Note:

The figures in Column B above do not reflect a reduction in the availability of services to job seekers but, rather, the consequence of the amalgamation of the seven previous and separately delivered programs now being delivered through a single integrated service. This improved service will be delivered through more effective site arrangements rather than requiring job seekers to travel to a number of different locations. Under Job Services Australia the increased number of sites delivers increased accessibility for job seekers and employers.
