Annual Performance Statements

Annual Performance Statements

As the accountable authority of the National Film and Sound Archive of Australia, I present the 2015–16 annual performance statements of the National Film and Sound Archive of Australia, as required under paragraph 39(1)(a) of the Public Governance, Performance and Accountability Act 2013 (PGPA Act).

In my opinion, these annual performance statements are based on properly maintained records, accurately reflect the performance of the entity, and comply with subsection 39(2) of the PGPA Act.

Reporting approach

We measure and report on our performance according to:

  • how we have achieved our Purposes (as outlined in our Corporate Plan 2015–16 to 2018–19), and
  • our Outcome and Program key performance indicators (as published in our 2015–16 Portfolio Budget Statements).

As a national collecting institution, we are also required to report against key performance indicators (KPIs) set by the Department of Communications and the Arts, published as Program 1.1 KPIs in our Portfolio Budget Statements 2015–16.

Figure 1 provides an overview of our performance framework.
