As required under the Health Workforce Australia (Abolition) Act 2014 (Abolition Act), I provide you, to table in each House of the Parliament, with the Health Workforce Australia (HWA) Final Annual Report for the period 1 July 2013 to 7 October 2014 (Reporting Period), which reports on the performance and functions of HWA.
The Abolition Act was passed through Parliament on 22 September 2014 and received the Royal Assent on 24 September 2014. The Health Workforce Australia Act 2009 (HWA Act) was repealed pursuant to Schedule 1, Part 2 of the Abolition Act. Schedule 1, Parts 2 and 3 of the Abolition Act commenced on 8 October 2014, being the day fixed by Proclamation. The functions and programmes of HWA were moved to the Department of Health.
This Report fulfills the requirements for the Final Annual Report under the Abolition Act.
The Australian National Audit Office performed the audit of HWA’s financial statements. To further protect the Commonwealth against fraud, unrecorded liabilities and other risks, the Department has undertaken internal and independent quality assurance over the financial statements.
