What are the benefits of registering?
The Department of Human Services is at the forefront of the practical implementation of internet-facing applications. The future business vision is to provide an increasing range of services and functions leveraging the internet as a vehicle to conduct business with all entities/individuals with whom the Department deals with.
Depending on your access, registered users representing funded agencies will have access to an increasing number of internet based applications that will assist them to carry out their service delivery functions and day to day dealings with the department.
Registration also enables you to get, for example, up-to date information about the Department; participation in online discussions; and advance notice about forthcoming consultations and events.
