The Public Governance, Performance and Accountability Act 2013 (PGPA Act) requires that corporate Commonwealth entities prepare an annual report in accordance with the relevant rule.

The AMSA Annual Report 2019–20 is presented in accordance with the Public Governance, Performance and Accountability Rule 2014 and the Australian Maritime Safety Authority Act
1990
(AMSA Act).

The report is to be presented to the responsible minister by 15 October and requires the minister to table the report in both Houses of the Parliament as soon as practicable after receiving it. It is the government’s preferred policy that the reports be tabled by 31 October. AMSA will also publish its annual report on the Transparency Portal using the digital reporting tool (section 17BCA of the PGPA Rule). You can find the digital report here: transparency.gov.au

AMSA reports to the Australian Parliament and Government through the Deputy Prime Minister and Minister for Infrastructure, Transport and Regional Development the Hon Michael McCormack MP.

Under the PGPA and AMSA Acts, members of the AMSA Board, as the accountable authority, are responsible for this annual report.

This report provides a review of activities undertaken in 2019–20, using the reporting arrangements set out in the Portfolio Budget Statements 2019–20 and the AMSA Corporate Plan
2019–20 (covering the period 2019–20 to 2022–23).
