Review of travel policy and recommendations for improvement

​​States spending on travel and accommodation has always been controlled through the use of Financial Directions. 

However, public interest in this matter was increased in February 2016 following a media report concerning the travel costs of two senior officers.

As a result of this interest, the Chief Minister ordered an immediate review into this area of spending, together with a separate investigation of the specific trip highlighted in the media. 

This report does not cover that separate investigation, which has also concluded.

Expenditure by the States of Jersey on travel, accommodation and related expenditure represents a relatively small proportion of total States revenue expenditure (approximately half of one percent).

International travel represents around 0.025% of total revenue expenditure, ie 2.5 hundredths of one percent. 

However, at over £3 million a year, total travel expenditure is still a significant sum at a time when the Council of Ministers are asking departments to identify savings.
