Senate Order 15 of June 2008 requires all Australian Government departments and agencies to provide a list of all appointments made by the government (through Executive Council, Cabinet and ministers) to statutory authorities, executive agencies, advisory boards, government business enterprises and all other Commonwealth bodies, including the term of the appointment and remuneration for the position. A further amendment to the order, agreed by the Senate on 12 May 2009, requires departments and agencies to include the place of permanent residence by state or territory of appointees.
The order also requires departments and agencies to produce a list of all existing vacancies awaiting filling by government appointment to statutory authorities, executive agencies, advisory boards, government business enterprises and all other Commonwealth bodies.
The lists are tabled in the Senate three times a year, no later than seven days before the commencement of:
- Budget estimates
- Supplementary Budget estimates
- Additional estimates
The reporting period commences on the day after the previous period ends and extends to two weeks before the next list is due for tabling.
Further information on Senate Order 15 requirements is available on the Department of the Prime Minister and Cabinet’s web site.
