Guide to the report
This report complies with the formal reporting obligations of the Director General ASNO. It provides an overview of ASNO’s role and performance in supporting nuclear safeguards and the non-proliferation of weapons of mass destruction.
The report has five parts:
- report by the Director General ASNO on key developments in 2014–15 and a preview of the year ahead
- summary of current major issues
- functional overview of ASNO, including its operating environment and outcomes – outputs structure – the first outcome demonstrates accountability to Government; the second outlines public outreach and education
- report on ASNO’s performance during 2014–15
- key features of ASNO’s corporate governance and the processes by which ASNO is directed, administered and held accountable.
Because ASNO is funded as a division of the Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade (DFAT), some mandatory annual report information for ASNO is incorporated in the DFAT Annual Report. This includes:
- financial statements
- corporate governance and accountability framework
- external scrutiny
- human resource management, including work health and safety
- asset management
- agency-specific social inclusion strategies
- advertising and market research
- ecologically sustainable development and environmental performance.
A checklist of information included against annual report requirements is set out in the List of Requirements.
