The GSF Act contains provisions relating to the financial management and administration of the NSW Government sector. The following guidance will provide you with the information and links to build your understanding of how the reform affects your role within your agency or cluster.

Current status of Treasurer’s directions

  • Treasurer’s directions issued as the ‘Gold Book’ and associated Treasury Circulars amending the Gold Book, have been repealed.
  • Treasurer’s directions issued separately under the PFAA (i.e. published as Treasury Circulars & Treasury Policy papers) remain in force, and should be followed as government policy, unless the provision to which they relate have been repealed at an earlier stage or they are inconsistent with the GSF Act.
  • TDs 92.2, 88.2 and 89.1 (section 469 of the Gold Book) also continue to operate. These were part of the Gold Book but were not repealed because of a lack of other clear government policy in the area. They remain in force and should be followed as government policy. These can be found in the Policy & Guidelines section of the Document library on the NSW Treasury website.
