Successes we've delivered!
e-invoicing has been adopted through the SDO Shared Service Hub. This improves productivity and data quality and reduces fraud. It enriches business-to-business, business-to-government and government-to-government interactions. This has also resulted in improved business cash flow through faster payment times and reduces the transaction costs and handling errors. Finance and Services Australia were the first Commonwealth entities enabled to receive e-invoices from suppliers, making payments within five days as per the revised payments policy.
Support for staff mobility surge
In support of staff seconded to Services Australia during the COVID-19 pandemic, the SDO released a new cloud-based service called HUB Cloud supporting secure and flexible access for staff to view payslips and enter attendance times when located within another entity, without the need to log into their home agency network. This enabled business continuity and connectivity with their home agency management during their secondment.

It delivers a more streamlined, online experience for users booking and managing travel.
