PM award for school funding model

The department’s delivery of a new funding model for NSW public schools has been recognised with a Prime Minister’s Award for Excellence in Public Sector Management.

The Resource Allocation Model (RAM), implemented by the Local Schools, Local Decisions team within the department, received the Commendation award at a ceremony on 30 October at the National Portrait Gallery. It’s a credit to the many staff who have been involved with the RAM since its inception.

The department was recognised for developing a new way of allocating funds to schools which increased transparency and flexibility in the way schools can use the funding.

The RAM has been fully implemented since 2017 and delivers a robust and sustainable process for providing needs-based funding to support public schools and students in NSW.

The awards aim to encourage and recognise best practice across all levels of government in Australia.
