Chief Executive expense disclosure

The State Services Commission requires agencies to disclose chief executive expenses, gifts and hospitality.

The State Services Commissioner introduced this disclosure regime 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 must now be published, containing information up to the end of the financial year (30 June), by the third week of July each year.

Below are Julie Read's (Chief Executive and Director of the Serious Fraud Office) expenses, gifts and hospitality.
