Accessing the Central Repository
The NSW Department of Finance, Services and Innovation (DFSI) maintains a central repository of financial assessment reports. This helps manage risks to government associated with changes in the financial position of a company contracted to undertake construction work. It allows agencies to share assessment reports. Agencies can search the Central Repository to find if a financial assessment report has already been commissioned and request a copy.
