As councils share many common responsibilities and carry out similar functions and activities, there are opportunities to jointly share knowledge, skills and expertise.
The benefits would include:

- an increase of service quality
- the improvement of community outcomes.
Information is often shared inefficiently and generally within individual municipalities, so there is a large duplication of work and advice, which is often unnecessary.
Government Shared Services works exclusively with local government to implement shared service initiatives.
