N/A: element not applicable regarding annual reporting compliance

The ACT Ombudsman is a public authority within the meaning of the Annual Reports (Government Agencies) Act 2004. The ACT Ombudsman is unable to report against some aspects of the Chief Minister's 2004 Annual Report Directions.

Elements on which reports cannot be provided mainly relate to areas where ACT Ombudsman functions are intrinsically linked with broader Commonwealth Ombudsman organisational operations, and include:

  • financial statements and financial reports
  • whole-of-government issues
  • risk management and internal audit arrangements
  • fraud prevention arrangements
  • staffing profile and human resource management issues
  • procurement contracting principles and processes
  • workplace injury prevention and management
  • capital works management
  • asset management strategy
  • ecologically sustainable development and fuel management plans.

Reporting on these issues is provided for the office as a whole through the Commonwealth Ombudsman Annual Report. See also Chapter 2, performance.
