The Education Policy and Coordination Bureau (EPCB) was established through the redesignation of the Western Australian Office of Higher Education (WAOHE) on 23 November 1993; a recommendation of the Vickery Review of Education and Training.
The EPCB's mission was to facilitate the provision of an efficient system of higher education in Western Australia. A key function of the Bureau was to host the Aboriginal Education and Training Council, the Early Childhood Education Council, and the Higher Education Council.
On 1 July 1997, the Education Policy and Coordination Bureau was amalgamated with the Western Australian Office of Non-Government Education to form the Department of Education Services.
