Minister to inform Parliament of certain events

Section 72 of the PGPA Act requires that a Minister where the Commonwealth or a Commonwealth entity, which the Minister has responsibility for, is or becomes involved with a company or relevant body. 

Section 26 of the PGPA Rule sets out the particulars of the notice required under section 72 of the PGPA Act.  

The guidance RMG-204 Minister to inform Parliament of certain events – describes the types of events that require the responsible Minister to inform Parliament and provides information on the particulars for tabling a notice in Parliament.  In addition, the guidance provides a template that may be used when preparing a notice to Parliament.

To support the ongoing monitoring of entities being created, Commonwealth entities will need to provide Finance with a copy of the section 72 notice that has been tabled in Parliament.

The copy of the section 72 notice and any related enquiries should be emailed to governancepolicy@finance.gov.au.
