Planning and reporting

Corporate plan

The Australian Submarine Agency (ASA) Corporate Plan is the basis for performance reporting to Government and the Australian people. It sets out the purpose and operating context of the agency, the key activities the ASA will undertake to achieve its purpose and the results it expects to achieve over a four year period in line with Section 35 of the Public Governance, Performance and Accountability Act 2013.

Annual reports

Annual reports are one of the formal accountability mechanisms between Government, Departments, Parliament, and the public.

The ASA Annual Report will detail performance against the organisation's purpose, outcomes, key activities, and performance targets established in the ASA Corporate Plan and the Budgets.

The report also provides information about the agency organisational structure and governance practices, challenges faced by different programs and initiatives, along with the measures and policy directions to overcome these challenges.

The ASA's first Annual Report will be published on this page when available.

Senate Order 12 - Agency files

ASA is required to prepare a report in response to Senate Order 12, known as the Harradine Report, every 6 months. The motion by Senator Harradine was agreed by the Senate on 14 November 1994.

The original Senate Order was amended in 1998 and now requires ASA to also publish the indexed list of all relevant corporate file titles with the following exclusions:  

  • files transferred to the National Archives of Australia
  • case related files
  • files related to the internal administration of ASA.

In accordance with the Order, some information in file titles have been excluded such as:

  • commercially confidential information
  • identifiable personal information
  • security classified information.

The lists are required to be tabled twice a year, once in the Spring sitting (file titles created in the preceding January to June) and once in the Autumn sitting (file titles created in the preceding July to December).
