All Australian governments signed off on the National Sport and Active Recreation Policy Framework in 2011. This policy framework prescribed generic policy roles for national and state sport organisations.
There has been no discussion triggered by a State, territory or the federal government that these need amendment or revision.
In collaboration, alignment and partnership with their national sport and active recreation organisation.
The state’s investment level in sports will be premised on the following characteristics being evident in SSA operations:
*Note SSAs should derive fair and reasonable financial support from
NSO commercial arrangements, including national sponsorship. This is
especially applicable where such arrangements source Western Australian
talent, intellectual property and content within their business models.
The primary support to SSAs is through the three sport and recreation
portfolio entities; Department of Local Government, Sport and Cultural
Industries, Western Australian Institute of Sport and VenuesWest. There
are several other departments of state and/or statutory authorities
(Lotterywest, WA Tourism Commission and Healthway) that also support
SSAs directly and indirectly.
The nature of investment by the state government into sport includes
grant funding support for a comprehensive range of state-wide program
initiatives. It also includes capital funding support for state,
regional and local sporting facilities, either directly or in
partnership with local governments.
The state government will include all current funding in deliberations of ongoing support to SSAs and NSOs.
