Legislative Assembly for the ACT: 2007 Week 7 Hansard (21 August) . . Page.. 1736..

MR STANHOPE: This instrument is issued in accordance with the Annual Reports (Government Agencies) Act 2004 and provides the framework for the preparation of 2006-07 annual reports. The instrument includes the annual reports directions for this reporting year. Under the act, this instrument must be tabled, although it is not disallowable. The instrument is notifiable under the Legislation Act 2001.

The annual reports directions were provided to the Standing Committee on Public Accounts for consultation. The chair advised on 26 June 2006 that the committee had considered the draft directions and that it had no comments. I have written to the committee thanking them for their advice.

The annual reports directions require responsible ministers to provide reports to the Speaker, who in turn is required under the act to provide them to the members of the Legislative Assembly. This must occur before the end of September. Annual reports will also be made publicly available at this stage.

Under the act, I may declare a day before the end of September on which reports are to be presented to the ministers by reporting entities. To facilitate provision of reports, I propose to declare the date of 25 September 2007 by which reports must be provided to ministers. All reports must include audited financial statements and performance statements when presented.


Mr Stanhope presented the following paper:

Financial Management Act, pursuant to section 26—Consolidated Financial Report for the financial quarter and year-to-date ending 30 June 2007.
