ATSIC commits to decentralisation PDF Print E-mail

ATSIC has begun a restructuring of its operations, which will see the administration of major national programs shifted from Canberra to offices within the State and Territory Capitals.

Referred to as the Regionalisation of National Programs, the new initiative may see the separation of Language from the Broadcasting section, and relocation of its administration outside Canberra.

The new division will be Language Art and Culture; Heritage and Environment. Broadcasting has been moved to Alice Springs.

The reorganisation will see major staffing changes for the national programs, as Canberra employees are given the difficult choice of relocating to retain their current positions, or seeking alternative employment within ATSIC Canberra.
