Mr Turnbull: I am advised by the Australian Public Service Commission that the answer to the honourable member's question is as follows:

(a) The lodging and room hire was sought for an event held on 7 October 2015. The event was an Executive level Leadership Network panel discussion. A panel of Deputy Secretaries discussed the topic 'Large Scale Integration: are we learning from the past?'

The Purchase Order raised for $17,000.00 was for projected costs. Actual costs were $8,142.90.

(b) A total of 340 employees from various departments and agencies attended this event.
