Election Commitment Costings

The Charter of Budget Honesty Act 1998 outlines arrangements under which the Secretaries to the Treasury and the Department of Finance and Deregulation may be requested to cost Government and Opposition election commitments during the caretaker period for a general election. The Charter of Budget Honesty Costing Election Commitments guidelines, issued on 11 June 2010, outline the protocols and timeframes for the costing of election commitments.

In accordance with the guidelines, all costing requests received from the Government and Opposition, completed costings and related information are posted to this site.
