Delegations and Authorisations in the APS

27 November 2019

Welcome to our Government Legal Insight prepared by the HWL Ebsworth Public Law Team.

The Government Legal Insight is a newsletter published on a regular basis that contains concise information on areas of law relevant to Australian Government clients. We are trusted advisors to the Government, having recently been appointed to all practice areas of the Whole of Australian Government Legal Services Panel. In the course of providing our legal services to our clients, we have picked up on trends and common themes of interest and have developed our Legal Insights with this in mind.

Our first Government Legal Insight, written by Partner Lex Holcombe and Special Counsel Kristina Mihalic, canvasses the area of delegations and authorisations and the application of the law to the Australian Public Service. The article provides a snapshot of the current law and practical information as to when the power to delegate or authorise can be implied, and how delegations or authorisations are to operate with Machinery of Government or a change in Minister or Agency Head.
