Minimum Obligatory Human Resource Information (MOHRI)

The MOHRI data is published in a bi-annual profile by the Public Service Commission. The MOHRI data provides information on the Queensland public sector workforce profile to:

  • undertake evidence-based data analysis to inform government policy, planning and decision making about the Queensland public sector
  • identify strategic management issues across the Queensland public sector
  • assist government wages policy and wage bargaining processes
  • identify relationships between workforce trends and the overall direction of workforce policy across the Queensland public sector
  • provide benchmarking information to agencies
  • evaluate service-wide and agency workforce policies and performance.

Section 46 of the Public Service Act (PDF) and Directive 05/14 outlines the responsibilities of agencies to provide this information.
