1. Statement of responsibility

As Director General, I have worked with other Executive members, principal officers and managers who are responsible for particular internal control processes, to provide reasonable assurance that DECCW is achieving its objectives and using its resources efficiently. These processes include:

  • reporting to me and the Executive on aspects of organisational performance

  • controlling how expenditure and staff resources are managed

  • managing a program of internal audits that focuses on operational and financial risk

  • contracting out various independent external assessments of aspects of our work.

I participate in an independently chaired statutory conservation audit and compliance committee established under the National Parks and Wildlife Act 1974 that reports to the Minister. DECCW also has an Audit and Risk Committee with an independent chair and members. Details of internal audits and external assessments are provided in Chapter 6 of this report. To the best of my knowledge, all these control processes have operated satisfactorily during the reporting year.
