Reporting requirements—Annual reports

Heading: inserted, on 25 January 2005, by section 16 of the Public Finance Amendment Act 2004 (2004 No 113).

43 Departments must prepare annual reports


As soon as practicable after the end of each financial year, each department must prepare a report on the operations of the department for that financial year, excluding operations on which any departmental agency hosted by the department is required to report under section 43A.


Not later than 15 working days after receiving an audit report under section 45D, the department must provide the annual report and the audit report to its responsible Minister.


This section does not limit any provision in any other Act that requires the chief executive of a department to provide an annual report, but the chief executive need not provide a separate report under each enactment.

Section 43: replaced, on 18 July 2013, by section 25 of the Public Finance Amendment Act 2013 (2013 No 50).
