Annual reporting framework
Annual reports are an important tool in assisting the public’s understanding of the operations of government agencies, as well as ensuring financial and performance accountability to Parliament.
Departments, sub-departments and statutory authorities required by section 61 of the Financial Management Act 2006 to prepare annual reports for Parliament. The framework is a guide to ensure that the various reporting obligations on agencies that are required under a range of different pieces of legislation can be readily identified and addressed consistently.
The Public Sector Commissioner's Circular: 2013-01 Annual Reporting, Annual reporting advises agencies of the requirement to prepare, submit and publish an annual report.
To support the circular, the PSC has prepared the Annual reporting framework 2012/13.
We have also provided answers to some Frequently Asked Questions regarding the Annual reporting framework.
