Benefits of Smart Hub
The benefits of Smart Hub to local governments include:
A convenient single portal
Local governments can communicate with the department without having to retain a range of separate email addresses as used previously.
Lodge data online
Local governments no longer need to email or mail hard copy documents to the department and/or the Minister (and the department needs to manually enter less data on behalf of local governments).
More efficient data collection
Minimal duplication of data collection previously sought by different parts of the department.
Online applications mean local governments can seek extensions/approvals faster and the department can respond faster with a decision.
Using Smart Hub
The following documents and reports can be lodged via Smart Hub:
- Compliance Audit Review
- Annual Financial Statements
- Western Australian Grants Commission returns
- Requests for extensions of time
