Finance & Administration
It is often very difficult to find clear information about how the Government has, or intends to spend money. Particularly at election time, many grand and expensive promises are made, yet frequently the money is not ultimately spent, or the opposite, many commitments turn out to be much more expensive than claimed. The Greens are determined to hold the Government to account and are working to ensure that budget information is reported in a way that makes it simple for everybody to find detailed information about what has been promised and how much has been spent.
In addition the Greens will continue to scrutinise the Department of Finance and Deregulation's management of the Australian Government’s non-defence domestic property portfolio and key asset sales.
