Office of the Secretary for Justice and Border Control


The Office of the Secretary for Justice and Border Control (JBC Secretariat) as the main office is the engine room of the whole Department. This is where:

  2. Sections of DJBC submit action and budget proposals; 
  3. the final endorsement for any proposed activity that is to occur within the Department is attained; and

The JBC Secretariat has supported the smooth running of all Sections under DJBC by ensuring that:

  2. all key positions are advertised and filled; 
  3. leave credits are readily available for employees to plan and apply for the types of leave available to them; and

An amount of AUD5,443,439 has been secured as the DJBC budget for the fiscal year July 2021 to June 2022. This enables the DJBC Sections to implement work plans efficiently with the sufficient availability of approved funding.

Restructuring of the Department

DJBC has undergone an overall restructure which saw the reclassification of 79 positions and reorganisation and creation of 17 Sections. This restructuring has ensured more employment opportunities for any person interested to work in the services provided for in the justice system and border control as well as created a career path for capacity building and professional development. Furthermore, the restructure will enhance performance and productivity in that the roles and expectations of officers have become uniformed and straightforward.



Way Forward

  • The JBC Secretariat faces many administrative challenges having 17 Sections to manage and oversee. However, restructuring was the first step to solving the problem so that it is easier to monitor and evaluate the progress of the Department as a whole.
  • It is envisaged that policy reform will gradually take place to positively facilitate and support the maintenance of staff attendance rate which currently is at 85% on average.
  • The Secretariat anticipates a monitoring and evaluation system that will increase productivity of services provided by each Section. Currently, every head of Section are required to submit weekly reports on the progress of the specific work plans that were presented at the beginning of the year.
