services are defined by the NSW government as programs, facilities or services provided to meet the health, social and social needs of individuals, families and communities. Prior to 2017, the DCJ, formerly known as the Department of Families and Community Services (FACS), had other models of contracts with service providers, including the Funding Agreement and the Program Level Agreement (PLA). Since 2017, DCJ has been using the Human Services Agreement (HSA) for new contracts, as old contracts expire. In particular, funding certificates and the PLA have been replaced by the standard HSA conditions and the HSA calendar. Most DCJ contracts expired in June 2020 and HSA will use new contracts from July 2020. If your organization still needs advice on the basis of FACS funding, please contact us for help.
