Dear Minister

On behalf of the Council of the National Gallery of Australia, I have pleasure in submitting to you, for presentation to each House of Parliament, the National Gallery of Australia’s annual report covering the period 1 July 2018 to 30 June 2019.

This report is submitted to you as required by section 46 of the Public Governance, Performance and Accountability Act 2013 (PGPA Act). It is consistent with the requirements set out in the PGPA Rule 2014, Division 3A, Subdivision B (17BB–17BF), and due consideration has been given to the resources issued by the Department of Finance: Resource Management Guide 134: Annual performance statements for Commonwealth entities and Resource Management Guide 136: Annual reports for corporate Commonwealth entities.

I also present the 2018–19 annual performance statements for the National Gallery of Australia, as required under paragraph 39(1)(a) of the PGPA Act. In my opinion, these annual performance statements are based on properly maintained records, accurately reflect the performance of the entity and comply with subsection 39(2) of the PGPA Act.

The financial statements were prepared in accordance with the Finance Minister’s Orders made under the PGPA Act.

Yours sincerely

Ryan Stokes
Chair of Council
