Outlook for 2016-17

The Commission will introduce refreshed strategic priorities in 2016–17. While building on the current set of priorities, the Commission will acknowledge emerging themes affecting the APS in the context of a rapidly changing external environment.

Budget outlook

The Commission's departmental appropriation revenue will decrease from $20.6 million in 2015–16 to $20.3 million in 2016–17. This is mainly due to the ongoing efficiency dividend and other government-wide savings measures. The Commission is managing these funding challenges to ensure that it delivers a balanced financial result and is financially sustainable for future years.

Administered payments for the parliamentarians' and judicial office holders' remuneration and entitlements program are expected to increase to $64.4 million in 2016–17 as a result of the regular annual review of remuneration.
