Government responsibilities

The Premier of Queensland has responsibility for determining ministerial portfolios.

The responsibilities of ministers and their portfolios are set out in Administrative Arrangements Orders. For each Minister, they detail the principal responsibilities, the Acts they administer, and the departments, agencies and office holders responsible for them.

Administrative Arrangements Orders are re-issued or amended when a change in the structure of government—known as ‘machinery of government’—takes place.
