PUBLIC SECTOR ANNUAL REPORTING WORKSHOPThe 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 AWARDSFollowing 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.NSW PUBLIC SECTOR ANNUAL REPORTS AWARD WINNERS:2006Gold: NSW HealthSilver: NSW Fire BrigadesBronze: Audit Office of NSW2007Gold: Legal Aid Commission of NSWSilver: Audit Office of NSWBronze: NSW Health2008Gold: Audit Office of NSWSilver: NSW HealthBronze: NSW Fire Brigades2009Gold: Legal Aid NSWSilver: NSW HealthBronze: NSW Fire Brigades2010Gold: Judicial Commission of NSW; Housing NSWSilver: Legal Aid NSW
