NSW Government funding agreements

NSW Human Services Agreement

The Human Services Agreement is a NSW Government document that sets out the standard terms and conditions that apply to organisations (referred to as non-government organisations on ProcurePoint) that deliver human services funded by NSW government agencies.

From 1 August 2017, the Human Services Agreement will apply to all organisations funded by a NSW government agency to deliver ‘human services’. Human services are defined by the NSW Government as programs, facilities or services provided to meet the health, welfare and social needs of individuals, families and communities.

More information about the Human Services Agreement can be found on the ProcurePoint website and in this NSW Procurement Board Direction.

Not-for-profit Law has developed a guide to the Human Services Agreement providing information on the key obligations of organisations under the Human Services Agreement, and includes checklists to help organisations comply with their obligations.
