Department of Finance and Deregulation

As a principal partner of the ADC Forum, the Department of Finance and Deregulation (Finance) proudly sponsors the ADC Future Summit 2012.

As a central agency of the Australian Government, the Department of Finance and Deregulation plays an important role in assisting government across a wide range of policy areas to ensure its outcomes are met, particularly with regard to expenditure and financial management, deregulation reform and the operations of government.

Essential services delivered by Finance include supporting the delivery of the Australian Government Budget, the ongoing management of the Australian Government’s non-defence domestic property portfolio. Finance is also responsible for implementing the Australian Government’s deregulation agenda and the financial framework for Australian Government Agencies.

Additionally, Finance provides entitlements advice and support to parliamentarians and their employees, maintains shareholder oversight for Government Business Enterprises, provides general insurance services to government agencies and promotes improved risk management.

Finance also provides strategic advice, guidance and service provision for the productive application of new and existing information and communication technologies to government operations.
