The Financial and Performance Management Standard 2009 (PDF, 350KB), issued under the FAA Act, provides a framework for the QCT to develop and implement systems, practices and controls for the efficient, effective and economic financial and performance management of the office.
In Queensland, the State Procurement Policy contains the broader rules under which procurement is conducted by all government agencies. Each agency then has its own more detailed purchasing procedures, which sets out how their officers will buy goods and services. For the purposes of administering good practice in its financial management, the QCT maintains a QCT Financial Management Practice Manual.
