PBO budget statements
As the committee responsible for parliamentary oversight of the Parliamentary Budget Office (PBO), the Joint Committee of Public Accounts and Audit is required by legislation to consider the PBO’s draft budget estimates. Prior to the federal budget, the Parliamentary Budget Officer submits a briefing, which includes a copy of the draft budget estimates, to the Committee. On Budget day each year the Chair, on behalf of the Committee, makes a statement on whether the PBO has been given sufficient funding to carry out its mandate. A corresponding statement is delivered to the Senate on behalf of the Committee.
