The Queensland Treasury Annual Report 2020-21 is an integral part of our corporate governance framework and one of the main tools we use to ensure we are accountable to the Queensland Parliament and the community about our activities.
These annual financial statement requirements include the Minimum Reporting Requirements and assist agencies in the preparation of their financial statements. The requirements provide updates on new and revised accounting policies and standards and additional guidance and advice on the application of such policies and standards.
The Treasurer and Minister for Investment, the Honourable Cameron Dick MP, tabled the 2021-22 Queensland Budget in Parliament on Tuesday 15 June 2021.
Our Queensland Treasury Strategic Plan 2021-2025 outlines how we will achieve our vision of a strong economy for all Queenslanders. It reflects our purpose to drive government priorities through our expert advice and services. Our objectives aim to grow the Queensland economy and create jobs, deliver fiscal sustainability, equip our workforce for the future and drive public sector reform.
The purpose of the Cross-Agency Funding Framework (the Framework) is to outline the options available to Government and departments to fund cross-agency initiatives. Specifically, the Framework provides alternative models for how funding can be distributed to agencies, i.e. how best to get funding from the centralised Consolidated Fund out to departments (who then distribute funds to other entities where required). The models can be applied whether an initiative is funded from internal sources, from a reprioritisation of existing funding, or by new funding. Several agencies already utilise the Framework’s models, albeit on an informal basis.
The Framework provides for three broad types of funding models:
• Lead agency funding
• Multi-agency funding (simple), and
• Multi-agency funding (complex).
The funding approach adopted will depend upon the complexity surrounding the initiative, particularly the number of agencies involved.
The purpose of the Guidelines for the Formation, Acquisition and Post Approval Monitoring of Companies is to outline the various issues that should be addressed by agencies in seeking the Treasurer’s approval under section 88 and section 88A of the Financial Accountability Act 2009. Under section 58 of the Financial and Performance Management Standard 2019, a department must have regard to the company guidelines in applying for the Treasurer’s approval. The company guidelines reinforce the importance of establishing appropriate governance, accountability and monitoring frameworks for companies.
