Dear Minister

I am pleased to present the Annual Report of the Department of Transport and Regional Services for the year ended 30 June 2004.

The report has been prepared in accordance with section 63 of the Public Service Act 1999, which also requires that you table the report in the parliament.

The report summarises the department's performance and includes our audited financial statements as required by section 57 of the Financial Management and Accountability Act 1997. It includes other information such as that required by:

  • paragraph 5.15(2) of the Airports (Environment Protection) Regulations 1997
  • section 29 of the Air Navigation Act 1920
  • section 20 of the Aircraft Noise Levy Collection Act 1995, and
  • various 'whole of government' Acts as highlighted on the contents page.

The report also incorporates a range of other information to put our activities into context, such as an overview of the department's financial, environmental and social performance (our 'triple bottom line').

Yours sincerely

Michael J. Taylor
