Appendix 2: Non-financial performance

Reading the AMSA 2015-16 performance statement

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.

PERFORMANCE CRITERION

Details the measures, and the targets for the year.

RESULTS

Details our annual result for the measure. The results can be an average or cumulative total, depending on the nature of the measure.

For the performance tables, the status is a summary ‘traffic light’ of the overall result:

 Target met or exceeded
 Minor negative variance to target
 Major negative variance to target

For projects and programs, the ‘traffic lights’ indicate:

 On track
 Minor issues, but recoverable
 Major issues, management intervention required
 Complete

ANALYSIS

Provides any additional commentary on the result (if required). If there is more commentary on the result in the body the AMSA 2015-16 Annual Report, the page number is provided for cross-reference.

METHOD

Describes the method used to generate the result - quantitative count, and/or qualitative assessment, and where the information drawn from, i.e. (system data).

CRITERION SOURCE

Details:

  • the page number in the AMSA 2015-19 Corporate Plan where you can find the measure.
  • the page number in the 2014-15 Portfolio Budget Statement (Infrastructure and Regional Development) where you can find the measure.
  • whether the measure is one AMSA is using to respond to the Regulator Performance Framework (RPF)
  • and if yes to the RPF, which RPF key performance indicator (KPI) the measure relates to (1-6). The RPF KPIs are:
    • KPI 1: Regulators do not unnecessarily impede the efficient operations of regulated entities.
      KPI 2: Communication with regulated entities is clear, targeted and efficient.
      KPI 3: Actions undertaken by regulators are proportionate to the regulatory risk being managed.
      KPI 4: Compliance and monitoring approaches are streamlined and coordinated.
      KPI 5. Regulators are open and transparent in the dealings with regulated entities.
      KPI 6: Regulators actively contribute to the continuous improvement of regulatory frameworks.

 

We measure our performance against the strategies, objectives and deliverables set out in the Portfolio Budget Statements 2015-16 (PBS) and Corporate Plan 2015-2019 (CP). These can also be found on our Plan on a Page. These documents are available on our website (amsa.gov.au).

This appendix details our performance targets, and results against those targets, separated by strategic challenge.

Statement of preparation

As the accountable authority of the Australian Maritime Safety Authority (AMSA), the Board presents AMSA’s 2015-16 annual performance statement, as required under paragraph 39(1)(a) of the Public Governance, Performance and Accountability Act 2013 (PGPA Act). In the opinion of the Board, based on advice from AMSA management and the Board Audit Committee, the annual performance statement accurately reflects AMSA’s performance and complies with subsection 39(2) of the PGPA Act.
