Dear Minister

I am pleased to present the Annual Report of the Australian Transport Safety Bureau (ATSB), reporting on our operations for the year ended 30 June 2017.

This annual report has been prepared in accordance with the requirements for non-corporate Commonwealth entities under section 46 of the Public Governance, Performance and Accountability Act 2013(PGPA Act) and summarises the ATSB’s performance for the year.

The report includes the ATSB’s financial statements as required by section 42 of the PGPA Act and an audit report on those statements in accordance with section 43 of the same Act.

In addition to fulfilling the requirements of the PGPA Act, the report satisfies section 63A of the Transport Safety Investigation Act 2003.

I also certify that I am satisfied that the ATSB has prepared risk assessment and fraud control plans and has in place appropriate fraud prevention, detection, investigation, reporting and data collection procedures and processes that meet the specific needs of the ATSB and comply with the Commonwealth Fraud Control Framework.

Yours sincerely
