Appendix I-Airport performance data

The information in this appendix supplements the performance reporting in the body of the annual report, particularly the summary information on airport performance for Output 2.3.3.

I.1 Airport lease review meetings

The Department conducts annual lease reviews of the 22 leased federal airports to ensure compliance with the terms of their leases.

I.2 Airport insurance reviews

The airport leases and original sale documents require that the airports insure against a number of events. The Department assesses the adequacy of airport insurance cover each year.

I.3 Environmental authorisations

The Department may authorise an airport to undertake an action that may result in environmental emission limits being exceeded where the emissions will be no more damaging to the environment than if the limits were met.

I.4 Timeliness of airport expenditure plans and audit reports

The Department monitors airport expenditure obligations under the airport leases and based on the Australian National Audit Office and Joint committee on Public Accountability reporting recommendations.

I.5 Approved major development plans

A major development plan is required for each major development at an airport as defined in section 89 of the Airports Act 1996.
