Agencies subordinate to the Department include the Regional Network, and the five federal Land Councils.

The Department for Indigenous Affairs is led by the Associate Secretary for Indigenous Affairs, currently Finn Pratt, who reports to the Minister for Indigenous Affairs, currently Shayne Neumann.
