Management / Tracking

Parliamentarians are provided with up to five travel-related budgets or limits:

  • Unscheduled transport in large electorates
  • Electorate support budget
  • Family reunion travel (Canberra and local area)
  • Family reunion travel (Australia-wide)
  • Travel allowance for electorate business outside the electorate, and/or party political duties outside Canberra.

Expenditure and usage must be tracked by parliamentarians to ensure that budgets or limits are not exceeded.

IPEA provides a range of reports to assist parliamentarians with tracking their budgets or limits, including monthly management reports, publicly-reported expenditure reports, up to date budget reports and other reports on request.
