Queensland Treasury (Treasury) is committed to the values of the Queensland Public Service and to recruiting and retaining the best people for the job. We hope the information in this guide helps you better understand the recruitment and selection process and with the preparation of your application.

Treasury is at the heart of the Queensland Government, providing world-class economic advice and financial services. We are responsible for driving better financial and economic outcomes for Queensland, so Queenslanders can prosper now and into the future. Working in a central agency, our people develop solutions that have lasting impact on prosperity for Queenslanders.

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.
