The Government will provide $9.1 million over four years (including operating funding of $3.6 million over four years) to implement a web‑based whole‑of‑government electronic grants advertising, application and reporting system for use by agencies and grant applicants as a single point of reference (Australian Government Grants System).

The Australian Government Grants System will interface with agency grants management and payments systems to provide for the transfer of application information to, and reporting information from, agency systems. It will be the central interface for the non‑government sector with the Government on grants.

The Government will fund essential maintenance work required for the Lodge and the John Gorton Building, Canberra. The work for the Lodge was initially due to be undertaken in 2012‑13 but had been deferred due to technical challenges associated with refurbishment of a heritage building of this nature. Funding will also be provided for urgent maintenance work required to address the deterioration of the facade of the John Gorton Building.

The maintenance work will ensure compliance with the Building Code of Australia, the Workplace Health and Safety Act 2011 and the Environment Protection and Biodiversity Protection Act 1997.

The cost of this measure is not for publication due to commercial‑in‑confidence considerations.

Further information on maintenance work required for the Lodge can be found in the press release of 17 December 2012 issued by the Special Minister of State.
