Description of this AgencyDescription of this Agency
The Premier's Office (also known as Premier's Department) was established by an Order-in-Council dated 29 May 1883.

From 1883 to 1890 the Premier's Office functioned as a sub-department within the Department of the Treasurer (VA 865), from 1890 to 1894 as a separate Department of State (by Order-in-Council dated 23 December 1890), from 1894 to 1928 as a sub-department within the Chief Secretary's Department (VA 475) and from 1928 to 1936 again within the Department of the Treasurer (VA 865).

In 1936 the Premier, as head of government in Victoria, became a commissioned Ministerial office with salary and separate portfolio responsibilities. A Department of the Premier (VA 2717) was subsequently established and the Premier's Office became a division of that Department.
