Scrutiny of Commonwealth expenditure

The Financial Framework (Supplementary Powers) Act 1997 (FF(SP) Act) and the Industry Research and Development Act 1986 (IRD Act) authorise the Commonwealth to spend public money on grants and programs specified in instruments made under those Acts. The scrutiny of such instruments is a key aspect of parliamentary scrutiny and control of Commonwealth expenditure.

To facilitate such scrutiny, chapter 3 of each Delegated Legislation Monitor outlines the nature and extent of Commonwealth expenditure that is authorised by the FF(SP) Act and the IRD Act, and specified in delegated legislation made under those Acts.

The committee will write to relevant legislation committees under Senate standing order 23(4) to alert those committees to the instruments related to the portfolios allocated to them.

Information on the total amount and duration of expenditure for a grant or program is based on descriptions provided in the explanatory statements to the instruments. This may not reflect the final amount or duration of actual Commonwealth expenditure on the grant or program.

Please note that instruments will only appear on the above pages once they have been considered and reported on by the committee. As a result, the instruments listed are those registered on the Federal Register of Legislation between 21 November 2019 and 28 May 2020.

For a complete, up-to-date list of all instruments specifying Commonwealth expenditure under the FF(SP) Act or IRD Act, please see the Federal Register of Legislation.
