ASC organisation overview

Who are we

The Australian Sports Commission (ASC) is the Australian Government’s leading sport agency that develops, supports and invests in sport at all levels. It was established in 1985 and operates under the Australian Sports Commission Act 1989.

The ASC is governed by a board of commissioners appointed by the Minister for Sport. The Board determines the ASC’s overall direction, decides on allocation of resources and policy for delegated decisions, and is accountable to the Minister for Sport.

Our purpose

The ASC aims to strengthen Australian sport - to enable more people to play sport and Australian athletes to succeed on the world stage.

Our structure

The ASC is structured into four divisions, as represented diagrammatically below, current as at October 2017.
