Australian public sector organisations shone once again at this year’s Australasian Reporting Awards, a 65-year-old institution that supports high standards of accountability and good governance.

The CSIRO has taken out the top prize in the government category of the 2015 Australasian Reporting Awards for its most recent annual report.

The ARA judges praised the “well-presented and easy-to-read” report for making a wide range of sometimes complex topics easy to comprehend, adding:

“The use of relevant pictures and explanatory captions capture attention and encourage the reader to read the whole story.”

The research body has consistently met the standard to receive a non-competitive “gold award” in the ARAs every year since 2012. This year, 33 Australian public sector organisations met the “gold” standard, as did Auckland Transport from across the Tasman.
