Federal Information Commissioner cashed up
The Federal Government's Budget Papers for 2010-2011 (PM&C Portfolio Budget Statement- Program1. 4) include an entry for the Office of Information Commissioner allocating $1.5 million in the revised budget for 2009-2010 (last year's papers included $2.961 million, obviously a little ambitious about the start date), $5.4 million for each of the next two years and $5.5 million in 2013-2014. Around $7 million is separately allocated to the Office of the Privacy Commissioner which will become part of the OIC, a separate statutory agency operating within the Prime Minister's portfolio, when the Office is established.
