From 4 July 2022, the Points Based Activation System (PBAS) is being introduced for all participants in Workforce Australia Services and Workforce Australia Online who have mutual obligation requirements.

The PBAS is a new and flexible approach to job seeker activation that provides individuals with choice and flexibility around the way they manage and meet their mutual obligation requirements in return for their income support.

On 12 April 2022, the Department held a webinar introducing the PBAS. This webinar provided:

  • an outline of the objectives of PBAS and the evidence that informed the development and final design of the PBAS framework for Workforce Australia
  • details of each element of the PBAS framework
  • demonstrated how job seekers will use PBAS to meet their mutual obligation requirements, and
  • an overview of the role and responsibilities of the provider and the Digital Services Contact Centre to support job seekers using PBAS.

Please note PBAS settings have been adjusted since this webinar was presented. Please refer to the updated list of points values for tasks and activities.
