The Hon Tony Abbott MP
Prime Minister
Parliament House


Dear Prime Minister

I am pleased to present my annual report for the period 1 July 2013-30 June 2014.

This report has been prepared in accordance with section 35 of the Inspector-General of Intelligence and Security Act 1986 and reflects the Requirements for annual reports - for departments, executive agencies and FMA Act bodies, as approved by the Joint Committee of Public Accounts and Audit, and updated in May 2014.

Each of the agencies within my jurisdiction has confirmed that those components of the report which relate to them will not prejudice security, the defence of Australia, Australia's relations with other countries, law enforcement operations or the privacy of individuals. The report is therefore suitable to be laid before each House of Parliament.

The report includes my office's audited financial statements as required by section 57 of the Financial Management and Accountability Act 1997.

As required by the Commonwealth Fraud Control Guidelines, I certify that my office has undertaken a fraud risk assessment and has a fraud control plan, both of which are reviewed periodically. I further certify that appropriate fraud prevention, detection, investigation and reporting procedures are in place, which comply with the guidelines applying in 2013-14, and that the office has responded to the mandatory Australian Institute of Criminology annual survey of fraud control data.

Yours sincerely

signature of Vivienne Thom, Inspector-General
