The Legislative Assembly Management Committee was established in 1992 with the enactment of the Legislative Assembly Management Committee Act. The all-party Committee's powers are derived from the Legislative Assembly, which delegates the management of its affairs to the Committee. As a parliamentary management board, the Committee's powers and duties relate to developing policies for the administration and financial management of the Legislative Assembly in support of Members' parliamentary and constituency responsibilities.
The Committee is responsible for:
- the sound administration of the Assembly's operations;
- the provision of effective administrative and financial policies and support for the Assembly's Members in the discharge of their parliamentary and constituency responsibilities; and
- prudent Assembly budgets and expenditures on behalf of all British Columbians.
