The Parliamentary Business Resources Act 2017 (PBR Act) imposes obligations on how parliamentarians use resources.
There are a number of office types provided under the PBR Act. MaPS assists with setting up offices, relocations, refurbishments, office equipment and maintenance, as well as security.
Parliamentarians are provided with an annual budget for office expenses under the PBR Act. This budget covers items such as stationery, printing and communication, nationhood materials and some ICT and telecommunications.
Parliamentarians receive insurance, injury compensation and legal assistance in relation to the conduct of their parliamentary business. Additional public resources may be provided to you in exceptional circumstances.
The Parliamentary Business Resources Act 2017 (PBR Act), together with the Regulations, determinations of the Remuneration Tribunal, and determinations and delegations made by the Minister or the Prime Minister under the PBR Act, establishes the framework to provide work expenses to current and former parliamentarians.
