Members approved the budget for the Assembly Commission for 2013-2014 on 14 November 2012.
At the beginning of the Fourth Assembly, the commission set out a three year spending plan to deliver their strategic aims.
Those plans were supported by the assembly's Finance Committee and the assembly as a whole.
Chair of the Finance Committee Jocelyn Davies warned that as there was a 5.3% increase in the commission's budget for this year to allow for the additional law making powers; they would be expecting to see the results promised.
Representing the Assembly Commission, Angela Burns AM promised that they would stand to account and ensure that their cost savings would go even further.
The commission's budget for 2013-14 is £49.5 million of which £13.7 million will provide funding for assembly members' salaries, their staff and the costs of running their constituency offices located across Wales.
The remaining £33.8 million is for services delivered by the assembly commission to support the assembly.
Members' salaries are frozen at their current level until 2014-15.
