Industry Consultation - Draft Employment Services Joint Charter of Deed Management and Services Guarantees - July 2015

The Department of Employment has drafted a proposed Joint Charter of Deed Management and Employment Services Guarantees to take effect from 1 July 2015. The Department invites broad consideration and feedback by the employment services industry and interested stakeholders.

Feedback Request

You are invited to provide feedback on the proposed Joint Charter of Deed Management and Employment Services Guarantees by Friday 20 February 2015, to the espurchasing@employment.gov.au mailbox.

 Feedback will assist the Department to finalise the Joint Charter and Service Guarantees for release in March 2015.

Joint Charter

The Employment Services Joint Charter of Deed Management (the Joint Charter) has been developed in consultation with industry peak bodies and will replace the existing Charter of Contract Management from July 2015.

The Joint Charter reflects the commitments of both the Department and provider’s in the management and delivery of employment services.

The Joint Charter will form part of the contracts offered to successful tenderers for Employment Services, Work for the Dole Coordinator Services, National Harvest Labour Information Services, the New Enterprise Incentive Scheme and Harvest Labour Services.

Adherence with, and performance against the Joint Charter, will be assessed as part of ongoing performance management and contract monitoring.

The commitments outlined in the Joint Charter reflect key priorities for all employment services from 1 July 2015 and focus providers and the Department on working collaboratively wherever possible to ensure that services meet the needs of job seekers, employers, communities and Government.
