Annual Report 2001-2002

Financial Statements

Independent Audit
Report

To the Attorney General

Scope

I have audited
the financial statements of the Human Rights and Equal Opportunity
Commission for the year ended 30 June 2002. The financial Statements
comprise:

  • Statement
    by the President;
  • Statements
    of Financial Performance, Finacial Position and Cash Flows;
  • Schedules
    of Contingencies and Commitments; and
  • Notes to and
    forming part of the Financial Statements.

The President
of the Human Rights and Equal Opportunity Commission is responsible
for the preparation and presentation of the financial statements and
the information they contain. I have conducted an independent audit
of the financial statements in order to express an opinion on them
to you.

The audit has
been conducted in accordance with the Australian National Audit Office
Auditing Standards, which incorporate the Australian Auditing Standards,
to provide reasonable assurance as to whether financial statements
are free of material misstatement. Audit procedures included examination,
on a test basis, of evidence supporting the amounts and other disclosures
in the financial statements and the evaluation of accounting policies
and significant accounting estimates. These procedures have been undertaken
to form an opinion as to whether, in all material respects, the financial
statements are presented fairly in accordance with Accounting Standards
and other mandatory professional reporting requirements in Australia
and statutory requirements so as to present a view which is consistent
with my understanding of the Human Rights and Equal Opportunity Commission's
financial position, its financial performance and its cash flows.

The audit opinion
expressed in this report has been formed on the above basis.

Audit Opinion

In my opinion
the financial statements:

(i) have been
prepared in accordance with Finance Minister's Orders made under
the Financial Management and Accountability Act 1997; and

(ii) give a
true and fair view, in accordance with applicable Accounting Standards
and other mandatory professional reporting requirements in Australia
and the Finance Minister's Orders, of the financial position of
Human Rights and Equal Opportunity Commission as at 30 June 2002,
and its financial performance and cash flows for the year then ended.
