To everyone interested in the work of parliamentary committees:

It is through parliamentary committees that much of the detailed work of the Commonwealth Parliament is conducted.

Parliamentary committees scrutinise the operation of government departments, examine policy issues and review some legislation before it is enacted.

They also provide an opportunity for the community to be directly involved in the work of the Parliament.

If you want to become involved in the work of committees, this document will help by explaining the type and standards of service you can expect from committee staff in the Department of the House of Representatives.

These standards represent a commitment from us to provide quality information and advice about the committees we support.

We intend to report annually on our performance and would welcome any comments you have on the services we provide.
