We have prepared a fact sheet on the Commonwealth Simple Grant Agreement (part of the Department of Finance`s model collection). The Commonwealth Simple Grant Agreement is based on the previous Low Risk Grant Agreement and replaces it and contains other formulation options for the complementary conditions. Organizations should obtain independent legal advice on the terms and practical implications of their Commonwealth grant agreements. As part of the Australian government`s initiative to reduce bureaucracy, the Department of Finance has developed a grant proposal without subsidies, which should be used by companies for the conclusion of low-risk subsidies. The Department of Finance has published a series of proposals for public grant agreements that will be used by Commonwealth bodies when concluding grant agreements in 2018. These templates were developed to replace the agency-specific models for grant agreements, including proposals from the Department of Social Services (DSS). Funded organizations must ensure that they are aware of the terms and conditions of all documents, as they together form the Commonwealth Simple Grant Agreement.
