Claims made recently in regards to the EOI underway for the Mornington agent are not correct. The people of Mornington will continue to have access to service centres in Frankston, Rosebud and Hastings.
In addition to these service centres, a tender for an agent to provide support and help with digital services is currently underway.
The agent tender advertisement until 30 June is standard practice as all Services Australia agent contracts are offered for a maximum of one year aligned with the financial year. All agent services are reviewed on a yearly basis based on demand and usage.
There is a commitment to agent services in Mornington over future years for as long as the Mornington community utilise the service.
