The Public Safety Business Agency (PSBA) was established in 2014 to provide high quality corporate services to Queensland's public safety agencies to support them to deliver quality community services.
The PSBA’s core responsibilities are to: provide professional ICT, financial, procurement, asset management and human resources services to the Queensland Police Service (QPS), Queensland Fire and Emergency Services (QFES) and Office of the Inspector-General Emergency Management (IGEM). The PSBA also provides ICT services to the Queensland Ambulance Service and Queensland Corrective Services. In addition, the PSBA currently incorporates and provides Queensland Government air services, and Commonwealth Games business support.
The PSBA is governed by the PSBA Board of Management, which was formally established on 15 September 2016. The Board currently consists of the following members: QFES Commissioner Katarina Carroll (Chair); QPS Commissioner Ian Stewart; and an appointed external member, Geoff Waite, Executive General Manager, Risk and Intelligence, Queensland Treasury.
The Board’s functions include providing leadership and oversight of the PSBA. The Board is supported by the PSBA Chief Operating Officer, whose role is to help the Board perform its functions and be responsible for the day-to-day operations of the PSBA. The Chief Operating Officer reports to the Board and must give effect to any direction of the Board.
It is an exciting time for the PSBA as it works in partnership with its clients to help them deliver quality community services. The PSBA Strategic Plan describes the actions that will be taken by PSBA to support its clients under the three pillars of Our Clients, Our Business and Our People, and gives PSBA a clear strategic framework for the years ahead.
