Departmental Gift Register

Following advice issued by the Australian Public Service Commission in October 2019, the department is required to disclose all gifts or benefits accepted which are valued over $AUD100.00 (excluding GST).

The principles underpinning the disclosure requirements are:

  • that agency heads are meeting public expectations of integrity, accountability, independence, transparency and professionalism in relation to gifts and benefits; and
  • that there is consistency in relation to agency heads’ management of gifts and benefits across APS agencies and Commonwealth entities and companies.

The gift register is updated on a quarterly basis.
