Statement of responsibility

Annual Report for the year ended 20 June 2008.

In terms of the Public Finance Act 1989 and the Public Audit Act 2001, I am responsible, as Controller and Auditor-General, for the accuracy and judgements used in the preparation of the financial statements, and for establishing and maintaining systems of internal control designed to provide ongoing assurance of the integrity and reliability of financial reporting.

Appropriate systems of internal control have been employed to ensure that:

  • all transactions are executed in accordance with authority;
  • all transactions are correctly processed and accounted for in the financial records; and
  • the assets of the Office are properly safeguarded.

In my opinion, the information set out in the Statement of service performance, the financial statements, and attached notes to those statements (on pages 27- 36, 42-44, 46, 50-54, 57-59 and 83-112) fairly reflects our service performance, financial activities, and cash flows for the year ended 30 June 2008, and our financial position as at that date.
