The initial service standards below have been introduced to give you clarity about the service delivery that Finance strives for, and what you can expect when you access a service.

Staff are encouraged to review the standards and may give feedback on the delivery of the services against the standards outlined below.

As part of our commitment to continuous improvement, these standards may be revised and adjusted based on staff feedback.  Feedback on the service standards can be given via email to ServiceImprovement@acu.edu.au

A more detailed explanation of the service standards, including dependencies as well as service recipients’ obligations when accessing a service, is available in a downloadable file (PDF, 259kb).
