The Australian Government is undertaking the largest reform to employment services since 1998. The New Employment Services Model (new model) will commence in July 2022. The department has released an Exposure Draft for the New Employment Services Model 2022 Purchasing Arrangements.
The Exposure Draft describes the proposed purchasing arrangements and Statements of Requirements for each service under the new model, consistent with the reforms announced by the Australian Government in March 2019. The Exposure Draft and related resources are available.
The department will conduct industry briefings for the Exposure Draft in the form of live webinars. The industry briefings will be open to all stakeholders.
The department welcomes feedback on this Exposure Draft to inform the Request for Proposals.
