Out-of-home care contract reform
Under the Keep Them Safe, the Government is committed to enhancing the out-of-home care (OOHC) service system. OOHC contract reform is one of the required activities to achieve this goal.
Key components of the OOHC contract reform project include:
- the establishment of fixed-price contracting for non-government service provision
- the development of new contractural arrangements (both short-term and long-term), including supporting documentation
- appropriate stakeholder engagement
- the development of an overarching framework or blueprint to improve negotiation and procurement practices
- a performance monitoring system to meet new contracting requirements.

OOHC caseload review
Community Services has commissioned an independent review of OOHC caseloads and casework in Community Services undertaken by Ernst & Young.
See more about the OOHC caseload review report.
A non-government consultative group has been established under the CPAG to provide high-level advice on this project.
