Statement of Responsibility

Section Five – Financial Statements

Statement of Responsibility

In terms of sections 35 and 45 of the Public Finance Act 1989, I am responsible, as Chief Executive of the Ministry for Culture and Heritage, for the preparation of the Ministry’s financial statements and statement of service performance, and for the judgements made in the process of producing those statements.

I have the responsibility of establishing and maintaining, and I have established and maintained, a system of internal control procedures designed to provide reasonable assurance as to the integrity and reliability of financial reporting.

In my opinion, these financial statements and statement of service performance fairly reflect the financial position and operations of the Ministry for the year ended 30 June 2008.
