Our finances

This section provides access to our financial information and procurement information.

Financial information

The OPG is not a statutory body for the purposes of the Statutory Bodies Financial Arrangements Act 1982 or the Financial Accountability Act 2009.

Funding for the office is appropriated from Queensland Government as part of the appropriation for the Department of Justice and Attorney-General (DJAG), with the Director-General of DJAG being the accountable officer pursuant to the Financial Accountability Act 2009.

In addition to the DJAG appropriation, the Public Trustee of Queensland makes an annual grant towards the operating costs of the OPG.

Comprehensive financial details relating to the operations of the office are reported in the annual report for DJAG (link to http://www.justice.qld.gov.au/corporate/publications/annual-report).

The OPG annual reports provide an overview of OPG’s financial performance for each financial year. (link to http://www.publicguardian.qld.gov.au/publications)
