Staff Overseas Travel Disclosure

Overseas Travel

The SA Government is currently moving towards providing a single Annual Report for the State. As a part of this process Premier and Cabinet Circular PC035 has been revised to require agencies to make information related to overseas travel publicly available via the website.

To allow adequate time for receipt of charges and reconcillation of costs, information relating to overseas travel will be posted two (2) months after the traveller(s) return to Australia.

For all overseas travel disclosures prior to May 2015, please refer to published Annual Reports.
