ATEED Board members (from 1 January 2015)
While undertaking their role on the ATEED Board, directors sometimes incur non-travel costs such as taxis, meals and beverages while representing ATEED at business-related meetings, or when representing ATEED or hosting stakeholders at high-level functions/events. In all cases, reimbursement claims are subject to approval. The ATEED Board Chair approves claims by other directors. The Chairman’s claims are approved by the Deputy Chair.
Some reimbursement is through Auckland Council’s Democracy Services unit; some is through ATEED’s accounting system. The costs below reflect those recorded by Democracy Services and ATEED’s financial system in the periods indicated (the latter form part of ATEED’s overall audited financial statements).
ATEED Chief Executive and General Managers (from 1 January 2015)
During the course of their work, senior leaders often incur non-travel costs such as taxis, meals and beverages during business-related meetings, or when hosting stakeholders are functions/events. In all cases, reimbursement claims by tier two staff are subject to approval by the Chief Executive, while claims by the Chief Executive are subject to approval by ATEED’s Chair.
The following table outlines those expenses. As per ATEED’s policy, expenses are coded against the most senior ATEED representative attending an event or meeting. For example, if the Chief Executive is hosting an event with ATEED staff and external stakeholders, any expenses incurred by ATEED will be coded to the Chief Executive’s cost centre. This is consistent with ATEED’s Delegated Financial Authority policy, which states that expenses must be paid for by the most senior ATEED representative attending an event.
The costs below are those recorded in ATEED’s financial system and are part of ATEED’s overall audited financial statements.
