02 Governance, Structure & People INDEMNITIES AND INSURANCE PREMIUMS FOR OFFICIALS

CEFC ANNUAL REPORT / 2014–15

INDEMNITIES AND INSURANCE PREMIUMS FOR OFFICIALS

The CEFC has made certain indemnities and insurances to ‘officers’ of the Corporation including Board Members and senior managers (for the CEFC, this is the Executive). The CEFC also indemnifies staff for items such as travel expenses on a reimbursement basis.

Comcover and Comcare insurance

These insurances have general application that include Board Members and the Executive among others as per the ordinary insurances required of Commonwealth entities.

​Travel and expense reimbursement

The CEFC does not issue corporate credit cards for staff travel and expenses and instead, through its employment contract, indemnifies staff members (including the Executive) for reasonable travel and ancillary expenses incurred by staff in the performance of their duties, based on verified claims on a reimbursement basis.

Board Members do not generally require travel reimbursement as their expenses are met through allowances as determined by the Remuneration Tribunal (see Board Member Remuneration and Allowances).
