FaCS' organisational structure reflects its strategic themes, with responsibilities divided across strategic outcomes. The state and territory office network takes advantage of its specialist expertise and locational advantages to help FaCS achieve its outcomes.
Four key departmental outputs are produced across FaCS. Three outputs cover the policy and management of the delivery of the administered outputs to the community.
The service delivery output links directly to the administered outputs or items in each output group. The Child Support Agency was the main service delivery arm of FaCS in 2003–04. The remainder of the service delivery output is provided by Centrelink or other external organisations. CRS Australia continues to provide rehabilitation services for FaCS.
