In previous annual reports, CASA reported on its performance against the objectives of the Commonwealth Disability Strategy. In 2007–08, reporting on the employer role defined under the strategy was transferred to the Australian Public Service Commission’s State of the Service Report and the APS Statistical Bulletin. These reports are available from the commission’s website, at www.apsc.gov.au.
In 2010–11, the Commonwealth Disability Strategy was overtaken by the new National Disability Strategy. Progress against the new strategy will be tracked in a separate high-level report to the Council of Australian Governments due in February 2014. The high-level progress report will track achievements under the strategy and provide a picture of how people with disability are faring. This mechanism replaces the practice of Commonwealth agencies reporting on disability-related functions in their annual reports.
