Housing, Homelessness and Sport

Housing Services

The Fair absence from your home policy gives tenants flexibility in how long they can be away from their home for, without having to seek departmental approval. New application procedures will mean that tenants will no longer need to choose between public or community housing when applying for housing assistance. The Fair expectations of behaviour policy considers complex needs or mental health conditions, by referring these tenants for extra support that they may need.

The Homelessness Program Guidelines, Specifications and Requirements provide departmental staff and funded service providers with information regarding the aims and purpose of the Homelessness Program and its operational requirements and expectations.

The Queensland Homelessness Information Platform (QHIP) helps manage demand for homelessness services by supporting clients in Queensland to access appropriate services based on a consistent assessment, referral and prioritisation process ensuring clients gain access to services without repeating their story to multiple providers. QHIP has been established as a protected system and all information sharing within QHIP must comply with the Information Privacy Act 2009.

Sport and Recreation

Sport and Recreation policy documents and procedures are available on request and will be provided except where an exemption may apply or where disclosure is contrary to the public interest under the Right to Information Act 2009.

Building Policy and Asset Management

The Queensland government asbestos management policy for its assets applies to all government departments.

The Strategic Asset Management Framework (SAMF) Best practice guidelines for the management of Queensland Government buildings provides a systematic approach to effective government building management.

The SAMF complements other whole-of-Government policies and guidelines, including the Capital Works Management Framework, the Maintenance Management Framework, and the Building Asset Performance Framework.

Accommodation Office

The Office accommodation management framework (OAMF) supports agencies in all aspects of their acquisition, management and utilisation of office accommodation. The OAMF incorporates processes for office accommodation planning, space management, fit out and occupancy.

QFleet

QFleet policies and strategies outline how QFleet will transition to a more environmentally friendly Queensland Government motor vehicle fleet.

Portfolio Strategy

Procurement

The Queensland Government Procurement Strategy applies whenever Queensland government purchases goods and services, commissions major projects and infrastructure, or builds the schools, housing and other facilities that each of our regional communities need. The Strategy is supported by the Queensland Procurement Policy that applies across all government agencies and government owned corporations.
