Portfolio Charging Reviews

The Charging Framework incorporates the existing schedule of portfolio charging reviews (available below), as agreed by the Government and published on 1 July 2014. Departments of state must conduct periodic reviews of all existing and potential charging activities within their portfolios at least every five years, in accordance with the schedule.  The schedule may be updated by the Finance Minister from time to time, in consultation with the responsible minister. The portfolio charging review report is submitted to the responsible minister and copied to the Finance Minister.
