In an effort to improve transparency, accountability and enhance the proactive disclosure of information, the Government of New Brunswick is making available, through routine disclosure, information on expenses claimed by ministers and senior executives and some officers of the Legislative Assembly.
Expenses are defined as costs incurred and allowances provided to the individual and paid by the Department on an expense claim. They do not include constituency office expenses for MLA’s which are covered by the Legislative Assembly.
The types of expenses included in these reports are:
- living expenses (ministers only)
- transportation (eg. rental vehicles and air travel)
- accommodations and meals (eg. hotel and private arrangements)
- other expenses (eg. business meetings and incidental travel expenses)
Information will be reported in the Department where it was incurred. For example if ministers changed portfolios during the year, the report for the Department will include expenses for both the current and the previous minister.
