PBO clarifies modelling attribution

“References in the media this morning to modelling being released today by the Parliamentary Budget Office (PBO) are incorrect,” Parliamentary Budget Officer Jenny Wilkinson stated today. “The analysis reported in the media this morning was not conducted by the PBO.”

The PBO publicly released a post election report on 5 August 2016, containing costings of all of the policies that the major parliamentary parties took to the last election. In this term of Parliament, confidential costings of policy proposals have been conducted, on request, by Parliamentarians in accordance with standard practice.
