Public Disclosure of Expenses

All senior officials of the Government of PEI must publicly disclose any travel, hospitality, meals, meetings, and conference expenses they incur while advancing the business and priorities of the Government of Prince Edward Island.  

Ministers, deputy ministers, CEOs, senior advisors, political staff, and any senior officials designated by Executive Council must submit an expense report monthly for any transaction entered in the financial system. 

These reports are posted online fifteen business days after the end of each month. Click the button below to access Public Disclosure Expense Reports. Please note when viewing reports that a date that is not clickable is an indicator that there was no activity during the reporting period and a blank cell is an indicator that the report is not available to publish yet.  

Over time through re-organizations government departments can change. Reports that were published under department/boards that are no longer active are still available as Public Disclosure Expense Reports –Inactive.

Prior to April 1, 2015, only cabinet ministers were required to disclose expenditures, which were posted quarterly. These reports are available as Historical Ministers Disclosures. 
 

What if expenses do not appear in the report?

Expenses are disclosed in the period that they are posted to the financial system which may be different than the actual event date. If no expenses are disclosed, it may indicate there was no expense activity during the reporting period or the incurred expenses were not yet available to publish.

What are Reimbursements?

On occasion, a person covered by this policy is required to travel out of province on behalf of an organization which pays for all or a portion of the costs. The initial expenses are disclosed. When the Government of Prince Edward Island is reimbursed, the reimbursement is disclosed and referenced to the initial cost.
