Gifts and Benefits Register

The IGTO encourages all officers to politely decline offers of gifts or benefits.

Gifts or benefits may compromise the integrity and independence of the IGTO agency and its officers.

The IGTO and her officers disclose all gifts and benefits received in an internal register, a version of which is published below. The published register complies with requirements of the Australian Public Service Commission for the agency head to publicly disclose all gifts and benefits received with a value of A$100 or more (excluding GST).

The published IGTO register lists all gifts and benefits received by the IGTO and her officers, regardless of value. The published register is updated every quarter.
