Grants and appointments

We produce a list of current statutory appointments to OAIC (as a Senate Order requires) and table them 3 times a year, no later than 7 days before the start of:

  • budget estimates
  • supplementary budget estimates
  • additional estimates

The reporting period starts on the day after the previous period ends. It lasts until 2 weeks before the next list is due for tabling.

We also produce a list of grants the OAIC awards. We publish information about the grant when it’s awarded.
