Meeting the Senate Order on Departmental and Agency Contracts Listings
On 20 June 2001, the Senate agreed to an Order for each Minister to table a letter of advice to their respective agencies ensuring that a list of contracts must be placed on the internet through the agency’s home page.
From 1 July 2017, the Senate Order also applied to corporate Commonwealth entities (CCEs) including ARENA. The estimated cost of complying with this order is $10,490 based on the estimated number of hours involved to collect, analyse and compile the information and applying salary costs and on-costs.
