Indeed, this is how it was.

Per the earlier link for AGSVA:
The Australian Government Security Vetting Agency (AGSVA) is located within 
the Department of Defence and is the central agency for the processing, 
evaluating and granting of security clearances for the Commonwealth. The AGSVA 
conducts clearances for the majority of Government under a fee-for-service 
All clearances granted by AGSVA are portable across all agencies (excluding 
exempt agencies). This single, consistent approval has improved the clearance 
process by: 
- providing one clearance that is effective across government; 
- removing inconsistencies between previous clearance processes; and 
- increasing the efficiency for all parties. 

So the answer is yes, the act is more together.
