A guide to preparing performance information for annuals


The Audit Office has recently completed a performance audit of the information published in the annual reports of eight public sector agencies. Although there is much guidance material on preparing annual reports, the performance audit found that the quality of published performance information in annual reports often falls short of what is considered best practice.

The aim of this Guide is to assist agencies to prepare annual reports that provide performance information that demonstrates accountability for the expenditure of public monies.
