Australian Government agencies require legal services for a range of different reasons.

Most Commonwealth agencies are required to report to the Office of Legal Services Coordination (OLSC) about their legal services expenditure within 60 days after the end of the financial year.

Agencies must submit expenditure reports using the template that OLSC provides to all agencies at the start of each financial year. If you have not received this template, please contact OLSC at LSER@ag.gov.au or 02 6141 3642.

This information is compiled into annual reports on Commonwealth legal services expenditure.

The reports:

  • provide an overview of legal services expenditure across the Commonwealth from 2009–2010 to
    2017–2018
  • identify and report on trends, patterns and changes in Commonwealth legal services expenditure.
