The administered program

The Commission’s administered program facilitates the payment of judicial office holders’ remuneration, allowances and entitlements. The Commission receives special appropriations for the program, from which the Attorney–General’s Department makes payments.

Payments for 2018–19 amounted to $4.1 million, compared with $33.3 million in 2017–18. The decrease in payments was a result of the program no longer funding the remuneration of parliamentarians. Since 1 January 2018, parliamentarians have been funded by the Parliamentary Business Resources Act 2017, which is reported by the Department of Finance.

Payments made are reported in note 4.1c of the Commission’s financial statements.
