Thank you for your letter of 7 March 2022 setting out the Government’s Statement of Expectations for the Aged Care Quality and Safety Commission (the Commission). I welcome and support the Government’s expectations of the Commission and I am pleased to provide the Commission’s Statement of Intent in response.
The Government’s Statement of Expectations and this Statement of Intent will be published on the Commission’s website and included on the Transparency Portal with the Commission’s corporate plan.

The Commission is unwavering in our resolve to deliver best practice regulation with the goal of protecting and improving the safety, health, wellbeing and quality of life of aged care consumers. We are also committed to implementing the Government’s significant, ongoing reforms to the aged care sector.
