The annual performance statement reports on the performance measures and major projects detailed in the AMSA 2015-19 Corporate Plan. Essentially, the annual performance statement is the ‘bookend’ to the corporate plan.
Performance is reported by strategic challenge (SC) and by functional area (i.e. ship safety) - as they appear in the corporate plan. Our performance results (less projects) are reported using the format below where applicable.
