Gifts and Benefits Register

Gifts, Benefits and Hospitality Register

The Gifts, Benefits and Hospitality Policy (PDF, 324KB) sets out the broad principles to be applied by and to all Department of Education officers and employees in relation to the offer, acceptance or refusal of a gift, benefit or hospitality.

Officers and employees should not expect to receive gifts, benefits or hospitality for doing a job they are paid for by the public to do. In most instances, ‘thanks’ is enough.

If a gift, benefit or hospitality is accepted, it must be declared and recorded on the Department of Education’s Gifts, Benefits and Hospitality Register.
