Structure, organisations and key people
.The purpose of the Government Online Directory is to provide a guide to the structure, organisations and key people in the Australian Government. Information in the site is grouped under the four key arms of government: the Commonwealth Parliament; the Governor-General; Courts and Judges; and Australian Government departments and agencies.
The Directory encourages government transparency by ensuring the public has access to information about how the Government is structured and the interrelationships between its various components. The site encourages increased government accountability and engagement with the public by providing contact details for agencies and senior officials..
The Department of Finance and Deregulation is responsible for the ongoing operation and development of the online directory.
The information in the directory is maintained by a network of updaters located within Australian Government organisations who are responsible for ensuring that the information for their organisation is current and accurate.
The Department of Finance and Deregulation makes this information available in good faith with the expectation that it is appropriately maintained by the author organisations. The Department of Finance and Deregulation does not warrant that the information is accurate, comprehensive or up to date. You should make your own inquiries before relying on the information in any important matter.
The last reviewed date shows the most recent date that information was entered or changed. It is important to note, however, that some information in the Directory does not require updating very often. Accordingly, if a review date is not recent it does not necessarily indicate that the information is out of date.
The online directory is not a list of all Australian Government public servants: it lists only senior staff information provided by government agencies.
