Dear Minister

On behalf of the National Film and Sound Archive of Australia Board, it gives me great pleasure to submit to you, for presentation to each House of Parliament, the Annual Report for the National Film and Sound Archive of Australia (NFSA) covering the period 1 July 2017 to 30 June 2018.

The NFSA Board is responsible under section 46 of the Public Governance and Performance Accountability Act 2013 for the preparation and content of the Annual Report. I therefore present it in accordance with that legislation and section 41 of the National Film and Sound Archive Act 2008.

The report has also been prepared with regard to the Public Governance, Performance and Accountability Amendment (Corporate Commonwealth Entity Annual Reporting) Rule 2016, as approved by the Joint Committee of Public Accounts and Audit made available by the Department of Finance on 5 May 2016, and under subsections 63(2) and 70(2) of the Public Service Act 1999.

In accordance with a resolution of the NFSA Board passed on 19 September 2018 we accept this report as being a fair and accurate representation of the organisation’s performance during the 2017–18 financial year. We commend the NFSA’s 2017–18 Annual Report to you.

Yours sincerely
