Mr President

Pursuant to section 65 of the Parliamentary Service Act 1999, I give you a report, for presentation to the Senate, on the activities of the Department of the Senate for the year ended 30 June 2016.

The report includes the department's audited financial statements, prepared under section 42 of the Public Governance, Performance and Accountability Act 2013, and an annual performance statement as required by section 39 of that Act.

In addition, and as required by the Commonwealth Fraud Control Framework, I certify that I am satisfied that the department has in place appropriate fraud control mechanisms that meet its needs and comply with the guidance applying in 2015–16

Yours sincerely

Rosemary Laing
