As the accountable authority of the Australian Bureau of Statistics (ABS), I present the 2018-19 Annual Performance Statement of the ABS, as required under paragraph 39(1)(a) of the Public Governance, Performance and Accountability Act 2013 (PGPA Act). In my opinion, based on advice from ABS management and the Audit Committee, this performance statement accurately reflects the performance of the ABS against the performance criteria included in its Portfolio Budget Statement1 and ABS Corporate Plan, and complies with subsection 39(2) of the PGPA Act.
