On commencing operations in July 2012, the Funding Body did not have its own employment framework in place, and consequently all staff were employed under the Commonwealth Department of Health’s Enterprise Agreement 2011–12, and seconded to the Funding Body. To employ staff independently, the Funding Body developed its own 24(1) Determination pursuant to the Public Service Act 1999.
On becoming a stand–alone agency on 24 June 2013, the Funding Body was able to engage and employ staff directly under the Public Service Act 1999.
In preparation for employing its own staff, the Funding Body developed a Workforce Management Plan, a Human Resources Strategic Framework and Human Resources Delegations.
