T he M useum exceed ed its previous reco rd visitation by over 2 2 ,0 0 0 to attract a total 4 2 8 ,3 2 3 visitors over the year. In January — the family holiday period w hich provides m useum s w ith their b est figures fo r the year — A N M M ’s visitor num bers w ere higher than every oth er Sydney m useum , fo r the first tim e since it opened nine years ago. V isiting schools also reached th e ir b est-ev er nu m bers as did the M em bers program w hich increased by an extraordinary 9 0 % to 1 1 ,4 8 5 . This popularity w ith our key audiences was due to a particularly rich program o f exhibitions and events, striking a balance betw een the serious and the entertaining, the specialist and the generalist. T h ere was som ething fo r everyone, from rare and precious ob jects and fine artw orks in the exhibitions to ou td oor activities and vessels to explore. The arrival o f the visiting D utch reconstruction o f the 1628 East-Indiaman Batavia gave the M useum a very strong drawcard on top o f the established popularity o f our Navy vessels, w hich included the new ly-op en ed O b eron -class subm arine Onslow. T he subm arine was an im m ediate hit w ith visitors, taking them into a very d ifferent so rt o f m aritim e w orld. To add depth to the spectacle o f die visiting Batavia the M useum created an exhibition, Commerce ScConquest —The Story o j the Dutch United East India Company, w hich included m asterpieces and treasures borrow ed from leading D u tch collections. At the same tim e we opened Secrets o f the Sea — Myth, Lore S^Legend w ith its associated ch ild ren ’s activity cen tre N ep tu n e’s Kingdom . This was one o f the largest and m ost am bitious

O u r success as one o f Sydney’s m ost popular venues fo r con feren ces, launches and fund-raisers, cocktail and dinner parties was recognised when the M useum won the annual Specialty Venue o f the Year Award fo r E xcellen ce.

Travelling exhibitions are on e way in w hich this is achieved, b o th our ow n and overseas exhibitions w hich we have im p orted fo r display h ere, m anaging their tours to oth er states and cou ntries. This year A N M M ’s travelling exhibitions reached an audience o f 3 1 1 ,6 1 5 people around the country. T he largest exhibition on the road fo r us was Ocean Planet, w hich was developed by the U S Sm ithsonian Institution. T h e M aritim e M useums o f Australia P ro je c t Support Schem e (M M A P SS), established in 1 9 9 5 -9 6 and adm inistered by our staff, awarded a fifth round o f grants totalling $ 3 0 ,0 0 0 to 12 institutions around the nation.

Staff assisted m ore than 5 ,0 0 0 research-related enquiries from the public and external organisations (see tables fo r C uratorial services page 2 6 ; Vaughan Evans Library page 3 1 ; C onservation page 3 3 ). Many fam ily history and related research enquiries are now being channelled through the M u seu m ’s W eb Site and its new family history database w hich is p art o f T h e W elcom e W all program . Senior A N M M m anagers have advised th e W estern Australian M aritim e M useum on various aspects o f its $ 3 0 -m illio n redevelopm ent in Frem an tle. O u r exp ertise in m anaging h eritag e vessels and m a jo r o b je cts is often called on, w hich this year included advising on the H M AS Sydney m ast at Bradley’s head and the C am pbell’s W h a rf crane, fo r N ational Parks & W ild life S ervice; providing a professional heritage assessm ent o f Jam es Craig fo r listing on the State R eg ister o f H eritage Item s; and advising RA N on costs o f preserving fo rm e r A ttack class patrol boat G P V Ardent. OUTLO O K For the Sydney 2 0 0 0 O lym pic Gam es the M useum has capitalised on its strategic location at D arling Harbour, w here many O lym pic events are to be held, by providing venues fo r O lym pic G am es hospitality cen tres. W e are confident that we will reap many benefits from an enhanced profile b oth internationally and w ithin Australia. Am ong our O lym pic clients is A ustrade’s Business Club Australia w hich w ill occupy the W h a rf 7 foyer and m o o r a large Incat catam aran ferry alongside as a showcase fo r Australia’s exp o rts. T h e N etherlands O lym pic C o m m ittee is capitalising on the
p resen ce o f Batavia as a flagship fo r its m edia and hospitality cen tre h ere, w hile the Japanese O lym pic C o m m ittee and International Pentathlon U n ion w ill be here too. W h ile i t ’s uncertain how visitor nu m bers will m ove during the O lym pic period , i t ’s
reasonable to assume that overseas in terest in Australia in the m ed iu m -term w ill be boosted by the exposure. T h e M useum , w ith its traditionally high p ro p o rtio n o f overseas visitors, stands to ben efit from any tourism gains. T h e g reatest challenge to any m useum in a changing and com petitive m arketplace is to understand its existing m ark et and to encourage new ones. P art o f our success to date has b een an ability to balance the m ix o f en tertain m en t and serious or specialist interest exhibitions and program s. Aided by m arket research , this will be a key to our decisions about what we are developing fo r the future. For the C entenary o f Federation celebrations we have b een developing Smugglers, Customs StContraband 1 9 0 1 - 2 0 0 1 , w ith generous support from the N ational Council fo r the C entenary o f Federation and Australian Custom s S ervice. It w ill be seen here and around Australia. Its stories are often topical and excitin g and w ill enable us to reach many w ho m ight otherw ise think that Federation and constitutional history are dry fare. W e ’re also ready fo r another anniversary, the sesquicentenary o f the Australian gold rush, w ith Gold Rush:The Australian Experience in the U SA Gallery. Since the M u seu m ’s inception the land it stands on has b een part o f D arling H arbour A u thority’s m anagem ent area, im pacting on several areas o f M useum operations. D H A is being subsum ed by the new Sydney H arbou r F oreshore A uthority. T h e M useum enters a new era forging new strategic relationships w ith SHFA, as well as Sydney H e rita g e F le e t and th e H M B ark E n d eav ou r F ou n d atio n due to th e ir repositioning under the same r o o f at W h a rf 7. O n e o f the strengths w hich will help to position the M useum fo r the future is its location. W h en it opened in 1991 it was on the fringe o f D arling Harbour, and behind it lay the run-dow n backw ater o f P yrm on t. Drawing visitors out o f D arling H arbour and beneath the old P yrm on t bridge was at tim es a struggle. Since then P yrm ont has b e e n re in v e n te d as a v ib ra n t in n e r -c ity re s id e n tia l, e n te r ta in m e n t and com m u n ication industry hub. M o d ern ap artm en t d evelopm ents are sending the population o f the suburb from 3 ,0 0 0 to 2 0 ,0 0 0 . A new light rail tram way passes the M useum , adding to the m onorail and ferries that service the location, and stream s o f the nearby Star C ity C asino’s patrons eddy around the M useum day and night. O p en fo r less than a decade, the Australian N ational M aritim e M useum en ters a new century and m illennium w ith a profile and position perhaps unrivalled by any m aritim e m useum in the world.

On Lamalera in Eastern Indonesia, life depends on an ancient specialisation: catching sperm whales, giant manta rays, sharks and other great creatures of the sea. These are the last truly subsistence whalers. Why have ancient boat-building and hunting techniques survived here and nowhere else? And can whaling ever be justified?

1.1 Deliver a service which is strongly customer focused
1.2 Manage the Museum’s resources for optimal operational outcomes
1.3 Ensure continued service provision through securing appropriate accommodation to m eet the Museum’s needs
PROGRAM SUMMARY EN H A N C IN G R E V E N U E , m inim ising expenses, and financial m anagem ent are keys to improving the services and products we offer our custom ers. This year the Museum established a new perform ance indicator, ‘In teractions’ , as a single ou tcom e against all expend iture. Interactions rep resent all the ways in w hich the M useum delivers services, w ell beyond the traditional ‘gate co u n t’ o f visitors. A 1 9 9 9 -2 0 0 0 baseline o f 1,1 9 8 ,1 9 4 was established fo r future reporting. Managing the introd uction o f G ST w ent sm oothly thanks to tim ely sem inars fo r affected staff w ho benefited from direct consultations w ith A N M M ’s G ST im plem entation consultant W alter & Turnbull. V IS IT O R A M E N ITY enhancem ents included beginning w ork on new South W h a rf facilities described in m o re detail under ‘O rganisational D ev elop m en ts’ , page 5 . The Navy T ick e t w hich pairs our new est large attraction the subm arine Onslow and the popular destroyer Vampire, w ith free audio guides on C D cassette and know ledgeable V olunteer guides, is proving an attractive package particularly fo r visitors w ithout the tim e to take in everything on offer. Sydney by Sail continued to expand its fleet and sailing products w hich offer visitors on-the-w ater experiences from our wharves, as well as providing revenue for the M u seu m .The Store, reporting its full first financial year o f m anagem ent by the M useum after being run by an independent operator from 1991 1 9 9 9 , m ore than doubled its tu rnover (see Revenues table page 3 7 ). This reflected a m ore energetic and creative approach to evaluating m arket needs, sourcing stock relating to cu rren t exhibitions as w ell as b e tte r display. M A R K E T RESEA RC H assists us to m eet the needs o f our present custom ers and shapes the future direction o f the Museum and its exhibitions. ANM M com m issioned Blue M oon Research to conduct a study asking staff, M em bers, current and potential visitors what the ideal m aritim e m useum encompasses. The results are being used to guide up-com ing exhibitions, events and images used in advertising. W e also undertook eight m ajor in-house research projects in 1 9 9 9 including the first surveys o f visitors to the Classic & W ooden Boat Festival. A teachers survey helped align projects m ore closely w ith the educational curriculum and tailor our facilities to school needs. N ew and proposed services tested by m arket research included audio guided tours o f our Navy ships Onslow and Vampire, and a planned visitor map o f die Museum. C U S T O M E R SERV IC E was tested by the visits o f Batavia and Endeavour, as well as the new attraction o f the subm arine Onslow, w hich m eant m ore com p lex tick eting options and longer queues fo r som e attractions. Staff responded well to these new challenges, thanks in part to com p letion o f C u stom er Service training by 130 staff and co n tra cto rs and 1 5 6 V olunteers w orking on the M useum site, designed and com m en ced in 1 9 9 8 -9 9 .

2.1 Develop a range of programs to interpret maritime history
2.2 Maximise the curricula relevance, entertainment value and topicality of products and programs
PROGRAM SUMMARY P R O D U C T S AND P R O G R A M S in place this year created a com bination that was perhaps the strongest in appeal since the M useum op en ed . M o st visibly — thanks b oth to its m edia appeal and to A N M M ’s prim e location in sight o f countless city offices and com m u ters — was Batavia, arguably the largest and m o st sp ectacu lar m u seu m e x h ib it ever to visit this cou n try . T h e N e th e rla n d s’ reco n stru ctio n o f the D u tch East Indiaman Batavia, w recked o ff W estern Australia in 1 6 2 9 , was brought to Australia after years o f planning by a group w hich included prom inent m em bers o f the D utch-A ustralian business com m unity and the M useum . It was com plem ented by an exh ibition , Commerce ScConquest — The Story o f the Dutch United East India Company, developed by AN M M staff to provide a com prehensive in terp retatio n o f the historical co n tex t o f Batavia and th e spice trad e. Am ong its m asterpieces and treasures borrow ed from leading D utch collections was the priceless G reat Cam eo salvaged from the Batavia w reck (pictured page 7 ). From history to the w orld o f m ystery and im agination, Secrets o f the Sea — Myth, Lore & Segend provided a popular cou n terp o in t that helped create record visitor num bers. The Arnhem Land bark artw orks o f Saltwater Country, sm aller photographic exhibitions and shows such as Australie-Australia — LouisVuitton at ANMM w ith its fine objets d ’art — our way o f thanking lon g-tim e acquisitions sponsor Louis V uitton — com pleted this picture o f varied attractions to suit all tastes. C H IL D R E N ’ S A C T IV IT Y SPACES crea ted by sta ff as p a rt o f th e y e a r’s m a jo r exhibitions Ocean Planet and Secrets o f the Sea have b eco m e an essential adjunct to the ob jects and ideas displayed, providing them ed creative activities and play fo r young visitors under the supervision o f trained facilitators. C om bined w ith perform ances such as Bubbles ’n ’ Troubles, a puppet play com m issioned for Ocean Planet, they make visits rew arding fo r all the family and enhance the M useum ’s cru cial ‘fam ily-friendly’ profile. A Sydney Morning H erald survey o f Sydney attractions judged the Australian National M aritim e M useum to have ‘ .. .the best-organised ch ild ren ’s activities o f any m u seu m . . . ’ ( Good Weekend 8 /1 / 00). O U T D O O R S FL O A TIN G E X LIIBITS dem onstrated the broad appeal o f vessels to non-seafarers o f all ages and both sexes, when they are interp reted to provide insights into the human fa cetso f life aboard these com p lex environm ents that are outside m ost p e o p le’s norm al exp erien ce. Australia’s Endeavour replica retu rn ed to her hom e p o r t at th e M u seu m fo r th e la st s c h o o l h o lid a y p e r io d , a fte r a fo u r -y e a r circum navigation o f the w orld. D etailed on-board displays o f 18th -cen tu ry life at sea w ith real and replicated o b jects, from its b rick -and -iron galley and seam en’s mess areas to the cabins o f its famous historical figures, gave the already-high annual visitor num bers a further boost. The popular ex-R A N O beron class submarine Onslow, newly opened at the beginning o f the financial year, operated at peak visitor capacity during the busy holiday and w eekend periods.

T H E USA G A LLER Y is unique in the m useum w orld: a gallery in a national Museum that was funded by another country to celebrate a shared history — the o v er-2 0 0 years o f m aritim e links betw een Australia and the U nited States. It is the result o f a generous U S endow m ent to the M useum as a B icentennial gift to Australia. The USA G allery, w hich is used regularly as a venue by U S and Australian organisations, continued to provide w ider benefits by enhancing links b etw een the tw o cou ntries at diplom atic, business and social levels. O n e o f its features this year was an exhibition from the N ew Bedford W haling Museum in M assachusetts, A Window Back —photography in a whaling port. The G allery ’s curator, a trained m aritim e archaeologist, led the ANM M team assisting w ith the search fo r Jam es C o o k ’s Endeavour in the USA (details this page, b elow ). O n e o f the G allery ’s m ost notable acquisitions, at auction in the U SA , was a sumptuous China-Trade dinner service which belonged to a US m erchant who operated in the 1850s in M elbou rne. M A R IT IM E A R C H A E O L O G Y contributed strongly to the M useum ’s profile as its team o f three m aritim e archaeologists assisted D r Kathy Abbass and the R hode Island M arine A rchaeology Program (R IM A P ) in the search fo r Lord Sandwich ex-H M B Endeavour. The ship is believed to be am ong a British tran sp ort fleet scuttled in 1778 to p ro te ct the harbour during the A m erican w ar o f independence. O ver four weeks 11 square m eters o f the m ost likely site w ere excavated. Exam ination o f the hu ll’s con stru ction along w ith tim ber, stone and sedim ents analysis suggested the w reck was m ost likely one o f the scuttled vessels, but it was n o t Endeavour. T h e w ork laid the foundations for future investigations. This in tern atio n al p ro je c t was su p p orted by a grant fro m T h e M in ister fo r the E n viron m en t and H eritage, Sen ator R o b e r t Hill and ongoing supp ort from T h e M inister fo r the Arts the Hon Peter M cG au ran.T he tea m ’s w ork was greatly enhanced by M axw ell O p tical Ind ustries, A ustralian W ater T ech n o lo g ies, U n ited A irlines, Professor Clause D iessel, U niversity o f N ew castle and D r M ike M acphail, Australian N ational University.

THE VAUGEIAN EVAN S L IB R A R Y ’S g re a te r pu blic p ro file and m o re pleasant research environm ent at W h a rf 7 resulted in a dram atic increase in people visiting the library in person (7 2 8 vs 3 6 4 the previous y ea r).T h e num ber o f requests received by phone, fax and em ail also increased. G ood w orking relationships w ere established w ith th e Syd ney H e rita g e F le e t L ib ra ry w h ic h sh ares fa c ilitie s at W h a r f 7 . Enhancem ents w ere m ade to the L ibrary’s web pages and a Library Intranet site for M useum staff was developed as a gateway to Library facilities. M uch-valued help cam e fro m v o lu n te e r s w ho assisted w ith p u b lic e n q u irie s and in d e x in g th e shipbuilding journ als in the Library co llectio n . T h e Library also shares a volunteer w ith the Society o f Australian G enealogists w hich helps develop ties and mutually beneficial p ro jects. Thanks also to m aritim e artist P eter Yeomans fo r his donation o f a collectio n o f books on m arine painting. T h e planned placem ent o f the Library catalogue on the web did n o t go ahead due to lack o f IT resources but we hope to do so in 2 0 0 0 -2 0 0 1 . Problem s w ith the Kinetica National Bibliographic D atabase resulted in the Library suspending itself from the K inetica D ocu m en t D elivery Service. T h e nu m ber o f Inter-L ibrary loan requests to the M useum fro m oth er Libraries dropped as a resu lt. R e feren ce searches to ok significantly lon ger than w ith ABN and no original cataloguing was added to the N ational Bibliographic D atabase this year. W e hope these issues will be resolved in the n e x t financial year. FL E E T M A IN TEN A N CE benefited from an internal review covering every area o f w ork. This identified the reduction o f ship repair and slipping facilities in the P ort o f Sydney as a threat to the traditional ship and boat repairs carried out on Museum vessels. M useum C ouncil endorsed the need fo r enhanced facilities, a self-sufficient F leet w orkforce and a com m itm ent to training apprentices. In addition to F leet staff listed in Appendix 18 we employed tw o apprentices, M atthew Q uinn and Todd Maiden, through the M etroskills program (form erly the H unter Valley Training Com pany). T he newly-opened submarine Onslow required further conversion w ork fo r its new role as a public display. Shipkeepers for the submarine w ere engaged, a m aintenance plan was developed and Volunteer guides were trained and supervised. The destroyer Vampire, 4 0 years on from its com missioning in 1 9 5 9 , had the superstructure repainted, various aerials refitted and some significant steelw ork replaced. The AN M M Shipyard at Berrys Bay was opened for Heritage W eek where the focus was on the changing face o f Sydney’s w aterfron t.T h e program was booked out.

1.1 Basis o f A ccou n ting The financial statements are required by clause 1(b) of Schedule 1 to the Commonwealth Authorities and Companies Act 1997 and are a general purpose financial report. The statements have been prepared in accordance with: • Requirementsfor the Preparation ojFinancial Statements o j Commonwealth Agencies and Authorities made by the Minister for Finance and Administration in August 1999 (Schedule 2 to Orders to the Commonwealth Authorities and Companies (CAC) Orders); • Australian Accounting Standards; • other authoritative pronouncements of the Australian Accounting Standards Boards; and • the Consensus Views of the Urgent Issues Group. The statements have been prepared having regard to: • Statements of Accounting Concepts; and • the Explanatory Notes to Schedule 2 issued by the Department of Finance and Administration. The financial statements have been prepared on an accrual basis and arc in accordance with historical cost convention, except for certain donated assets which, as noted, are at valuation. All assets arc revalued every three years and, as noted, are disclosed at their revised value. Donated assets are at valuation. Except where stated no allowance is made for the effect of changing prices on the results or on the financial position.

1.2 Changes in A cco u n tin g Policies Changes in accounting policy have been identified in this note under their appropriate headings.
1.3 R ep ortin g by O utcom es A comparison of Budget and Actual figures by outcome specified in the Appropriation Acts relevant to the Museum is presented in Note 2. Any intra-government costs included in the figure ‘net cost to Budget outcomes’ are eliminated in calculating the actual budget outcome for the Government overall. 1.4 A p p rop riation s From 1 July 1999, the Commonwealth Budget has been prepared under an accruals framework. Under this framework, Parliament appropriates moneys to the Museum as revenue appropriations, as loan appropriations and as equity injections. Revenue Appropriations Revenues from government are revenues of the core operating activities of the Museum. Appropriations for outputs are recognised as revenue to the extent they have been received into the Museum’s Bank account or are entitled to be received by the Museum at year end. Non-revenue appropriations Appropriations to the Museum for capital items arc recognised directly in equity, to the extent that the appropriation has been received into the Museum’s Bank account or are entitled to be received by the Museum at year end. 1.5 O ther Revenue Revenue from the sale of goods is recognised upon the delivery of goods to customers. Interest revenue is recognised on a proportional basis taking into account the interest rates applicable to the financial assets. Revenue from the rendering of a service is recognised by reference to the stage of completion of contracts. The stage of completion is determined according to the proportion that costs incurred to date bear to the estimated total costs of the transaction. Resources Received Free o f Charge Services received free of charge are recognised as revenues in the Operating Statement when and only when a fair value can be reliably measured and the services would have been purchased if they had not been donated. Use of the resources is recognised as an expense or an asset, according to whether there is a long term benefit. Contributions of assets at no cost of acquisition or for nominal consideration are recognised at their fair value as revenue and an asset when the Museum gains control over the contributed asset and the asset qualifies for recognition.

1.6 Sponsorships Sponsorship receipts and benefits in kind are included in the financial statements on an accruals basis. Expenses incurred in obtaining sponsorship benefits are considered to be part of the Museumâ€™s normal expenditure and require no separate treatment. 1.7 Employee Entitlem ents Leave The liability for employee entitlements encompasses provisions for annual leave and long service leave. No provision has been made for sick leave as it is non-vesting and the average sick leave taken by employees is less than the annual entitlement for sick leave. The provision for annual leave reflects the value of total annual leave entitlements of all employees at 30 June 2000 and is recognised at its nominal value. The liability for long service leave is recognised and measured at the present value of the estimated future cash flows to be made in respect of all employees at 30 June 2000. In determining the present value of the liability, attrition rates and pay increases through promotion and inflation have been taken into account. Separation and redundancy Provision is also made for separation and redundancy payments in circumstances where the Museum has formally identified positions as excess to requirements, and publicly communicated this information, and a reliable estimate of the amount of the payments can be determined. Superannuation Employees contribute to the Commonwealth Superannuation Scheme and Public Sector Superannuation Scheme. Employer contributions amounting to $463,108 (1998-99: $439,577) in relation to these schemes have been expensed in these financial statements. No liability is shown for superannuation in the Balance Sheet as the employer contributions fully extinguish the accruing liability which is assumed by the Commonwealth. Employer Superannuation Productivity Benefit contributions totalled $149,996).
1.8 Leases A distinction is made between finance leases, which effectively transfer from the lessor to the lessee substantially all the risks and benefits incidental to ownership of leased assets, and operating leases, under which the lessor effectively retains all such risks and benefits. The Museum has no current finance leases. Operating lease payments are charged to expense on a basis which is representative of the pattern of benefits derived from the leased assets.

1.9 B orrow in g Costs All borrowing costs are expensed as incurred except to the extent that they are directly attributable to qualifying assets, in which case they are capitalised. The amount capitalised in a reporting period does not exceed the amounts of costs incurred in that period. The Museum has one qualifying asset (Wharf 7 building) for which funds were borrowed specifically. 1.10 Cash For the purpose of the Statement of Cash Flows, cash includes deposits held at call with a bank, cash floats and investments in short term money market instruments. 1.11 Financial Instrum ents Accounting policies in relation to financial instruments are disclosed in Note 20. 1.12 P rop erty, Plant and Equipm ent Asset recognition threshold Purchases of property, plant and equipment are recognised initially at cost in the Balance Sheet, except for purchases costing less than $2,000, which are expensed in the year of acquisition (other than where they form part of a group of similar items which are significant in total). The acquisition of property, plant and equipment free of charge or for a nominal amount is recognised initially at fair value. Revaluations Schedule 2 requires that property plant and equipment be progressively revalued in accordance with the ‘deprival’ method of valuation by no later than 1 July 1999 and thereafter be revalued progressively on that basis every three years. The Museum completed its asset revaluation on 30 June 2000, with asset groups updated as follows: • leasehold improvements have been revalued as at 30 June 1999; • exhibition fitouts have been revalued by type of asset as at 30 June 1999; • plant and equipment, including information technology equipment, have been revalued by type of asset as at 30 June 1999. None of the information technology assets are subject to finance leases; • the National Maritime Collection has been revalued as at 30 June 2000. Leasehold land and buildings were excluded from the 30 June 2000 revaluation as they were less than two years old at die time of revaluation. Assets in each class acquired after each revaluation cycle will be reported on a historic cost or valuation basis, as initially recognised on acquisition, until the next progressive revaluation of that class. The application of the deprival method values land at its current market buying price and other assets at their depreciated replacement cost. Any assets which would not be replaced or are surplus to requirements are valued at net realisable value; at 30 June 2000, there were no assets in this situation. The revaluation in 1999 was conducted by the Australian Valuation Office.

Recoverable amount test The carrying amounts of non-current assets of the Australian National Maritime Museum have been reviewed to determine whether they are in excess of their recoverable amounts. In assessing recoverable amounts, where appropriate, the relevant cash flows have been discounted to their present value. Depreciation and Amortisation Depreciable property, plant and equipment assets are written off to their estimated residual values over their estimated useful lives to the Museum using, in all cases, the straight line method of depreciation. Leasehold improvements are amortised on a straight line basis over the lesser of the estimated useful life of the improvements or the unexpired period of the lease. Depreciation/amortisation rates (useful lives) and methods are reviewed at each balance date and necessary adjustments arc recognised in the current, or current and future reporting periods, as appropriate. Residual values are re-estimated for a change in prices only when assets are revalued. Useful lives or rates of depreciation and amortisation applying to each class, of depreciable asset are as follows: 2000 1999 Buildings on leasehold land 22 years 22 years Leasehold land 105 years 105 years Leasehold improvements Lease te rm o r 10 years Lease term or 10 years Permanent exhibition items 7 years 7 years Plant and equipment 20% - 33% 20% - 33%
The Collection is not depreciated because of its long term nature and the expected appreciation of its historical value. The aggregate amount of depreciation allowed for each class of asset during the reporting period is disclosed in Note 6C. 1.13 Inventories Inventories held represent stock held for resale by the Museum store. Inventories are valued at cost in accordance with AAS 2 Inventories except where no longer required, in which case they are valued at net realisable value. Cost is assigned to individual items of inventory using weighted average costs. 1.14 Bad and Doubtful Debts Bad debts are written off during the year in which they are identified, and expensed to the extent they have not previously been provided for. A review of all outstanding receivables at year end identifies any additional doubtful debts for which a provision and an expense are made. 1.15 T axation The Museum is exempt from all forms of taxation except fringe benefits tax and sales tax on goods purchased for resale.

1.16. Capital Usage Charge A capital usage charge of 12% is imposed by the Commonwealth on the net assets of the Museum.
1.17 Foreign C u rren cy Transactions denominated in a foreign currency are converted at the exchange rate at the date of transaction. Foreign currency receivables and payables (if any) are translated at the exchange rates current as at balance date. Associated currency gains and losses are brought to account in the Operating Statement. 1.18 C om parative Figures Where necessary, comparative figures have been adjusted to conform with changes in presentation in these financial statements. 1.19 R ounding Amounts are rounded to the nearest $ 1,000 except in relation to: • remuneration of council members; and • remuneration of auditors. 2. R E P O R T I N G BY S E G M E N T S A N D O U T C O M E S The Museum operates in a single industry and geographic segment, being provision of government programs in Australia.

Temporarily surplus funds, mainly Deposits are recognised at their nominal from monthly drawdowns of amounts. Interest is credited to revenue appropriation, are placed on deposit at as it accrues. call with the ANZ and Colonial State Banks.

12 A/ 12B
Trade creditors are recognised at their nominal amounts, being the amounts at which the liabilities will be settled. Liabilities are recognised to the extent that the goods or services have been received (and irrespective of having been invoiced). The Museum recognises a liability on signing of a grant agreement. The amount of the liability is for all payments under the agreement which are no longer at the Museum’s discretion. These payments would be subject to future appropriation by the Parliament. Any payments stated to be at the Museum’s discretion are not recognised as liabilities and are expensed only when paid.
The bills are funds with the ANZ Bank and Commonwealth Bank, in 30 - 40 day accounts, and earn interest at the prevailing rate. Credit terms are net 30 days (1998/99: 30 days). Any write-offs require delegated approval.
Bills are issued at a discount reflecting market yields. They have an average maturity of 30 days and an effective interest rate of 6.9% . The bills will be fully repaid in July 2010. Service revenue is recognised as it is earned, at the date the service is provided. Settlement is usually made net 30 days.
The Museum approves grants for maximum periods of up to one year.

Financial Liabilities The net value of trade creditors are approximated by their carrying amounts. The net fair value of the bills of exchange which will be rolled over after 30 days maturity periods for up to 12 years to finance the long-term loan, are based on discounted cash flows using current interest rates for liabilities with similar risk profiles.
d) C redit Risk Exposures The Museumâ€™s maximum exposures to credit risk at reporting date in relation to each class of recognised financial assets is the carrying amount of those assets as indicated in the Statement of Assets and Liabilities.
