Federal financial relations

This website provides information on the Intergovernmental Agreement on Federal Financial Relations and the federal financial relations framework to which it gives effect. It also provides guidance to drafters of new agreements on the operation of the Intergovernmental Agreement and how to develop agreements, including templates and process maps.

Note: National Cabinet agreed on 29 May 2020 that the Council on Federal Financial Relations would be responsible for all Commonwealth-State funding agreements, including reviewing the agreements process. Before commencing work on an agreement please contact your usual Treasury contact or fgffu@treasury.gov.au for the latest information.
