Each year, the annual report is the primary vehicle for the department to celebrate its achievements and to provide an account of its performance to Parliament and the community.
The production of the annual report is a collaborative effort involving contributions throughout the department, including: corporate executive; project steering group; content working group; compliance working group; KPI working groups; and graphic designers.
The department was proud to receive silver and bronze for distinguished achievements in reporting at the 2018 Australasian Reporting Awards.
The Australasian Reporting Awards is an independent not-for-profit organisation run by volunteer professionals concerned with the quality of financial and business reporting.
It is an honour to be recognised alongside leaders in the business, not-for-profit and government sectors for excellent annual reporting.
In addition the department received two W.S. Lonnie awards for the former Department of Mines and Petroleum Annual Report 2016-17:
These awards are a reflection of the hard work and dedication of everyone involved in recognising and reporting our achievements during the year and our commitment to good governance, transparency and accountability.
