From 1 July 2016, the corporate services functions of the Federal Court, Family Court and Federal Circuit Court will merge into a single administrative entity. This follows the passage of the Courts Administration Legislation Amendment Act 2016 earlier in 2016.

Corporate services include communications, finance, human resources, information technology, procurement and contract management, property, risk oversight and management and statistics.

Each court will have a separate budget allocation and maintain their distinct statutory identities.
