Harradine Reports

Every six months, AASB is required to prepare a response to the Senate Continuing Order for Indexed List of Agency Files (known as the 'Harradine Report').

The order requires that the indexed list of files is published to the internet, so it is accessible to the public and can assist with Freedom of Information requests.

Senate Order Reports

From 1 July 2015, the revised Senate Order requires that only contracts formed through grants, sales of goods/services by an entity, disposals by an entity, and other financial arrangements (non-procurement contracts) be included in the internet listing. Procurement contracts are not to be included in the internet listing. Reports on procurement contracts will be generated by the Department of Finance and published on AusTender ( and can be accessed by the Senate Order button.

The Australian Accounting Standards Board is subject to the Senate Order and a listing has been published for the 1 January 2023 - 31 December 2023 period.
