Reappointment of IPEA's CEO

Senator the Hon Mathias Cormann, Minister for Finance has today announced the reappointment of Ms Annwyn Godwin as Chief Executive Officer of the Independent Parliamentary Expenses Authority (IPEA) until 31 December 2024.

On behalf of the Members of IPEA, I congratulate Ms Godwin on her reappointment.

Ms Godwin’s leadership over the past two years has been outstanding. During this time IPEA has administered the new principles-based legislation for travel expenses, provided independent assurance and transparency on work expenses and embedded a positive, helpful and innovative workplace culture. It has also established an award winning educational program about the new principle-based framework for parliamentarians and their staff. This is important foundation building work for what is still a relatively new organisation.

The Members look forward to continuing to work with Ms Godwin and her team as we steer IPEA through its next phase of development.

Further information on the important role of IPEA is available in the Annual Report 2018-19.

Chair - Ms Jillian Segal AO
