Learning Outcomes

What will the session cover?

Topics covered in this session include:

  • your role as an office manager
  • an overview of your parliamentarian's work expenses
  • work expense budgets
  • monthly management reports
  • what you’ll need to know about staffing issues.

This course is available to all MOP(S) Act employees.


All courses offered as part of the Professional Development Program (PDP) under the Commonwealth Members of Parliament Staff Enterprise Agreement 2016-2019 are provided free of charge. However, the costs of any travel by electorate employees may be met from within your employing parliamentarian’s Electorate Support Budget.

Electorate employees of parliamentarians whose electorate offices are outside the greater metropolitan area of capital cities should check their eligibility to use additional trips for training. Employees accessing these trips should clearly mark their Staff Travelling and/or Motor Vehicle Allowance Claim as being for attendance at PDP, to ensure that the costs are not debited against the Electorate Support Budget.
