Reappointment of part-time Chairperson to the Commonwealth Grants Commission

The Government has reappointed Mr Greg Smith as the part-time Chairperson to the Commonwealth Grants Commission for a further two-year period.

The Commonwealth Grants Commission is a statutory authority whose role is to provide advice to the Government on how the revenues raised from the Goods and Services Tax (GST) should be distributed amongst the States and Territories each year to achieve horizontal fiscal equalisation.

The further two-year appointment allows Mr Smith to oversee the Commission’s Methodology Review due for completion in 2020.
