Commonwealth programmes guidance note
Sometimes it is necessary for the Australian Government to place significant requirements on businesses, community organisations and individuals that seek access to a government programme. The Government’s aim is to remove unnecessary requirements, reducing the regulatory burden for the ‘client’.
This guidance note supplements The Australian Government Guide to Regulatory Impact Analysis by providing additional information to help you understand whether a Regulation Impact Statement is required for proposed changes to a programme. Programmes can include government benefits, grants, procurement, or cost recovery arrangements. This note provides information on how to quantify the regulatory costs of such proposals in line with the Regulatory Burden Measurement framework.
