Payment of Printing and Communications Invoices from the Office Budget

Ministerial and Parliamentary Services (M&PS) undertakes a post-print check of printing and communications material which is submitted for payment using the office budget, in addition to the optional pre-print assessment offered to Senators and Members.

Prepayments or progressive payments are not able to made except for certain website-related costs, on the basis that M&PS must be satisfied that a commercial service has been delivered prior to payment. For example, prepayment for advertising services is not within entitlement. Senators and Members would need to make the prepayment personally and then claim reimbursement following the conclusion of the advertising period.

Senators and Members will be personally liable to pay the costs of producing and/or distributing material that is found to be outside of the entitlement.
