The Grants Administration Guide (the Guide) has been issued in response to recommendations of the Review of Grants Administration in NSW.
The Guide provides:
- an overview of the grants administration process in NSW
- overarching principles for NSW Government grants
- mandatory requirements for administering NSW Government grants.
The 2022 Review of Grants Administration in NSW made a number of recommendations to improve how the NSW Government delivers grants.
The Guide aims to harmonise grants administration processes across government and ensure that the key principles of transparency, accountability and probity are embedded in the way NSW Government grants are delivered.
It is now mandatory for all NSW Government agencies and ministerial offices to implement the practices and procedures in the Guide. This is in accordance with the Premier’s Memorandum.
The Grants Administration in NSW Ministerial Offices Protocol provides information on how NSW Government ministers and staff must comply with the Grants Administration Guide.
