Office of the Clerk
The Office of the Clerk looks after the procedural aspects of Parliament. We're an independent organisation and our advice to Parliament is valued for its expertise and impartiality. Although we're a separate entity, we work alongside the other agencies at Parliament.
The Parliamentary Service was established in 1985 to provide services to members of Parliament and the House of Representatives, and to administer Parliament's buildings and grounds.
Offices of Parliament
There are three offices of Parliament — the Office of the Auditor General, the Office of the Ombudsman, and the Office of the Parliamentary Commissioner for the Environment.
The executive agencies of Parliament are the Department of the Prime Minister and Cabinet, the Department of Internal Affairs, and the Parliamentary Counsel Office.
