Dear Treasurer

I am pleased to present the annual report of the Treasury for the year ended 30 June 2015.

This report has been prepared in accordance with section 46 of the Public Governance, Performance and Accountability Act 2013 (PGPA Act) and section 63 of the Public Service Act 1999 (PS ACT). Subsection 46(1) of the PGPA Act and subsection 63(1) of the PS Act requires the Secretary to the department to provide a copy of the report to the agency Minister for presentation to the Parliament. The guidelines approved on behalf of the Parliament by the Joint Committee of Public Accounts and Audit provide that a copy of the annual report is to be laid before each house of the Parliament on or before 31 October.

The report includes the Treasury’s audited financial statements, prepared under section 42 of the PGPA Act.

In addition, and as required by the Commonwealth Fraud Control Framework, I certify that I am satisfied that the Treasury has in place appropriate fraud control mechanisms that meet the Treasury’s needs and that comply with the guidance applying in 2014-15.

Yours sincerely


John A. Fraser
