PDF (488.1KB)  Word (80.2KB)

The Budget protocols agreement for the Office of the Legislative Assembly and Officers of the Legislative Assembly set out detailed arrangements for the development and consideration of budget appropriations for the Office of the Legislative Assembly, the Auditor-General and the Electoral Commissioner.

The protocols are intended to strengthen the application of the separation of powers doctrine and acknowledge and support the financial initiative of the Executive (the right of the Executive to develop and frame appropriations for consideration by the Legislature).

The protocols were first developed in the Eighth Assembly and applied only in relation to the budget appropriations of the Office of the Legislative Assembly. They have since been expanded to include the Auditor-General and the Electoral Commissioner, both of whom are Officers of the Legislative Assembly.

The protocols were tabled by the Speaker of the Legislative Assembly, Joy Burch MLA, on 18 September 2018.
