Report A Fraud

The Public Service Commission requires agencies to disclose chief executive expenses, gifts and hospitality.

The Public Service Commissioner introduced this disclosure requirement to show New Zealanders that public funds are being spent judiciously and that senior officials are modelling appropriate behaviour.

Since 2015, chief executives must disclose their expenses, gifts and hospitality at least annually. Prior to 2015, disclosures were made every six months. Annual disclosures, containing information up to the end of the financial year (30 June) must be published by the third week of July each year.
