Gift, travel contribution and electoral gift register

Under the Local Government Act 1995, Local Government (Rules of Conduct) Regulations 2007 and Local Government (Administration) Regulations 1996, local government elected members and staff are required to notify their Chief Executive Officer of a notifiable gift within ten days of its receipt.

A notifiable gift is a gift (or combination of gifts received from the same person within six months) of an estimated value of between $50 and $300 received from a person who is undertaking, seeking to undertake, or who could reasonably be believed to be intending to undertake an activity involving local government discretion.

Elected members and staff are prohibited from accepting gifts of an estimated value of more than $300.

There is increasing public interest in federal, state and local government transparency surrounding gift and travel contribution disclosure. The City of Subiaco is committed to responsible and accountable governance and accordingly passed a resolution at its council meeting on Tuesday 15 December 2015 to implement an online gift and travel contribution register.

Below are registers detailing notifiable gifts and travel contributions from 1 January 2016. Records of disclosures before this time are available for public inspection at the City’s Administration Centre.

Electoral Gift Declaration Register

Candidates in local government elections must be aware of their legislative obligations in relation to the disclosure of gifts leading up to the local government elections. Part 5A of the Local Government (Elections) Regulations 1997 requires both candidates and donors to disclose information about any electoral related gift with a value of $200 or more that was given during the disclosure period (being six months before Election Day).

Disclosure period

Within three days of nomination, any candidate in a local government election is requied to disclose any gifts received within the disclosure period. The disclosure period commences six months prior to election day. The disclosure period finishes three days after Election Day (for unsuccessful candidates) and on the start day for financial interest returns for successful candidates.

How a Disclosure is made

All Disclosures are to be made on a LG09A Disclosure of Gifts Form and delivered to the City of Subiaco Chief Executive Officer within three days of receiving the gift, once the candidate nomination has been made to the Returning Officer.

Donors will also need to disclose any gifts made within the relevant period. Information to be supplied includes the name of the candidate, the name and address of the donor, the date the gift was promised or received, the value of the gift and a description of the gift.
