The Australian Government Organisations Register (the Register) provides information on the function, composition, origins and other details of 1,311 Australian Government entities and bodies.
The bodies covered are described in the Type of bodies guide. The scope is based on the characteristics used to describe the 12 main types of bodies identified for classification purposes.
The Register is based on information collected by portfolio departments.
The online searchable version of Australian Government Organisations Register (AGOR) is now located on the Australian Government Directory - AGOR.
Directory.gov.au combines three sources of information relating to organisational information under a single location. The information is sourced from the Organisation and Appointments Register (OAR) system which contains the Australian Government Organisation Register (AGOR), government appointments meeting the requirements for Senate Order 15 tabling purposes and Directory's key contacts for the Senior Executive Service (SES) officers.
