Legislative Assembly for the ACT: 2008 Week 6 Hansard (26 June) . . Page.. 2075..


MR STANHOPE (continuing):

preparation of annual reports for the three years commencing with the 2007-08 reporting year. Under the act the instrument must be tabled although it is not disallowable. The instrument is notified under the Legislation Act 2001.

Annual report directions were provided to the Standing Committee on Public Accounts for consultation. The chair advised on 11 June 2008 that the committee had considered the draft directions. I have written to the committee thanking them for their comment.

The annual report directions require responsible ministers to provide reports for the Speaker, who in turn is required under the act to provide them to members of the 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 24 September 2008 by which reports must be provided to ministers. All reports must include audit and financial statements and performance statements when presented.
