Dear Ministers

On behalf of the Board of Directors, I am pleased to present Defence Housing Australia’s (DHA) Annual Report 2019–20 for the year ended 30 June 2020 (the report).

The report has been prepared in accordance with the Public Governance, Performance and Accountability Act 2013 (PGPA Act), related instruments and guidance material, including the Public Governance, Performance Accountability Rule 2014 and Commonwealth Government Business Enterprise Governance and Oversight Guidelines.

In the Board’s opinion, the report is based on properly maintained records and accurately reflects DHA’s performance against the purposes and performance measures set out in our Corporate Plan 2019–20 to 2022–23 and Statement of Corporate Intent 2019–20.

I trust that while this report is primarily a mechanism of accountability to the Australian Government, it will also be a valuable resource for DHA’s customers, landlords, government organisations at all levels, industry and the general community.

I commend this report to you as a record of DHA’s achievements and compliance, and request that you present it to the Parliament in accordance with section 46(1) of the PGPA Act.

Yours sincerely

Hon J.A.L. (Sandy) Macdonald
