School Financial Services current procedures

It is the business owner of the Grants Allowances Payments System (GAPS) and manages the payment of more than $3 billion annually in state and Commonwealth funds to state schools, non-state schools, central governing bodies, long day care centres, non-departmental organisations, parents, students and hostels. 

 

Interim arrangements as we transition to a redeveloped regi​​ster
A project has been initiated to improve the register’s user friendliness and functionality. 

The redesigned register will provide a contemporary approach to store, search, navigate and access departmental policies and procedures.

In the interim, as new policies and procedures are being developed with a revised content structure, they can be accessed from the table below.
