Gift disclosure information

The Gifts Register contains the disclosures of gifts that have been made by Elected Members, the Chief Executive Officer and Employees in their official capacity.

To adhere with the changes to gift disclosure regulations in the Local Government Legislation Amendment Act 2019, passed by Parliament on 27 June 2019, the Shire of Wagin provides gift disclosure information in the interests of accountability and transparency.

Elected Members and the Chief Executive Officer are required to disclose gifts which are valued over $300 or are two or more gifts with a cumulative value over $300 (where the gifts are received from the same donor in a 12 month period) within 10 days of receipt [Sections 5.87A & 5.87B Local Government Act 1995].

Employees are required to disclose gifts that are valued between $50 and $300 or are two or more gifts with a cumulative value between $50 and $300 (where the gifts are received from the same donor in a 6 month period) within 10 days of receipt. Gifts over the value of $300 are prohibited [R.34B Local Government (Administration) Regulations]. A gift valued below $50 may be accepted and need not be disclosed (providing the gift is not one of 2 or more gifts given by the same person within a 6-month period whereby the total value exceeds $50).

The Act and Regulations require the Chief Executive Officer to publish an up to date version of the Gifts Register on the Shire’s website after a disclosure is made. To protect the privacy of individuals, the register published on the website does not include the address disclosed by an individual donor and will instead include the town or suburb.
