Committee Details

Legislative Assembly Public Bodies Review Committee

The Committee examines annual reports of all public bodies and enquires into and reports on the adequacy and accuracy of all financial and operational information, and on any matters arising from the annual report concerning the efficient and effective achievement of the agency's objectives.

PUBLIC SECTOR ANNUAL REPORTING WORKSHOP
The Public Bodies Review Committee and the Public Accounts Committee hosted a
half day workshop at Parliament House on Monday 23 June 2008. See below for the
workshop programme and presentations.



Details of a previous workshop held in 2006 are available from the Secretariat
on request.

PREMIER'S ANNUAL REPORTS AWARDS
Following a review of its participation in the Premier's Annual Reports Awards,
the Public Bodies Review Committee has resolved to cease its involvement in the
Awards. The 2010 Awards are the final ones in which the Committee will
participate.

The Committee considered that over the five years of its involvement, the
overall standard of entrants had improved so markedly that it was time to adopt
another approach to examine annual reports.

Rather than concentrating on those agencies which choose to enter the Awards,
the Committee has developed an on-going inquiry program that seeks to
scrutinise and assess annual reports from the entire public sector spectrum.
This program reflects the core functions of the Committee and is intended to
identify variations in the standard of public sector annual reporting and
improve the standard, where necessary.
