Commonwealth Authorities and Companies Act 1997 (CAC Act) bodies are entities that are subject to the Act:

  • Commonwealth authorities – a statutory authority (ie a body created by legislation) that is a separate legal entity from the Commonwealth and which has the power to hold money in its own account (AMSA falls under this category)
  • Commonwealth companies – companies under the Corporations Act 2001 in which the Commonwealth has a controlling interest.

The judges’ report on AMSA’s online annual report read:

This is an attractive report in both the HTML and PDF versions. Pictures and graphics displayed well. The report made provision for complicated tables to be downloaded separately in the HTML version. The background graphics in the report were visually attractive and enhanced the related contents. The report is accessible and both versions work well for people with vision impairment.

AMSA congratulates all of the other 2012-13 annual report award recipients.
