Public information

The provision of information to the public about the work of Senate committees is an area of ongoing focus for the Committee Office.

The office continued to work with SPIO on projects to improve systems for writing reports and managing the high volume of answers to questions on notice provided to committees during estimates. Progress was also made on providing live updates about Senate estimates hearings. This will be fully implemented in 2018–19.

Committee Office staff also supported the department’s seminar program by delivering training sessions to public servants and other members of the public about the operation of Senate committees.
