RBA Glossary definition for agency banking

agency banking – Since 1 July 1999 all Australian Government departments and agencies have been responsible for their own individual banking arrangements. Under devolved banking arrangements, agencies are required to test the services previously provided by the Reserve Bank of Australia (RBA) against what is available from other financial institutions. However, the Australian Government's core account, the Official Public Account, remained with the RBA. A system sweeps balances of Australian Government departments and agencies from their transactional banker to the Official Public Account at the RBA each night.
