Appendix 4 - Operation of ASAC
The Australian Statistics Advisory Council was established by the Australian Bureau of Statistics Act 1975.
The Chairperson of the Council receives an annual fee, set by the Remuneration Tribunal, and members are reimbursed their travel costs, where applicable. Apart from the Chairperson, no members receive remuneration for serving on the Council. Direct expenditure on ASAC during 2003-04 was $63,145. These costs are met from the ABS budget.
Secretariat services for ASAC are provided by the ABS. The office of ASAC Secretary is held by the Assistant Statistician of the Policy Secretariat Branch of the ABS. Secretariat support provided by the ABS includes organising and recording of meetings, administering membership and the members' online Discussion Forum, and the preparation of Council's Annual Report. The cost of these services was estimated to be $72,967 during 2003-04.
