    10.2 Departmental Arrangements Notices

    Departmental functions and responsibilities are also the responsibility of the Premier. A Departmental Arrangements Notice is prepared to amalgamate part or parts of Departments, create an entity and add that entity to any Department and matters of a like nature, as specified within the Public Service Act 2008. Such actions are made by an Executive Council Minute and published in the Queensland Government Gazette. The administration of these matters is undertaken by the Public Service Commission.

    Consolidated Departmental Arrangements Notices are prepared on the Premier's instructions following a general election. In addition, amendments to Departmental Arrangements Notices are made from time to time with the approval of the Premier. Should changes be required to Ministerial responsibilities and Departmental arrangements, the Executive Council Secretariat and the Public Service Commission work together to co-ordinate Governor in Council consideration of both matters at the same time.

    For further information contact the Public Service Commission on (07) 3003 2800.
