As part of the federal 2019-20 budget, the government allocated $5 million for the establishment of the body, which is situated in the Department of the Prime Minister and Cabinet. 

The taskforce has aimed to develop a strategy for the Commonwealth’s role in the impact investing market international, private sector and state and territory government experience. 

It is due to deliver an initial report before the end of the year, with the body to consult in the leadup. 

The taskforce will have a final report by mid-2020.

On the formation of the panel, Mr Traill commented: “I am excited about the wealth of experience across the expert panel to develop practical recommendations to underpin a cohesive, strategic approach to achieving better outcomes through social impact investing.”
