Appendix E: Correction of reporting errors

This appendix corrects the record by explaining a reporting error that occurred in a previous annual report, in accordance with section 17AH(1)(e) of the Public Governance, Performance and Accountability Rule 2014.

A reporting error was made on page 195 of the Australian Criminal Intelligence Commission Annual Report 2017–18.

The section headed ‘Exempt contracts’ provided figures regarding the number and value of contracts not published on AusTender.

Those figures incorrectly included contracts not published due to either:


  • the procurement being exempt from publication under paragraph 2.6 of the Commonwealth Procurement Rules.

The number and value of those contracts was not required to be reported.

Under section 17AG(9) of the Public Governance, Performance and Accountability Rule 2014, the ‘Exempt contracts’ reporting requirement relates to contracts that are not published on AusTender because to do so would disclose exempt matters under the Freedom of Information Act 1982. No ACIC contracts met that criterion in 2017–18.
