Is Funder Reporting Undermining Service Delivery? Compliance reporting requirements of Aboriginal Community Controlled Health Organisations in Victoria
Aboriginal Community Controlled Health Organisations (ACCHOs) have been operating in Australia since the 1970s. They are governed by community-elected boards, vary in size and scope, and provide access to safe, appropriate and effective services for their communities. There are 27 ACCHOs across Victoria, all of which are members of the Victorian Community Controlled Health Organisation (VACCHO). Victorian ACCHOs range from small organisations with a limited number of core programs to large multi-million-dollar organisations providing an extensive range of health, wellbeing and community services. The latter obtain funding from a range of sources and have complex reporting requirements.
