The Public Governance, Performance and Accountability Act 2013 (PGPA Act) requires that corporate Commonwealth entities prepare an annual report in accordance with the relevant rule.
The AMSA Annual Report 2015-16 is presented in accordance with the Public Governance, Performance and Accountability Rule 2014 and the Australian Maritime Safety Authority Act 1990 (AMSA Act).
The report is to be presented to the responsible minister by 15 October and requires the minister to table the report in both Houses of the Parliament as soon as practicable after receiving it.
AMSA reports to the Australian Parliament and Government through the Minister for Infrastructure and Transport, the Hon. Darren Chester MP.
Under the PGPA and AMSA Acts, the directors of AMSA (the members of the Board) are responsible for this annual report.
This report provides a review of activities undertaken in 2015-16, using the reporting arrangements set out in the Portfolio Budget Statements 2015-16 and the AMSA Corporate Plan 2015-19.
