The Transparency Portal, at transparency.gov.au, is the new central repository of publicly available corporate information for all Commonwealth bodies.

For the 2018-19 reporting cycle, a complete set of annual reports for all Commonwealth entities and Commonwealth companies will be available on this website after they are tabled in Parliament. To see the 2017-18 annual reports of participating pilot entities please see here.

Over time, the Transparency Portal will be expanded to incorporate additional information, such as corporate plans and portfolio statements, with a view to establishing a single authoritative source of reporting requirements under the Public Governance, Performance and Accountability Act 2013.

To help us build the best possible website, we would like to hear your feedback. So please tell us what you think.
