Parliament House
CANBERRA ACT 2600

Dear Minister

I am pleased to submit the Department of Human Services Annual Report for the year ending 30 June 2015, as required by section 63 of the Public Service Act 1999 (the Act). Subsection 63(1) of the Act requires me to provide you with this report for presentation to the Parliament on the department’s activities during the year.

The report has been prepared in accordance with the Requirements for annual reports for departments, executive agencies and FMA Act bodies, approved by the Joint Committee of Public Accounts and Audit.

The report meets my reporting requirements under the Child Support (Registration and Collection) Act 1988, the Child Support (Assessment) Act 1989 and the Human Services (Medicare) Act 1973.

The report also includes information on the data-matching program for the period 1 July 2014 to 30 June 2015 required by subsection 12(4) of the Data-Matching Program (Assistance and Tax) Act 1990. I am required to provide the report on the data-matching program to the Information Commissioner.

In accordance with the Commonwealth Fraud Control Framework, the department has prepared fraud risk assessments and fraud control plans and has in place appropriate fraud prevention, detection, investigation, reporting and data collection procedures and processes. We have also taken all reasonable measures to minimise the incidence of fraud and to investigate and recover the proceeds of fraud against the department.

Yours sincerely

signature
