    Summary Information:
    Indigenous Coordination Centres (ICCs) have been established at 30 sites in metropolitan, regional and remote Australia. Prior to the abolition of the Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Commission (ATSIC), the ICCs were ATSIC and Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Services (ATSIS) Regional and State Offices. The ICCs now operate as whole-of-government centres which house staff from a range of departments which deliver services to Indigenous Australians.
    Detailed Information:
    The ICCs' function is to coordinate the delivery of both Indigeous-specific and mainstream programs at the regional level as well as to negotiate agreements with local communities based on the principles of partnership and shared responsibility.

    Ultimately, the ICCs are to house staff from all agencies which administer Indigenous programs. This will include some not previously administered by ATSIC and ATSIS such as health and education. In some instances, State and Territory government staff may join the ICCs.

    Managers of the ICCs will be appointed by the Office of Indigenous Policy Coordination (OIPC) which forms a part of the Department of Immigration and Multicultural and Indigenous Affairs (DIMIA). The role and responsibilities of ATSIC Regional Councils, which have previously directed and overseen the work of ATSIS Regional and State Offices, will continue until the the close of June 2005.
