Introduction

What is an annual report?

  1. The primary purpose of annual reports of non-corporate Commonwealth entities is accountability. They serve to inform the Parliament (through the responsible Minister), other stakeholders, educational and research institutions, the media and the general public about the performance of entities in relation to activities undertaken.
  2. Annual reports are also a key reference document and a document for internal management. They form a critical part of the historical record.
  3. Annual reports are also a key accountability mechanism of the Commonwealth’s performance framework, established under the PGPA Act, and the Commonwealth’s resource management framework, through the reporting of the actual performance of entities against the planned performance information outlined in their Portfolio Budget Statements and corporate plans.
  4. Annual reports coexist with additional information available through other sources, including entity websites.

Principles underlying annual report requirements

    5. When non-corporate Commonwealth entities are preparing an annual report, they should consider the following principles. An annual report should:

  • be written in plain English and provide sufficient information and analysis for the Parliament to make a fully informed judgment on entity performance;
  • align with the overall Commonwealth resource management framework, PGPA Act, PGPA Rule and the Commonwealth performance framework;
  • reflect the harmonisation, as far as practicable, of reporting regimes within government (including corporate plans, Portfolio Budget Statements and other portfolio statements accompanying any other additional appropriation bills), and between the government and non‑government sectors; and
  • include consideration by the accountable authority of the relative benefits and costs involved as to the level to which particular matters are reported.

    6. Entities vary in role and size, and accountable authorities have discretion as to the extent of information to include in annual reports and the sequence in which it is presented, as long as the requirements for information set out in the PGPA Rule are met
    7. Whether or not particular information should be reported, should be decided, in the absence of any contrary direction in this guide, having regard to the principles underlying annual report requirements as detailed in the introduction to this guide.

Tips on using this guide

8. This guide is divided into three parts, each providing information on various requirements for annual reports. Where relevant, extracts of the specific legislative requirements are shown in the following layout: 

Name of the legislation

Provision number & name

  1.  Relevant extract of the provision, which details the requirements.
  2.  Please note, this may only show the relevant part of the provision, not necessarily the entire provision.

9. Notes have been provided below the boxes to provide further explanation or guidance. It is important to read both the provision extracts in the boxes and the notes.

10. At the end of the guide are appendices containing tables and templates to assist entities in meeting the annual report requirements, and a glossary to describe some of the terms used in this guide.

11. Appendix A contains templates for Entity Resource Statement and Expenses by Outcome tables, in the preferred format.

12. Appendix B contains the template list of requirements, required to be included in entities’ annual reports as an aid to access.

  • The list of requirements is also a useful resource for annual report coordinators, as it can be used as a checklist to ensure that the mandatory PGPA requirements have been met. 
  • To support this, the information in Part 2 of this guide has been structured in the same order as the list of requirements.

13. Appendix C contains data templates that are required to be completed for the digital reporting tool. 

  • Where a provision has an associated data template, a cross-reference to that template is provided above the provision.
  • The financial data templates only capture a subset of the required information from the associated tables.
  • The non-financial data templates, however, help to meet minimum reporting requirements for either part or all of the provisions that they relate to.

Part 1 – Publication and presentation requirements

15. This part provides details of the requirements for the presentation of annual reports to the Parliament, including timeframes, production and design standards, and publishing and distribution obligations. This part also outlines the requirements for entities to publish their annual reports using the digital reporting tool.

Overarching requirements

Public Governance, Performance and Accountability Act 2013

Section 46 Annual report for Commonwealth entities

1. After the end of each reporting period for a Commonwealth entity, the accountable authority of the entity must prepare and give an annual report to the entity’s responsible Minister, for presentation to the Parliament, on the entity’s activities during the period.

Note: A Commonwealth entity’s annual report must include the entity’s annual performance statements and annual financial statements (see paragraph 39(1)(b) and subsection 43(4)).

  1.  The annual report must be given to the responsible Minister by:
    (a) the 15th day of the fourth month after the end of the reporting period for the entity; or
    (b) the end of any further period granted under subsection 34C(5) of the Acts Interpretation Act 1901.
  2.  The annual report must comply with any requirements prescribed by the rules.

16. For entities that report on a financial year basis, this section requires that the annual report be prepared and provided to the responsible Minister by 15 October for each reporting period. 

17. This provision is not meant to contravene any timing set out by the Department of the Prime Minister and Cabinet (PM&C) in relation to tabling of annual reports in the Parliament. Entities must ensure they provide their responsible Minister with sufficient time to consider the annual report prior to the report being presented to the Parliament, in accordance with PM&C’s guidelines (see the Parliamentary presentation timing and standards section below for further details).

18. The provisions of subsections 34C(4) to (7) of the Acts Interpretation Act 1901 allow for an application for extension of the period for presenting annual reports. An extension should only be sought if it would not be reasonably possible for the report to be prepared within the specified timeframes.

Parliamentary presentation timing and standards

Public Governance, Performance and Accountability Rule 2014

Section 17AB Parliamentary standards of presentation

The annual report for a non-corporate Commonwealth entity must comply with guidelines for presenting documents to the Parliament.

19. PM&C publishes Tabling Guidelines and associated circulars that Commonwealth entities should follow when arranging for the presentation of documents to the Parliament.

20. Towards the end of a reporting period, PM&C may issue a Tabling Circular containing the tabling timetable, which will reflect the Parliament’s expectations for the timing of the presentation of annual reports.
 
21. Normally annual reports are tabled on or before 31 October and it is expected annual reports are tabled prior to the October Estimates Hearings. This ensures annual reports are available for scrutiny by the relevant Senate standing committee.

22. Where entities are unable to meet the timing set out in PM&C’s circular, they should contact tabling@pmc.gov.au for further advice.

23. The Tabling Circular may also provide delivery instructions, and key tasks for tabling annual reports when the Parliament is not sitting. 

24. Guidance on the production standards for annual reports tabled in the Parliament are set out in the Printing Standards on the Parliament of Australia website.

Plain English and clear design

Public Governance, Performance and Accountability Rule 2014

Section 17AC Plain English and clear design

  1. The annual report for a non‑corporate Commonwealth entity must be prepared having regard to the interests of the Parliament and any other persons who are interested in the annual report.
  2. Information included in the annual report must be relevant, reliable, concise, understandable and balanced, including through doing the following, where practicable:

    (a) using clear design (for example, through headings and adequate spacing);
    (b) defining acronyms and technical terms (for example, in a glossary);
    (c) using tables, graphs, diagrams and charts;
    (d) including any additional matters as appropriate.

25. Annual reports are key documents of accountability and transparency to the Parliament and the public. Accordingly, annual reports should be prepared to best provide readers with a clear account of the operations and performance of the entity for the reporting period.

26. Tables, graphs, diagrams and charts should be used where appropriate to provide additional context to the information. Consistent with the Printing standards, entities must have regard to limiting the use of colour and illustrations to where it enhances the reader’s understanding of the material. An excessive use of colour, illustrations and photography is not usually required for the purposes of accountability and reporting to the Parliament. 

The digital reporting tool

Public Governance, Performance and Accountability Rule 2014

Section 17ABA Annual report to be published using the digital reporting tool

 As soon as practicable after the annual report for a non‑corporate Commonwealth entity has been presented to the Parliament, the annual report must be published using the digital reporting tool administered by the Finance Minister.


27. The digital reporting tool enables entities to draft content and publish annual reports to the Transparency Portal at transparency.gov.au in a fully accessible HTML format. Commencing from the 2018-19 reporting period all Commonwealth entities’ and companies’ annual reports are to be published on and accessible from transparency.gov.au shortly after the presentation of these reports to the Parliament.

28. The digital reporting tool contains a collection of templates for standard data sets that must be completed for the entity’s annual report. These templates reflect mandatory data requirements as set out by the PGPA Rule and are designed to assist entities to meet the reporting requirements. To assist entities in the preparation of their annual report, a copy of the required data templates are provided at Appendix C

29. The digital reporting tool is designed to assist entities to undertake a streamlined and more efficient annual reporting and publication process. Annual report coordinators should consider developing the annual report content directly in the tool and using the mandatory reporting templates provided within the relevant section of the entity’s annual report itself. This approach helps to focus the content of the report on the reporting requirements of the Parliament, rather than some of the broader publication elements that are not core to the accountability or reporting requirements. The digital content can be exported from the tool, to be type set and printed for tabling purposes. Adding further graphic design elements at this point in the publication process is possible but is not necessary to meet the tabling requirements.  

30. Further, the Australian Government Digital Service Standard, available at www.dto.gov.au/standard/, provides information about the legal and policy obligations of entities in relation to online publishing, including a range of mandatory requirements, including compliance with Web Content Accessibility Guidelines, which the digital reporting  tool assists entities in meeting  by producing the HTML format.

Part 2 – PGPA annual report content requirements

31. This part provides details of the annual report content requirements as specified by the PGPA Rule. The sections of the PGPA Rule outlining the requirements for content to be included in entities’ annual reports were approved on behalf of the Parliament by the Joint Committee of Public Accounts and Audit.

Letter of transmittal

Public Governance, Performance and Accountability Rule 2014

Section 17AI Letter of transmittal

         For the purposes of paragraph 17AD(g), the letter of transmittal for the annual report for the entity must:

  1.   be signed by the accountable authority of the entity; and
  2.   state that the annual report has been prepared for the purposes of:
    1. section 46 of the Act, which requires that an annual report be given to the entity’s responsible Minister for presentation to the Parliament; and
    2. if the entity has enabling legislation that specifies additional requirements in relation to the annual report—that legislation; and
  3. be dated on the day the accountable authority approves the final text of the report for printing.

32. The purpose of the letter of transmittal is to provide assurance from the accountable authority to the responsible Minister that the annual report of the entity has been prepared in accordance with all applicable obligations under the PGPA Act and other legislation, such as enabling legislation. The letter of transmittal is to be dated on the day the signatory approves the final text of the report for printing.

Aids to access

Associated data template: Section17AJ (e)-(g) Aids to Access

Public Governance, Performance and Accountability Rule 2014

Section 17AJ Aids to access

        For the purposes of paragraph 17AD(h), the aids to access that must be included in the annual report for the entity are the following:

        (a)  a table of contents;

        (b)  an alphabetical index of the contents of the report (including   any appendices);

        (c)  a glossary of any abbreviations and acronyms used in the report;

        (f)  the address of the entity’s website;

        (g)  if the annual report is to be available electronically—the direct address for the annual report on the entity’s website.

33. The information presented in entities’ annual reports should be able to be easily accessed by the reader. The reader should be able to locate specific information of interest in a straightforward manner.

34. By ensuring a level of consistency between the minimum aids to access included in annual reports, the requirements detailed above will assist readers of multiple entities’ annual reports to find information of interest in each report.

35. The accountable authority has the discretion to include any additional structure to the annual report that might enhance the accessibility of the specific information included in the entity’s report.

36. Entities should note that the requirement for entities’ annual reports to include a list of requirements must be provided in a consistent format for all entities. The mandatory table can be located in Schedule 2 of the PGPA Rule, available at www.legislation.gov.au, and in Appendix B of this guide.

37. The list of requirements should be included as an appendix to the annual report. If an item specified in the checklist is not applicable to an entity, it should be reported as “not applicable” rather than omitted from the list. Entities must also provide details of the location of the information in the annual report that addresses each of the mandatory requirements specified by the PGPA Rule.

Public Governance, Performance and Accountability Rule 2014

Section 17AG Information on management and accountability

Management of human resources

                (4) The annual report must include the following:

                    (c)  information on any enterprise agreements, individual flexibility arrangements, Australian workplace agreements, common law contracts or determinations under subsection 24(1) of the Public Service Act 1999, including:

  1. the number of SES employees and non‑SES employees of the entity covered by such agreements, arrangements, contracts or determinations during the period; and
  2. the salary ranges available during the period for APS employees of the entity by classification level; and
  3. a description of the range of non‑salary benefits provided during the period by the entity to its employees;

64. Annual reports must include information about the arrangements under which employees are employed in the entity. This may include information on any enterprise or collective agreements, individual flexibility agreements, determinations made under subsection 24(1) of the Public Service Act 1999, common law contracts or Australian Workplace Agreements. This information must include:

  • the number of APS employees covered by enterprise or collective agreements, individual flexibility agreements, subsection 24(1) determinations, common law contracts and Australian Workplace Agreements by Senior Executive Service (SES) employees and non-SES employees;
  • the salary ranges available for APS employees by classification level (the range should reflect the full span of salaries available under an enterprise or collective agreement, individual flexibility agreement, subsection 24(1) determination, common law contract and/or Australian Workplace Agreement); and
  • a description of the range of non-salary benefits provided by the entity to employees.
  • For those entities subject to a determination made under subsection 24(3) of the Public Service Act 1999, it would be appropriate to include a discussion of the effect of that determination when responding to this requirement. This discussion should include the number of employees covered by the determination, any supplementary arrangements entered into via subsection 24(1) determinations or common law contracts, and progress towards replacement of the determination with an enterprise or collective agreement.

65. For those entities subject to a determination made under subsection 24(3) of the Public Service Act 1999, it would be appropriate to include a discussion of the effect of that determination when responding to this requirement. This discussion should include the number of employees covered by the determination, any supplementary arrangements entered into via subsection 24(1) determinations or common law contracts, and progress towards replacement of the determination with an enterprise or collective agreement.

Performance pay

Associated data template: Section 17AG(4)(d) (iii)-(iv) Performance Pay by Classification level

Public Governance, Performance and Accountability Rule 2014

Section 17AG Information on management and accountability

Management of human resources

  1. The annual report must include the following:
    1.  if payments of performance pay are paid to APS employees of the entity—information on that performance pay, including the following:
      1. the number of APS employees of the entity at each classification level who received performance pay during the period;
      2. the aggregated amount of such payments at each classification level;
      3. the average amount of such payments, and the range of such payments, at each classification level;
      4. the aggregate amount of such payments for the entity.

69. Annual reports must include information about performance pay, which can also be known as performance-linked bonuses, and usually taking the form of a one-off payment in recognition of performance.

70. In compiling the information about performance pay, entities should:

  • include all eligible ongoing and non-ongoing APS staff;
  • include staff who left the entity during the reporting period, even if the performance payment was made after their departure;
  • include staff on leave of any kind at the end of the reporting period;
  • report the aggregate of actual payments, not payments before moderation. In the case of a small entity, or a small number of employees at a given classification level (e.g. five employees or fewer), a lesser disaggregation maybe necessary to ensure that individuals cannot be identified;
  • include each employee under one classification only. If an employee was promoted during the year and received performance pay at the lower classification only, include that employee in the report for the lower classification. If the promoted employee received performance pay at both classifications or at the higher level only, include the employee in the report for the higher level only and include the total payment in the aggregated payment report for that classification. Do not include the same employee in both classifications and do not break up the payment when aggregating the total payments for the various classifications;
  • not include performance-linked advancement (advancement to a higher pay point which then becomes the employee’s nominal salary). If an employee receives a performance bonus and a performance-linked advancement, only the bonus element should be reported;
  • not include payments in the nature of retention payments, job loadings or skills and responsibilities loadings; and
  • not include bonuses that accrued wholly in a previous reporting period, even if they were paid in the reporting period to which the report relates. For example, if a payment was made in the 2019–20 financial year for performance in respect of the period 1 July 2018 to 30 June 2019, it should not be included in the 2019‑20 annual report. However, if a significant number of payments fall into this category, consideration should be given to correcting the information in the previous year’s annual report.

Public Governance, Performance and Accountability Rule 2014

Section 17AG Information on management and accountability

Purchasing

    5. The annual report must include an assessment of the entity’s performance during the period against the Commonwealth Procurement Rules.

71. Entities that do not pay, or no longer pay, performance pay should include a statement to that effect in their annual report.

Consultants

Associated data templates: Section 17AG(7)(a)(i)-(iv) – Consultants

Public Governance, Performance and Accountability Rule 2014

Section 17AG Information on management and accountability

Consultants

  1. The annual report must include the following:
  1. a summary statement of the following:
    1. the number of new contracts engaging consultants that were entered into during the period;
    2. the total actual expenditure during the period on all such contracts (inclusive of GST);
    3. the number of ongoing contracts engaging consultants that were entered into during a previous reporting period;
    4. the total actual expenditure during the period on those ongoing contracts (inclusive of GST);
  2. a statement that “During [reporting period], [specified number] new consultancy contracts were entered into involving total actual expenditure of $[specified million]. In addition, [specified number] ongoing consultancy contracts were active during the period, involving total actual expenditure of $[specified million].”;
  3. a summary of:
    1.   the policies of the entity on selecting and engaging consultants; and
    2.   the procedures of the entity for selecting consultants; and
    3.   the main categories of purposes for which consultants were engaged;
  4. a statement that “Annual reports contain information about actual expenditure on contracts for consultancies. Information on the value of contracts and consultancies is available on the AusTender website”.

72. Annual reports must include the information on consultants as detailed in the provision above.

73. Many individuals, partnerships and corporations provide services to entities under contracts for services. However, not all such contractors should be categorised as consultants for the purposes of annual reporting. Consultants are distinguished from other contractors by the nature of the work they perform.

74. For reporting purposes, officials need to be able to distinguish consultancies from ‘non‑consultancy’ contracts and employment contracts. Briefly, a consultant is an individual, a partnership or a corporation engaged to provide professional, independent and expert advice or services.

75. The Department of Finance has developed guidance to assist entities in identifying whether a contract is a consultancy for reporting purposes.

76. To support the mandatory content as detailed above, entities may also consider including a table showing expenditure on consultancy contracts over the three most recent reporting periods. If doing so, care needs to be taken to ensure that expenditure on consultancies in previous years is not included in the annual report for subsequent years. That is, the table should clearly distinguish between expenditure on new consultancies compared to ongoing consultancies for each reporting period in the table

77. Typical reasons for engaging consultancy services include a requirement for specialist expertise not available within the entity or where an independent assessment is considered desirable. The selection process may involve, for example, open tender, selective tender, direct sourcing, or a panel consisting of recognised and pre-eminent experts, a consultant who had previously undertaken closely related work for the entity, or a consultant known to have the requisite skills where the value of the project did not justify the expense or delay associated with seeking tenders.

Australian National Audit Office Access Clauses

Public Governance, Performance and Accountability Rule 2014

Section 17AG Information on management and accountability

Australian National Audit Office access clauses

  1. If the accountable authority of the entity entered, during the period, into a contract that has a value of $100 000 or more (inclusive of GST) with a contractor, and that does not provide for the Auditor‑General to have access to the contractor’s premises, the annual report must include:
    1. the name of the contractor; and
    2. the purpose and value of the contract; and
    3. the reason why a clause allowing such access was not included in the contract.

78. Entities must provide details of any contract entered into during the reporting period of $100,000 or more (inclusive of GST) that does not provide for the Auditor-General to have access to the contractor’s premises.

79. The inclusion of standard access clauses provides the Australian National Audit Office with access to various types of information held by contractors and third party subcontractors for the purpose of audits, including access to records, information and assets directly relevant to the contract performance. The clauses do not enable access to information that is outside the scope of the specific contract.

Exempt contracts

Public Governance, Performance and Accountability Rule 2014

Section 17AG Information on management and accountability

Exempt contracts

  1. If a contract entered into during the period by the accountable authority of the entity, or a standing offer, with a value of more than $10 000 (inclusive of GST) has been exempted by the accountable authority from being published in AusTender because it would disclose exempt matters under the Freedom of Information Act 1982, the annual report must include:
    1. a statement that the contract or standing offer has been exempted; and
    2. the value of the contract or standing offer, to the extent that doing so does not disclose the exempt matters.

80. The exempt contracts provision addresses the requirement to document, in entities’ annual reports, any contracts entered into during the reporting period, where the contract details were not published in AusTender. This requirement also covers standing offers.

81. An accountable authority may direct in writing that contract details are not to be reported on AusTender if they would be subject to an exemption under the Freedom of Information Act 1982 (FOI Act) and the accountable authority considers that the information is genuinely sensitive and harm is likely to be caused by its disclosure.

82. The PGPA Rule requires that if any contract in excess of $10,000 (inclusive of GST) or a standing offer has been exempted by the accountable authority from being published on AusTender on the basis that it would disclose exempt matters under the FOI Act, the fact that the contract has been exempted and the value of the contract or standing offer must be reported, to the extent that doing so does not in itself disclose the exempt matters.

Small business

Public Governance, Performance and Accountability Rule 2014

Section 17AG Information on management and accountability

Procurement initiatives to support small business

Note: Paragraph 5.4 of the Commonwealth Procurement Rules deals with the requirements for procurement practices of Commonwealth entities to support small and medium enterprises.

  1. The annual report must include the following:
    1. a statement that “[Name of entity] supports small business participation in the Commonwealth Government procurement market. Small and Medium Enterprises (SME) and Small Enterprise participation statistics are available on the Department of Finance’s website.”;
    2. an outline of the ways in which the procurement practices of the entity support small and medium enterprises;
    3. if the entity is considered by the Department administered by the Finance Minister as material in nature—a statement that “[Name of entity] recognises the importance of ensuring that small businesses are paid on time. The results of the Survey of Australian Government Payments to Small Business are available on the Treasury’s website.”.

Note: Paragraph 5.4 of the Commonwealth Procurement Rules deals with the requirements for procurement practices of Commonwealth entities to support small and medium enterprises.

83. The Australian Government is committed to entities sourcing at least 10 per cent of procurement by value from small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs). The Commonwealth Procurement Rules state that, to ensure that SMEs can engage in fair competition for Australian Government business, officials should apply procurement practices that do not unfairly discriminate against SMEs and provide appropriate opportunities for SMEs to compete.

84. Annual reports must include a statement that refers readers to the statistics on SMEs’ participation in Commonwealth Government procurement on the Department of Finance’s website which are available at https://www.finance.gov.au/government/procurement/statistics-australian-government-procurement-contracts-.’

85. Entities must also include in their annual reports a brief statement on the ways in which their procurement practices support SMEs, consistent with paragraph 5.4 of the Commonwealth Procurement Rules. This statement may include some of the following initiatives or practices:

  • the Commonwealth Contracting Suite for low-risk procurements valued under $200,000;
  • Australian Industry Participation plans in whole-of-government procurement where applicable;
  • the Small Business Engagement Principles (outlined in the government’s Industry Innovation and Competitiveness Agenda), such as communicating in clear, simple language and presenting information in an accessible format; or
  • electronic systems or other processes used to facilitate on-time payment performance, including the use of payment cards.

86. Entities that are considered material in nature, as characterised by the Department of Finance in the PGPA Flipchart must include a statement in their annual reports referring readers to the on-time payment performance results, which will be available on the website of the Department responsible for small business. This is currently the Department of Industry, Science, Energy and Resources.

Plain English and clear design

Public Governance, Performance and Accountability Rule 2014

17AC Plain English and clear design

            (1) The annual report for a non‑corporate Commonwealth entity must be prepared having regard to the interests of the Parliament and any other persons who are interested in the annual report.

             (2)  Information included in the annual report must be relevant, reliable, concise, understandable and balanced, including through doing the following, where practicable:

                     (a)  using clear design (for example, through headings and adequate spacing);

                     (b)  defining acronyms and technical terms (for example, in a glossary);

                     (c)  using tables, graphs, diagrams and charts;

                     (d)  including any additional matters as appropriate.

  1. Annual reports are key documents of accountability and transparency to the Parliament and the public. Subsection 17AC(1) of the PGPA Rule requires the annual reports prepared by entities to inform the Parliament and other interested persons. That is, annual reports should be prepared to best provide readers with a clear account of the operations and performance of the entity for the reporting period.
  2. Subsection 17AC(2) of the PGPA Rule requires the information included in annual reports to be relevant, reliable, concise, understandable and balanced. To promote this, the PGPA Rule lists the following criteria to be used where practicable:
  • using clear design (for example, through headings and adequate space)
  • defining acronyms and technical terms (for example, in a glossary)
  • using tables, graphs, diagrams and charts
  • including any additional matters as appropriate.

Appendix A: Entity resource statements and resource for outcomes

Entity resource statements

  1. Non-corporate Commonwealth entities are required to summarise the total resources of the entity and the total payments made by the entity in a table. The Report on Financial Performance section under Part 2 of this guide discusses this requirement.
  2. The preferred format for this table is provided below. The table should be included as an appendix to the annual report. Agency resource statements provide information about the various funding sources that are available to the agency and that the agency may draw against.
  3. The suggested format for an entity resource statement in the annual report has been designed to allow entities to reconcile the final usage of all resources in cash terms, by declaring the actual available appropriation for the relevant reporting period (including cash balances carried forward and further adjustments such as section 75 transfers under the PGPA Act and advances to the Finance Minister), and comparing this to the actual payments made.
  4. Additionally, for departmental appropriations and special accounts, information about any remaining balance that will be carried over to the next reporting period should also be reported.
  5. The preferred format for the table, which is consistent with Table 1.1 in the Portfolio Budget Statements, is set out below.

 Expenses by outcomes

6. The annual report should also include in an appendix a table for each outcome showing the total expenses for the outcome.

7. Entities should present the information by way of a table that corresponds to that contained in the ‘Budgeted expenses for outcome’ table in the relevant Portfolio Budget Statements (and where relevant, the corresponding Portfolio Additional Estimates Statements). This table is now presented by appropriation source rather than against specific programs and administered expenses.

8. The information in the table must reconcile with the relevant portion in the financial statements. In reconciling the information for each outcome, the actual expenses (column 2 in the table below) should agree with the appropriate line in the financial statements (as required by rule 34(1) of the PGPA (Financial Reporting) Rule 2015.

9. The required format for the table, which is consistent with a Table 2.1 in the Portfolio Budget Statements, is set out below.

Financial Statements Summary

The below financial statements summary data templates are a subset of the full audited financial statements contained in your entity’s annual report. These line items are used for the purpose of populating the find data function of www.transparency.gov.au for comparison across all Commonwealth entities and companies.

These individual line items should be read in isolation of each other. In many cases the “total” lines will not equal the sum of the previous line items above. This is because there may be other line items that are included in full audited financial statements, but these are not to be inserted or added to these data templates.

The presentation of expenses and liabilities should be on a positive basis. That is, the absolute value for expenses and liabilities should be provided in the data templates below, do not use negatives or brackets. Where a particular line item has a zero (0) value for your entity, these are to be reported as a 0, in the data templates. Cells are not to be left blank or contain the (-) symbol. This is to ensure consistency of the information across all Commonwealth entities.
