Parliamentary paper shoulder numbers
District health boards (DHBs) and some multi-parent health Crown Entity subsidiaries are required to affix shoulder numbers to their Annual Reports and Statements of Intent/Statements of Performance Expectations, as these documents are designated 'Parliamentary Papers'.
Parliamentary Papers are published under the authority of the House of Representatives, and Annual Reports and Statements of Intent/Statements of Performance Expectations must conform to requirements for Parliamentary Papers set by the Office of the Clerk. Under current requirements, Parliamentary Papers must be produced in A4 size and include the appropriate shoulder number in the top right-hand corner of the cover and title page.
Shoulder numbers are issued by the Office of the Clerk (Bills Office). The title page should include the formal name of the Crown Entity and the financial year to which the Annual Report or Statement of Intent/Statement of Performance Expectations relates. It should also indicate that it is presented to the House of Representatives pursuant to section 150(3) of the Crown Entities Act 2004.
