Third party collection for P&Cs has also been enabled by DET in the latest update to the Accounting Manual, provided Queensland Government and departmental procurement policies are adhered to in selecting the agency. A simplified checklist is being developed by DET to assist P&Cs in their selection procedures, which will be provided as soon as it is made available.
The Accounting Manual for P&C Associations is produced by the Department of Education and Training (DET). It contains vital information regarding the financial operations of the P&C. State school P&Cs in Queensland must follow the procedures outlined in the Manual. The Accounting Manual is essential reading for all P&C treasurers and recommended for other P&C executive officers.
