AMSA is not directly appropriated as it is a corporate Commonwealth entity. Appropriations are made to the Department of Infrastructure, Regional Development and Cities, which are then paid to AMSA and are considered ‘departmental’ for all purposes.


  1. Annual appropriation amounts appearing for 2018–19 do not include Appropriation Bill (No. 3) 2018–2019, as it had not been enacted at the time of publication.
