I, Nigel Hadgkiss, as the accountable authority of the Australian Building and Construction Commission, present the 2016–17 annual performance statements, as required under section 39(1)(a) of the Public Governance, Performance and Accountability Act 2013 (PGPA Act). In my opinion, these annual performance statements are based on properly maintained records, accurately reflect the performance of the entity, and comply with subsection 39(2) of the PGPA Act.
