Cash position of Principal Agencies as at 30/06/2018

Tracy Huang made this Freedom of Information request to Department of Finance

The request was successful.

From: Tracy Huang

Delivered

Dear Department of Finance,

I am trying to extrapolate the Cash at Bank position for each Federal Agency as at 30/06/2018. So far I have only been able to retrieve that information from the annual report by each agency one by agency.

I'm wondering if you have a consolidated report that shows the total cash position of the Australian Government, as well as that for each Federal Agency? If that data is too large, then can I just have this information for the 190 Principal Agencies?

Many thanks for your help.

Yours faithfully,

Tracy Huang
