About the Handbook
The Department of Premier and Cabinet (DPC) is responsible, under the MOPS Act, for providing administrative and other support services for Ministers and their staff.
Ministers and their staff need to familiarise themselves with the contents of the Handbook and may contact P&O for clarifications and further information. The Handbook will be updated as necessary to make sure that the contents remain current and reliable, and to pick up any suggestions for improvement.
This Handbook is separate and distinct from the Ministerial Handbook. It does not duplicate material from other key sources such as the Members’ Handbooks and Guides issued by the Parliament, and the Parliamentary Remuneration Tribunal’s annual determination.
