delivery arrangements to the Jervis Bay Territory. The NSW Government has decided not to continue work on options for future service delivery arrangements. This decision will have no impact on the current delivery of government services to the Jervis Bay Territory community.

The Memorandum of Understanding between the ACT and Australian Governments is currently being reviewed with the objective of developing a new agreement to provide for state-type services to Jervis Bay Territory. As a part of this process, the ACT and Australian Governments are working closely with the Jervis Bay Territory community to identify opportunities to improve service outcomes.

2016-17: $3,415,770
