Mr Barr: The answer to the member’s question is as follows:
Section 131 of the Financial Management Act 1996 allows the Treasurer to authorise waivers and requires authorised amounts to be reported in notes to the financial statements of the Directorate or Territory Authority who made the payment.
The Treasurer has also delegated this authority under section 254A of the Legislation Act 2001.
The number of waiver applications received, and the amounts waived, by the Treasurer and delegates in 2020-21 is provided below. No other delegations were used in relation to waivers in 2020-21
