Division Responsibilities
The role of Quality and Assurance Division is to ensure that senior Australians receive aged care

services that are high quality and safe, and funding is used appropriately.

Branch Responsibilities
The purpose of the newly established Program Assurance Branch is to assure value for money of

program funds for the Government/taxpayers and aged care recipients. The work of the Branch is

integral to assuring that maximum program funds are utilised for direct services and care to senior

Australians. The predominant functions of the Branch are focussed on the Home Care Packages

(HCP) Program that is being significantly expanded as a consequence of Budget 2021-22. Branch

functions comprise establishing and undertaking annual in-house program assurance reviews of up

to 500 HCP providers per year, supporting dissemination of assurance findings and learnings through

a Community of Practice, and managing fraud, misuse of funds and associated investigations and

actions. The Branch is also responsible for national leadership and program assurance of the Aged

Care Funding Instrument (ACFI) Review Program and associated policy and operations, working in

partnership with Network Office teams in most capital cities. This significant Program regulates

subsidy claims made by approved providers of residential aged care.

Section Responsibilities
The Home Care Program Assurance Reviews Section has responsibility for the creation and

implementation of the Home Care Program Assurance Framework, development of an annual review

plan and conducting reviews of up to 500 providers each financial year.

The reviews will help determine whether home care providers are delivering services in line with

program requirements and that the Government’s expenditure achieves value for money.

The Home Care Provider Education Section is a new function that aims to improve approved home

care providers understanding of the Home Care Packages Program. A new Community of Practice

needs to be established to encourage collaboration between the Department and providers. The

outcomes of the program assurance reviews will also inform continuous improvement and

consistency of practice.

  • provide support by reviewing the provider documentation and conducting interviews with
providers to assess whether services are being delivered as expected
