Australian Sports Commission

Health and Aged Care
The Australian Sports Commission (ASC) is the Australian Government agency responsible for supporting and investing in sport at all levels. The ASC’s role is to increase involvement in sport and enable continued international sporting success through leadership and development of a cohesive and effective sports sector, targeted financial support and the operation of the Australian Institute of Sport (AIS). The ASC invests in National Sporting Organisations (NSOs) and National Sporting Organisations for People with Disability (NSODs), working with them to achieve greater sport participation outcomes, industry growth and generating a competitive advantage for Australian athlete success at the Olympic, Paralympic and Commonwealth Games, delivering key programs in line with the Australian Government’s sport policy objectives. The ASC also identifies opportunities to work strategically in partnership with sports and organisations that enhance the broader Australian sport sector. The ASC is governed by a board of commissioners appointed by the Minister for Sport. The board determines the ASC's overall direction, decides on the actual allocation of resources, develops policy for delegated decisions, and is accountable to the Minister of Sport and to Parliament.
