    3.11 Public Report of Ministerial Office Expenses

    The Financial Accountability Act 2009 (part 2, division 2, section 12 Report of Ministerial Office Expenses, refers) requires that on a six monthly basis, a report of expenditure for each ministerial office, in summary format, is tabled in Parliament by the Premier. Expenses include costs for the Minister and staff, and office which is shown separately.

    These reports will be due for tabling within five sitting days after 15 February (mid-year report) and by 31 August (end of year report).

    The report to be tabled following the end of each financial year will be audited and certified by the Queensland Audit Office.


    Ministerial Services will prepare statements as soon as possible after the end of each six monthly period for each Minister and the Premier to review and approve.

    Consolidated reports are to be provided by the Director-General to the Premier by 15 February and 15 August each year.

    A copy of the mid-year report will be provided to the Queensland Audit Office for information.

    In the event of a change of government, the public report for the former Ministerial and former Opposition Offices will be certified by the Director-General, Department of the Premier and Cabinet.

    An example of the report is shown below.
