What QRIDA can do for government

We are a specialist administrator of government financial assistance programs, including loans, grants, rebates and subsidies.  We administer programs for government agencies at all levels throughout Australia.

Queensland Rural and Industry Development Authority - your proven delivery partner

Increasing community expectations are driving more intense scrutiny of public spending.  Government agencies are under constant pressure to ensure public funds are being used appropriately.  Having confidence in the people, systems and processes that govern the distribution of taxpayers' money is more important than ever.

Supported by 23 years experience administering government loans, grants, rebates and subsidies, the Queensland Rural and Industry Development Authority (QRIDA) understands the unique requirements of government agencies and the responsibilities involved in delivering financial assistance programs.

QRIDA mitigates administration risk for agencies by ensuring delivery of programs to the highest governance, performance and accountability standards.

Queensland Treasury has endorsed QRIDA's credentials by appointing QRIDA as a preferred provider on the Queensland Government's grant management system and services panel.

To qualify for appointment, QRIDA's systems and services were assessed as:

  • supporting best practice grant administration;
  • providing clear benefits to government users;
  • requiring minimal customisation;
  • reducing and simplifying business practices;
  • complying with legislation and policy requirements; and
  • having the ability to adapt and change to restructures and strategic re-prioritisation.

QRIDA is continually building its capabilities through the delivery of new programs and services.  Over the 2014-15 financial year, QRIDA successfully delivered six new programs for the Queensland, Northern Territory and Australian Governments.

Our high quality standards are confirmed by numerous program owner surveys.  The most recent survey in 2015 established that 100 per cent of program owners are satisfied or very satisfied with QRIDA's services. Government agencies QRIDA has worked with include:
