Statement of preparation

I, David Fricker, as the accountable authority of the National Archives of Australia, present the National Archives’ annual performance statement for the period 1 July 2018 to 30 June 2019, as required under paragraph 39(1)(b) of the Public Governance, Performance and Accountability Act 2013 (PGPA Act) and section 16F of the PGPA Rule 2014. These results are reported against the performance measures outlined in the National Archives of Australia Corporate Plan 2018–19 to 2021–22, and as published in the National Archives’ 2018–19 Portfolio Budget Statements.

In my opinion, the annual performance statement is based on properly maintained records, accurately reflects the performance of the National Archives, and complies with subsection 39(1)(b) of the PGPA Act and section 16F of the PGPA Rule.
