The Standard Suite of Contracts is used by all Queensland government authorities as the basis for contracts for the provision of social, economic and cultural services, for the provision of funding to community organisations and for sponsorship agreements. There are two streamlined agreements currently used by the department: this signed service agreement contains funding, activity and performance requirements for the Metro North Hospital and Health Service 2019-2022. The current service contract covers the period from 1 July 2019 to 30 June 2022. All changes made to the service contract during this period are recorded in an act of amendment. The financing plan is part of the details of the funding and service and imposes the funding and services to be provided as well as the reporting obligations.

This information can be used to identify service delivery needs and gaps and support the department`s future investment decisions.
