Part 2.1: 2018-19 Annual Performance Statements

As the accountable authority of the Department of Health, I present the Department of Health 2018-19 Annual Performance Statements as required under paragraphs 39(1)(a) of the Public Governance, Performance and Accountability Act 2013 (PGPA Act), and section 16F of the Public Governance, Performance and Accountability Rule 2014. In my opinion, these Annual Performance Statements are based on properly maintained records, accurately reflect the performance of the entity for the reporting period, and comply with subsection 39(2) of the PGPA Act.
