Western Australian Museum Annual Report 2012–13 Our Mission We will inspire people to explore and share their identity, culture, environment and sense of place, and to experience and contribute to the diversity and creativity of our world. Our Vision To be an excellent and vibrant museum service valued and used by all Western Australians and admired and visited by the world. Statement of Compliance For The Year Ended 30 June 2013 Hon. John Day, MLA Minister for Culture and the Arts In accordance with section 63 of the Financial Management Act 2006, we hereby submit for your information and presentation to Parliament, the Annual Report of the Western Australian Museum for the financial year ended 30 June 2013. The Annual Report has been prepared in accordance with the provisions of the Financial Management Act 2006. Signed: Emeritus Professor Alan Robson Chair, Western Australian Museum Board of Trustees Chairman of Accountable Authority 11 September 2013 Signed: Mr Steve Scudamore Member, Western Australian Museum Board of Trustees Member of Accountable Authority 11 September 2013 Message from the Chair I am delighted to introduce the Western Australian Museum's Annual Report for 2012–13 in what has been an outstanding year for this historic institution. After years of speculation, the Museum has finally embarked upon its transformational journey to create a new Museum and I applaud all those who have worked tirelessly to achieve this result. I also commend the Western Australian Government for its commitment to a new Western Australian Museum, one that will be at the heart of its community – a place both for, and of, the people. I am now in my second year as Chair of the Board of Trustees and continue to be impressed by the plethora of ground-breaking research and collections activity, the range of vibrant public programs and the meaningful community engagement the Museum undertakes. As our growing list of awards recipients shows, many of our staff are leaders in their respective fields. Through them we deliver true public value, providing an authentic and authoritative voice that inspires people to explore and share their identity, culture, environment and sense of place, and experience and contribute to the diversity and creativity of our world. I am especially thrilled with the partnerships the Museum continues to forge in the wake of the unique relationship it has built with the British Museum, and the value that adds to all its operations. It has been a year of high achievement in an increasingly pressured budget environment. The Museum has been relentless in its attempt to manage its business effectively. As our journey towards a new Museum gathers pace, it is important to acknowledge the contributions of the Museum's sponsors, partners and benefactors, now and into the future. The Government may be providing the infrastructure, but it is the continued financial support of the public and private sectors that will be vital to the Museum realising its ambitions. I thank my Board colleagues and our staff for their unstinting belief in the Museum, its value now and into the future, and their ability to see the enormous potential of what can be achieved. I thank the Chief Executive Officer, Mr Alec Coles, for his outstanding leadership of the Museum. And I would like to take this opportunity on behalf of all of us at the Western Australian Museum to thank the Minister for Culture and the Arts, the Hon John Day MLA, for his unstinting advocacy, enthusiasm and support for what we do now, and what we aspire to achieve. Signed: Emeritus Professor Alan Robson Chair Message from the CEO This year, the Western Australian Museum took its first significant steps towards creating a world class Museum for WA and one to be admired the world over. Following the Western Australian Government's formal commitment to redeveloping the Museum in the Perth Cultural Centre, funds were allocated in the Forward Estimates to begin the journey. In 2012–13 the Business Case for the New Museum Project was endorsed and the Museum officially moved into the Project Definition Phase. We now have architectural advisors and museum planners on board to assist in the critical development phase that will see the scope of the new Western Australian Museum defined. As part of the project, long-overdue refurbishments to our Welshpool Collections and Research Centre are planned. The CRC project will consume just under $18 million of the New Museum Project budget, resulting in a new wet store and laboratories and improved storage facilities which will enhance our collections management capability and ensure the safety and security of our collections for generations to come. This is literally an extraordinary time in the life of the Western Australian Museum. Our important work in research and education, our pledge to contribute significantly to the health and wellbeing of all Western Australians, and our commitment to being inclusive and affirming can only be enhanced as we focus our efforts on delivering a world-class Museum service that reflects our aspirations, demonstrates our confidence and engages our people. Our new Western Australian Museum will be a place of and for our people, expressing our identity, celebrating our culture and exploring our world. I sincerely thank the Western Australian Museum Trustees for their commitment to our journey and in particular our Chair, Emeritus Professor Alan Robson AO, for his unwavering support. I would also like to thank our dedicated staff and volunteers, our friends and supporters individual and corporate, public and private. Together, we have embarked upon an incredible journey, and will take this once in a lifetime opportunity to create a cultural legacy for all Western Australians. Signed: Chief Executive Officer, Mr Alec Coles Destination Statement The Western Australian Museum is dedicated to community value which means we will: Care for Western Australia's collections representing the natural environment, the history, the stories and traditions of its people. Contribute to the conservation of environments, landscapes, heritage, sites and traditions. Promote and support tourism in and to Western Australia. Be environmentally, socially and economically sustainable. Ensure Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people are central to ownership, governance and development and express themselves through collections, stories and ideas. Contribute to community health and wellbeing through the involvement of users in the management of collections and the development of public programs. Be a resource to support the development of education and learning opportunities by and for the community. Help all the people of Western Australia express and explore their diversity, pride, identity and sense of place. Support and enforce the heritage legislation for which we are responsible. Promote academic research in the areas represented by our collections and activities. Agency Overview Strategic Direction Creating a New Museum for Western Australia is the organisation's top priority. In December 2012 the Business Case for the New Museum was approved and following the State election in March 2013, the Museum launched into Project Definition Phase and began the work to recruit the teams necessary to develop a New Museum for Western Australia – one that will be at the heart of its community, a place both for and of our people. In developing the New Museum, we want people to explore and share their culture; we want to promote tolerance and understanding; and we wish to provoke a sense of curiosity about our State – its unique history, amazing wildlife, ancient landscapes, abundant oceans and incredible people. Western Australians have already begun contributing to the development of their New Museum, having been asked to share their thoughts on what it means to be Western Australian during the 2013 WA Day celebrations. The Museum received more than 2,000 commentaries which will be used to help shape the content of what will be one of the State's most exciting and important infrastructure developments, the once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to create a New Museum. The Museum is more than 120 years old so this is an opportunity that occurs only every few generations – the scale of the proposed development is rare even by international standards. In asking people what they thought about WA, almost all spoke of their love of, loyalty to and affection for our State. The pioneering spirit of the West, the fact that everyone feels very lucky to live in this great state with its wonderful outdoor lifestyle. I also love that it is tolerant and multi-cultural. So there is an optimism and sense of well-being among the people who live here. Shane Kelly I feel very privileged to live in a place that is safe and carefree, with a beautiful capital city, spectacular countryside, terrific weather and most of all, wonderful people from many varied backgrounds and cultures. Life in WA is hard to beat! Mery Babic It is for these people that we are creating a Museum that matches and expresses their pride in their State. Western Australia's New Museum will provide a new home for the multitude of stories from a wide range of people across our extraordinary State, a new base from which to explore our natural and cultural heritage, a new way of understanding Western Australia, its place in the world, and its status as economic powerhouse, tourist destination and new locus for global excellence in education and research. At the heart of the creation process is a program of community engagement which will provide the foundation for the State Government's significant funding commitment of $428.3 million. www.museum.wa.gov.au/new-museum Our Values We are dedicated to community value which means we will be: Accountable Inspirational, Inclusive and Accessible Enterprising and Excellent Sustainable We recognise Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Peoples as the first peoples of Australia www.museum.wa.gov.au/about/background-mission Highlights of 2012–13 Organisational Priorities The Museum's five organisational priorities underpin the delivery of its strategic direction and have been used to identify highlights for the past year. Community Value The Museum exists for the benefit of all the people of Western Australia and is accountable to them. In December, the Business Case for the redevelopment of the Western Australian Museum was approved and, following the confirmation of Government policy priorities and commitment to the project in March, the Project Definition Phase for the New Museum began. Project funding includes much needed work on a new state-of-the-art wet store and laboratories at the Collections and Research Centre in Welshpool. The Museum hosted two major international exhibitions in the 2012–13 financial year. Unveiled: 200 years of Wedding Glamour was presented in partnership with the Victoria and Albert Museum in London; and Secrets of the Afterlife: Magic, Mummies and Immortality in Ancient Egypt, came to WA as a result of the WA Museum's special relationship with the British Museum. Financial Sustainability The Western Australian Museum will strive to be financially sustainable. Securing the first tranche of Government funding for the New Museum Project has allowed the Project Definition Plan phase for the Perth site to commence and completion of the Project Definition Plan for the works at Welshpool. Despite sequential reductions in Government funding throughout the year, the Museum continues to focus on providing the highest quality services to its audiences and other stakeholders. Work to identify opportunities to streamline restricted account management, to improve transparency and ensure funds are quarantined for the purposes required has been reviewed and completed. Aboriginal And Torres Strait Islander Partnerships The Museum will increase its efforts to ensure Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples are central to ownership, governance and program development. In December, the Museum repatriated the Aboriginal Ancestral Remains of 21 individuals to Bunbury for reburial in country. The Museum has been returning Ancestral Remains to WA Aboriginal communities as part of the Return of Indigenous Cultural Property program for more than a decade. The Museum works in consultation with its Aboriginal Advisory Committee and the Department of Aboriginal Affairs (formerly the Department of Indigenous Affairs) to repatriate remains to their communities. In addition to the repatriation of Aboriginal Ancestral Remains and cultural material, the Museum returned two sets of Maori Ancestral Remains to the New Zealand national museum, Te Papa Tongarewa, in October 2012. The first collaboration between the WA Museum and Yirra Yaakin Theatre Company took place during the April school holidays. Performances of Kaarla Kaatijin were well received by families and young children. Services Delivered WA-wide The Museum will develop partnerships with regional communities, businesses and industries to share resources, knowledge and expertise. The Museum has been asked to coordinate the interpretive element of the new ANZAC Interpretation Centre to be built in Albany, and opened in time for the 100th anniversary of the departure of the first ANZAC convoys, on November 1, 2014. This will be a significant event in Australia's Centenary of Service commemorations and the Museum is proud to be making such an important contribution. All three of the Museum's regional sites continue to strengthen their community partnerships, allowing them to excel in their roles as regional and community hubs. Geraldton was awarded two Museums and Galleries National Awards in the same financial year, Kalgoorlie-Boulder received a regional tourism award, and Albany hosted its seventh annual Perth International Arts Festival program. Empowerment The Museum expects its staff to be creative and innovative and encourages initiative, leadership and new ideas from all parts of the organisation. An excellent example of this is the delivery of Visual Impairment Awareness Training, in March 2013. Volunteer Coordinator at the WA Museum – Perth, Les Barradeen saw an opportunity to enhance the experience of visually impaired visitors by giving staff a greater understanding of the challenges they face when attending exhibitions. With the aim of ensuring the interpretive delivery within the Museum actually enhanced a sight impaired person's visit, Les arranged for the delivery of training to staff and volunteers from across the Museum's sites by Pam Barrass, a member of the Department for Culture and the Arts' Disability Services Planning Committee and advocate for people who are blind or have low vision. using mainly touch and sound to interpret displays, it was highly successful – putting staff in the shoes of the visually impaired visitor and encouraging them to find creative ways of improving the Museum experience for everyone. Awards The WA Museum – Geraldton won two successive national excellence awards for community-based projects that reflect on memories and the physical environment during 2012 and 2013. The Museums and Galleries National Awards, or MAGNAs, began in 2011 and recognise excellent work nationally in the categories of exhibition, public programs and sustainability projects. In 2012, Recollecting Sydney: A Call to Mind was designed to assist and encourage relatives of the men lost on HMAS Sydney (II) in 1941 to share and document their memories. People were invited to bring photographs, letters and any other materials to the Museum, where an artist helped to create a shared memory and a poignant story from the people who recall the men of Sydney as husbands, fathers, brothers, uncles, cousins or friends. This is a well thought out, innovative concept that engages the local and national community in the conservation of memory of a particular event of national significance. The project also helps to inform and enrich future commemoration of the event. Judges' Comments – www.museumsaustralia.org.au/site/magna2012_winners.php In 2013, Seeing Change: A photographic story from Abrolhos fishers provided a unique insight into a fishing community's experience of social and environmental change over a decade. It used a technique called 'photovoice' to capture the community's changing landscape and provide visual commentary, which was then displayed alongside scientific data of environmental change. The program was a hugely successful collaboration between the Museum, the Western Australian Marine Science Institution, Curtin University, WA Department of Fisheries, Coastwest, ABC Open, the Northern Agricultural Catchment Council and the Abrolhos fishing community. This exhibition covers material from social and natural history and contemporary topical issues. The exhibition is graphically strong and incorporates a great selection of images. The public outreach programs are comprehensive as is the involvement of the wider community. Judges' Comments – www.museumsaustralia.org.au/site/magna2013_winners.php On 15 June, the Western Australian Museum – Kalgoorlie-Boulder took out Australia's Gold Outback Tourism Award at the Kalgoorlie-Boulder Chamber of Commerce and Industry Business Awards. The Museum is extremely proud to be recognised in this category and welcomes everyone to the Museum to see our award-winning exhibitions and displays. www.museum.wa.gov.au/about/latest-news/western-australian-museumkalgoorl... A WA Museum partnership with Woodside Energy and the Society for Underwater Technology was awarded Good Practice Recognition at the 2012 Australian Business Arts Foundation (AbaF) awards for developing and presenting the Immerse exhibition. The exhibition offered an insight into the amazing technology, much of it designed and built in WA, that allows us to explore and utilise the depths of our oceans and the resources that lie beneath. www.museum.wa.gov.au/immerse In late 2012 the Museum's Terrestrial Zoology and Web teams, in collaboration with BHP Billiton and Benelongia, won the Environment Excellence award at the 2012 BHP Billiton Health Safety Environment and Community Awards, for developing WAMinals – a web application used to identify new and undescribed Short Range Endemic (SRE) species. The award triggered a $20,000 donation from BHP Billiton to the Western Australian Museum Foundation to support the continued development of WAMinals. The project's development was supported by BHP Billiton and Rio Tinto and was released for use in January 2013. www.museum.wa.gov.au/catalogues/waminals/about-waminals The Museum's Manager for Online Services and Web Development Morgan Strong was awarded Information Technology Practitioner of the year at the WA Institute of Public Administration Australia Achievement Awards in June. This very significant award recognises the prodigious amount of high-calibre work undertaken by Morgan in his role and its importance to the organisation. www.wa.ipaa.org.au/2013-Achievement-Award-Winners.aspx Honours Professor Geoffrey Bolton – unstinting supporter of the WA Museum and until recently, Museum Trustee and Chair of our Maritime Archaeology Committee – was honoured at the 2013 WA Heritage Awards, receiving a special commendation for his Outstanding Voluntary Contribution to Heritage by an Individual, particularly for his work with the Museum and ANCODS (Australian and Netherlands Committee for Old Dutch Shipwrecks). Chair of the WA Museum Board of Trustees, Emeritus Professor Alan Robson, was recognised in the 2013 Queen's Birthday Honours list. Emeritus Professor Robson, already a Member (AM) in the General Division of the Order of Australia, was made an Officer (AO) in the General Division for distinguished service to tertiary education through governance and administrative roles, to the advancement of scientific and medical research, and to the community. WA Museum volunteer David Briegel received an Order of Australia Medal in the 2013 Australia Day Honours list for service to the community through charitable and historical organisations. David has made a significant volunteer contribution to a range of very worthwhile causes, including Princess Margaret Hospital. He has been a volunteer with the Museum's History Department for two days a week since 2004.

Volunteers Of The Western Australian Museum Volunteers play an important role at the Western Australian Museum. Their ability to enhance the Museum's programs, events and operations is greatly valued. Through the engagement of volunteers, the Museum is able to extend its reach into the community, facilitating the two-way transfer of skills, knowledge and information. In the reporting year, the Museum benefited from the commitment of 364 dedicated volunteers who provided vital assistance in many areas of its operations at both regional and metropolitan sites. Volunteers dedicated an estimated 22,116 hours service to the Museum, valued at $691,695. In response to the Auditor General's Report No. 1 – February 2012 – Working Together: Management of Partnerships with Volunteers, the Museum has finalised a suite of documents that now underpin its volunteer program. Friends Of The Western Australian Museum The Friends of the Western Australian Museum are an integral part of the Museum's support structure, promoting and encouraging the Museum's development journey for nearly 20 years. The Museum is grateful for the ongoing support it receives from all Friends members, particularly as the planning and creation of a New Museum for Western Australia gathers pace. The Friends membership at 30 June 2013 was 190. Western Australian Museum Foundation The profile and activities of the Museum are enhanced by acquisitions, exhibitions and scientific research made possible, in part, by the generosity of sponsors and benefactors. The Foundation seeks to build this giving tradition by encouraging and recognising donations and corporate sponsorships and partnerships, gifts of objects, bequests and endowments. Highlights of the past year include: Long-time advocate of the Museum and Chief Scientist of WA, Professor Lyn Beazley, generously directed $50,000 of funding from her receipt of the 2012 Governor's Giving Award to develop a scholarship program for young people to work at the Museum. Singapore Airlines (SIA) and SIA Cargo generously supported both the Unveiled and Secrets of the Afterlife major exhibitions from the UK. Woodside supported the Immerse touring exhibition as Principal Partner which was displayed at the 2012 Royal Agricultural Show. This was highly successful with more than 56,300 visitors in eight days – an average of 7,000 visitors a day, taking in one in seven visitors to the Show. When these figures are added to the Karratha and WA Museum – Perth attendances, Immerse received some 104,000 visitors making it the second most visited exhibition after A Day in Pompeii. A generous donation from the McClements Foundation supported the acquisition of an Aurelio Costerella gown, and purchase of state-of-the-art showcases for the Unveiled: 200 years of Wedding Glamour exhibition, which were repurposed for Secrets of the Afterlife and will continue to be used into the future. Museum Fellow Dr Harry Butler AO continued his longstanding support of Museum fieldwork through the Maggie Butler Bequest Fund for projects, to be completed in 2013–14.

LG1 Ensure Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander (ATSI) peoples are central to ownership, governance and development of our collections and programs. Outcomes: To better understand our audiences the Museum has quantified visitor demographics and found our popularity with Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples is remarkably strong with seven per cent of all visitors to the Museum identifying as Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people, with the State's Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander population of 2.5 per cent. Achievements: A three-year partnership has been developed between Yirra Yaakin Theatre Company and the Western Australian Museum to provide authentic, contemporary Aboriginal content by Aboriginal performers. www.museum.wa.gov.au/about/latest-news/yirra-yaakin-takes-museum-stage The Museum has appointed Senior Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander advisor Ms Sam Cook to work across the organisation but particularly to provide high level advice on Aboriginal matters and to liaise closely with the Museum's Aboriginal Advisory Committee. Development of Aboriginal cultural awareness training pilot 'Immerse'. Designed as a 360 degree engaged space with direct links to local Aboriginal history. An incredible experience, left me buzzing for a few days afterwards. 'IMMERSE' FEEDBACK LG2 Create and share our knowledge with our users. Outcomes: Produced and distributed 57 peer-reviewed research-papers, 14 non-refereed reports, 26 conference papers, eight popular publications and 128 unpublished reports to consultants; one book, 66 book chapters and one in-house journal. undertook 26 collaborative research projects, two involving international partner agencies and institutions. Conducted 45 field trips in WA, 11 interstate and five international field trips. Significantly increased website visitation overall. Based on user feedback, the online services team has improved the usability, functionality and efficiency of the Museum website, optimising it for the organisation's growing mobile market. Website Visitation: 2011–12 2012–13 Visitors increased by nearly 80% 677,343 1,218,230 Page views increased by nearly 69% 13,022,579 21,958,404 Video views increased by 87% 256,075 479,674 Achievements: Museum staff and associates were again at the forefront of adding to the knowledge and understanding of the State's natural environment with the description of 52 new animal species and one new mineral species. The animal species included: Prethopalpus attenboroughi – a spider not much bigger than a pin head and found only on one island off the Queensland coast, named in honour of the world's foremost naturalist and broadcaster Sir David Attenborough. www.museum.wa.gov.au/about/latest-news/new-speciesnamed-sir-david-attenb... Urodacus butleri – a scorpion discovered on Barrow Island off the State's North-West shelf had to be named after the discoverer's childhood hero, Dr Harry Butler, according to Dr Mark Harvey from the Museum. www.museum.wa.gov.au/about/latest-news/new-scorpioncelebrates-renowned-c... A new bee – the male of the 'Shaggy Spined Bee' described as looking like it was wearing straw-covered long baggy trousers, discoverered by WA Museum research associate Dr Terry Houston. This new species is yet to be scientifically named. www.museum.wa.gov.au/about/latest-news/new-bee-createsbuzz-ravensthorpe Visiting researchers – the WA Museum attracted extended visits by researchers, including from: the Northern Territory – Emeritus Professor Phil Alderslade studied the soft corals from the Woodside expeditions; the United States – University of Michigan PhD student Jingchun Li discovered at least three species of commensal clams on irregular urchins in the WA Museum Collection; and Brazil – trapdoor spiders attracted Brazilian PhD student Laura Miglio from the Laboratorio de Aracnologia, Museu Paraense Emilio Goeldi, Belem as part of her revision of Actinopodidae in Brazil. LG3 Understand and respond to our audiences and communities Outcomes: As part of the Museum's continuing efforts to better serve its users, audience development specialists Morris Hargreaves McIntyre (MHM) were contracted to provide specialist market information. Their report covered visitation from October 2012 to June 2013. The MHM Visitor 360° report found the Museum's diverse audiences were dominated by Learning Families who wanted an educational visit (32 per cent), that there were more female visitors than male (56 per cent compared to 44 per cent) and that 15 per cent of visits were made by people over the age of 65. Understanding visitor diversity will enable the Museum to better respond to the full range of visitor expectations. Achievements: For the first time, formative through to post exhibition research was conducted with the Unveiled: 200 years of Wedding Glamour exhibition. The research showed 100 per cent of visitors were aware of the exhibition before arriving, suggesting the marketing and media campaign for Unveiled was highly effective. LG4 Develop a highly skilled, motivated and flexible workforce Outcomes: Areas of focus for training over the past year included cultural awareness training (see LG1 page 29), ethical decision making, occupational health and safety, disability access and inclusion, and leadership development. This year, staff attended a total of 936 training sessions. This represents 3,068 hours of training (or 713 staff training days) across a range of learning areas. The Museum's total cash expenditure on staff training for the year was $88,670. This represents a 107 per cent increase in the Museum's investment in developing its workforce. Not all training is delivered at a cash cost and the total commitment, when staff time is added to this, is significantly greater. 230 staff completed Accountability and Ethical Decision Making training with an average pass mark of 94.25 per cent, well above the minimum pass mark of 80 per cent. Achievements For the first time in its 10 year history, two senior staff travelled to Sydney to participate in the Museums Leadership Program organised by Museums Australia and the Gordon Darling Foundation. LG5 Develop effective volunteer culture Outcomes: 364 volunteers undertook various tasks including assisting visitors, and supporting the Museum's curatorial and conservation staff with research, cataloguing and fieldwork presentation. Achievements: A suite of information supporting volunteer programs has been developed following the Auditor General's Audit of Volunteer Partnerships across Government. The Museum's analysis for 2012–13, highlighted the significant and valuable contribution of its volunteer partnerships. Overall, volunteers donated a generous 22,116 hours of their time, the cash value of this donation is estimated at $691,695. 55 volunteers donated their time to assist visitors to the Unveiled: 200 years of Wedding Glamour exhibition. So far, 110 volunteers have donated their time to the Secrets of the Afterlife exhibition. The Maritime History Research Database has been compiled largely through the efforts of volunteers documenting some 30,000 individual ship histories. Customer C Link to Government Goals Goal 1 – State building – major projects Goal 3 – Results-based service delivery Goal 4 – Stronger focus on the regions www.publicsector.wa.gov.au/node/67 The Western Australian Museum exists to deliver public value to, and for the benefit of, the community.

Work underway on a new and fully integrated Collection Management Information System (CMIS) will lead to greater accessibility and more effective management of the more than 4.5 million objects in the State's Collection, and in turn, better content development for the New Museum. Achievements: Significant items added to the collection this year include: 153 artefacts from the Rolly Tasker Australian Sailing Museum collection, currently on loan and on display at the Western Australian Maritime Museum, are in process of being formally gifted to the Museum. A significant collection of material from one of the discoverers of the Batavia wreck, the late Max Cramer, has been donated to the WA Museum. From the Unveiled: 200 years of Wedding Glamour exhibition, a dress from world renowned, WA-based fashion designer Aurelio Costarella has become a permanent part of the Museum's collection. P3 Ensure effective governance and management. Outcomes: The project management framework successfully used for the Unveiled and Secrets of the Afterlife exhibitions has delivered a new era of effective management practices for the Museum. Achievements: An induction manual for new members of the Board of Trustees has been finalised and is now in use. A new Governance Framework has been finalised and implemented. P4 Contribute to the conservation of environment, landscapes, heritage sites and traditions. Outcomes: The Museum continues to be regarded as an authority on issues of marine and terrestrial biodiversity and issues of cultural significance, responding to more than 1,385 requests for advice from government and the private sector. Achievements: The Museum manages eight Crown land reserves throughout Western Australia, in consultation with traditional owners. P5 Ensure the highest standards of health and safety management and practice. Outcomes: With approximately 252 employees (at 30 June 2013) and 879,145 visitors across all of its sites, the Museum recorded a total of 31 injuries and health or safety related incidences for the year. Of the 31 incidents, five involved staff or volunteers (three of which resulted in workers compensation claims), one contractor and 25 were either visitors or other people attending the Museum's sites. These figures will be used to set targets for improved performance in coming years. Achievements: An Occupational Health and Safety (OHS) audit for all metropolitan sites was completed and work begun on development of an OHS plan in consultation with internal stakeholders. The Museum has increased the number of OHS representatives within its workforce from 13 to 14. Significant Issues Impacting The Agency Issues, Trends And Initiatives The following current issues have been identified as those that will be at the forefront of the Museum's consideration in the coming year. The Museum's Strategic Plan 2011–14 identifies five key priorities. Significant issues and major initiatives are grouped within these five areas: 1 Delivering community value. New Museum Project Community engagement will be a key feature of the development and planning work for the New Museum project in 2013–14. The Project Definition Phase will continue throughout 2013–14 and involves refining the project scope, confirming the budget and detailing the delivery schedule. Central to this is the creation of briefing materials, including a Functional Brief, to be used by the team working on the next phase – the Design phase. The Museum will complete most of the recruitment required to bring on board the teams that will assist in the content development for the New Museum. The design work for the Welshpool Collections and Research Centre will be finalised during 2013–14. 2 Sustainable management. The Museum will continue to exercise financial rigor in all its operations while delivering the best service possible. Successive and significant reductions in Government funding will inevitably impact on services and ultimately on KPI results. The Museum will work with Government to manage the proposed Machinery of Government changes that will provide greater autonomy, particularly in the areas of budgets and staff. The Museum's Strategic Plan will be reviewed and rolled forward. 3 Working WA-wide. The Museum has been given the task of content development for the new ANZAC Interpretation Centre at Albany, to be opened on November 1, 2014 in time for the 100th anniversary of the departure of the first ANZAC convoys. The Museum is working with the Returned and Services League to assist regional communities across WA and the Cocos and Keeling Islands to develop exhibitions to mark the Centenary of Service, beginning next year. The Museum operates three museums in Kalgoorlie-Boulder, Geraldton and Albany which increasingly act as 'hubs', providing advice and support for their regions. Negotiations are underway to develop partnerships with non-WA Museums to act as conduits for WAM's expertise and services in those regions where there is no WA Museum site. Masterplanning for sites at Geraldton and Albany will be a priority in 2013-14. 4 Recognising Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander People as Australia's first peoples. Planning and consultation for the Museum's Reconciliation Action Plan is underway, with a view to finalising and launching within the next 12 months. This will be the first Reconciliation Action Plan for the Museum and its creation has unanimous support from the WA Museum's Aboriginal Advisory Committee. The Museum will continue to increase training and employment opportunities for Indigenous people. 5 Empowering staff and volunteers. Following Budget constraints that prevented the planned organisational restructure, there will be a need to prepare the Museum for the organisational renewal that will necessarily come from refocusing our work to prioritise the development of a New Museum for Western Australia. Funding constraints and rapid progress on the New Museum project mean that the previous proposed restructure will need to be revisited to take account of current parameters. The Museum will roll out the new documentation prepared to support its volunteer operations. Regular communication with staff and volunteers will be sustained and enhanced where possible. All staff and volunteers will be encouraged to become brand ambassadors for the Museum in this new phase of operation.

Notes To The Financial Statements For The Year Ended 30 June 2013 1. AUSTRALIAN ACCOUNTING STANDARDS General The Western Australian Museum's financial statements for the year ended 30 June 2013 have been prepared in accordance with Australian Accounting Standards. The term 'Australian Accounting Standards' includes Standards and Interpretations issued by the Australian Accounting Standards Board (AASB). The Western Australian Museum has adopted any applicable new and revised Australian Accounting Standards from their operative dates. Early adoption of standards The Western Australian Museum cannot early adopt an Australian Accounting Standard unless specifically permitted by TI 1101 Application of Australian Accounting Standards and Other Pronouncements. No Australian Accounting Standards that have been issued or amended (but not operative) have been early adopted by the Western Australian Museum for the annual reporting period ended 30 June 2013. 2. SUMMARY OF SIGNIFICANT ACCOUNTING POLICIES a) General statement The Western Australian Museum is a not-for-profit reporting entity that prepares general purpose financial statements in accordance with Australian Accounting Standards, the Framework, Statements of Accounting Concepts and other authoritative pronouncements of the AASB as applied by the Treasurer's Instructions. Several of these are modified by the Treasurer's Instructions to vary application, disclosure, format and wording. The Financial Management Act and the Treasurer's Instructions are legislative provisions that govern the preparation of financial statements and take precedence over Australian Accounting Standards, the Framework, Statements of Accounting Concepts and other authoritative pronouncements of the AASB. Where modification is required and has had a material or significant financial effect upon the reported results, details of that modification and the resulting financial effect are disclosed in the notes to the financial statements. b) Basis of preparation The financial statements have been prepared on the accrual basis of accounting using the historical cost convention, except for land, buildings and Museum collections which have been measured at fair value. The accounting policies adopted in the preparation of the financial statements have been consistently applied throughout all periods presented unless otherwise stated. The financial statements are presented in Australian dollars and all values are rounded to the nearest thousand dollars ($'000). Note 4 'Judgements made by management in applying accounting policies' discloses judgements that have been made in the process of applying the Western Australian Museum's accounting policies resulting in the most significant effect on amounts recognised in the financial statements. c) Reporting entity The reporting entity is The Western Australian Museum which is a body corporate with perpetual succession and an agency of the State of Western Australia. d) Contributed equity AASB Interpretation 1038 Contributions by Owners Made to Wholly-Owned Public Sector Entities requires transfers in the nature of equity contributions, other than as a result of a restructure of administrative arrangements, to be designated by the Government (the owner) as contributions by owners (at the time of, or prior to transfer) before such transfers can be recognised as equity contributions. Capital appropriations have been designated as contributions by owners by TI 955 Contributions by Owners made to Wholly-Owned Public Sector Entities and have been credited directly to Contributed Equity. The transfer of net assets to/from other agencies, other than as a result of a restructure of administrative arrangements, are designated as contributions by owners where the transfers are non-discretionary and nonreciprocal. e) Income Revenue recognition Revenue is recognised and measured at the fair value of consideration received or receivable. Revenue is recognised for the major business activities as follows: Sale of goods Revenue is recognised from the sale of goods and disposal of other assets when the significant risks and rewards of ownership transfer to the purchaser and can be measured reliably. Provision of services Revenue is recognised to the stage of completion of the transaction. Interest Revenue is recognised as the interest accrues. Service appropriations Service appropriations are recognised as revenues at fair value in the period in which the Western Australian Museum gains control of the appropriated funds. The Western Australian Museum gains control of appropriated funds at the time those funds are deposited to the bank account or credited to the 'Amounts receivable for services' (holding account) held at Treasury. Grants, donations, gifts and other non-reciprocal contributions Revenue is recognised at fair value when the Western Australian Museum obtains control over the assets comprising the contributions, usually when cash is received. Other non-reciprocal contributions that are not contributions by owners are recognised at their fair value. Contributions of services are only recognised when a fair value can be reliably determined and the services would be purchased if not donated. Gains Realised and unrealised gains are usually recognised on a net basis. These include gains arising on the disposal of non-current assets and some revaluations of non-current assets. f) Property, plant and equipment Capitalisation/expensing of assets Items of property, plant and equipment costing $5,000 or more are recognised as assets and the cost of utilising assets is expensed (depreciated) over their useful lives. Items of property, plant and equipment costing less than $5,000 are immediately expensed direct to the Statement of Comprehensive Income (other than where they form part of a group of similar items which are significant in total). Initial recognition and measurement Property, plant and equipment are initially recognised at cost. For items of property, plant and equipment acquired at no cost or for nominal cost, the cost is the fair value at the date of acquisition. Subsequent measurement Subsequent to initial recognition as an asset, the revaluation model is used for the measurement of land and buildings and historical cost for all other property, plant and equipment. Land and buildings are carried at fair value less accumulated depreciation (buildings only) and accumulated impairment losses. All other items of property, plant and equipment are stated at historical cost less accumulated depreciation and accumulated impairment losses. Where market-based evidence is available, the fair value of land and buildings is determined on the basis of current market buying values determined by reference to recent market transactions. When buildings are revalued by reference to recent market transactions, the accumulated depreciation is eliminated against the gross carrying amount of the asset and the net amount restated to the revalued amount. In the absence of market-based evidence, fair value of land and buildings is determined on the basis of existing use. This normally applies where buildings are specialised or where land use is restricted. Fair value for existing use assets is determined by reference to the cost of replacing the remaining future economic benefits embodied in the asset, ie. the depreciated replacement cost. Where the fair value of buildings is determined on the depreciated replacement cost basis, the gross carrying amount and the accumulated depreciation are restated proportionately. Land and buildings are independently valued annually by the Western Australian Land Information Authority (Valuation Services) and recognised annually to ensure that the carrying amount does not differ materially from the end of the reporting period. The most significant assumptions in estimating fair value are made in assessing whether to apply the existing use basis to assets and in determining estimated useful life. Professional judgement by the valuer is required where the evidence does not provide a clear distinction between market type assets and existing use assets. Derecognition upon disposal or derecognition of an item of property, plant and equipment or Museum collection, any revaluation surplus relating to that asset is retained in the asset revaluation surplus. Asset revaluation surplus The asset revaluation surplus is used to record increments and decrements on the revaluation of non-current assets as described in Note 22 'Property, plant and equipment' and Note 23 'Museum collections'. Depreciation All non-current assets having a limited useful life are systematically depreciated over their estimated useful lives in a manner that reflects the consumption of their future economic benefits. Depreciation is calculated using the straight line method, using rates which are reviewed annually. Estimated useful lives for each class of depreciable asset are: Buildings and monuments 40 years Plant, equipment and vehicles 5 to 20 years Office equipment 4 to 10 years Leasehold improvements Balance of the current terms of lease Land is not depreciated. g) Museum collections Capitalisation/expensing of assets No capitalisation threshold is applied to Museum collection items. These items are considered to form part of a collection and are disclosed separately in the Statement of Financial Position. Initial recognition and measurement Collection items may be acquired through collection, purchase or donation. Acquisitions of collection items are recorded at cost when purchased and at fair value when donated. Subsequent measurement The collections of the Western Australian Museum are revalued every five years (2011: three years). The revaluation of the collections is conducted by independent valuers using a combination of both market values, where applicable, and recollection costs. Additional detail is provided at Note 5 'Voluntary change in accounting policy'. Depreciation Collection items controlled by the Western Australian Museum are classified as heritage assets. They are anticipated to have very long and indeterminate useful lives. Their service potential has not, in any material sense, been consumed during the reporting period. As such, no amount for depreciation has been recognised in respect of these assets. h) Intangible assets Capitalisation/expensing of assets Acquisitions of intangible assets costing $5,000 or more and internally generated intangible assets costing $50,000 or more are capitalised. The cost of utilising the assets is expensed (amortised) over their useful life. Costs incurred below these thresholds are immediately expensed directly to the Statement of Comprehensive Income. Intangible assets are initially recognised at cost. For assets acquired at no cost or for nominal cost, the cost is their fair value at the date of acquisition. The cost model is applied for subsequent measurement requiring the asset to be carried at cost less any accumulated amortisation and accumulated impairment losses. Amortisation for intangible assets with finite useful lives is calculated for the period of the expected benefit (estimated useful life which is reviewed annually) on the straight line basis. All intangible assets controlled by the Western Australian Museum have a finite useful life and zero residual value. The expected useful lives for each class of intangible asset are: Software(a) 3 to 10 years (a) Software that is not integral to the operation of any related hardware. Computer software Software that is an integral part of the related hardware is treated as property, plant and equipment. Software that is not an integral part of the related hardware is recognised as an intangible asset. Software costing less than $5,000 is expensed in the year of acquisition. Website costs Website costs are charged as expenses when they are incurred unless they relate to the acquisition or development of an asset when they may be capitalised and amortised. Generally, costs in relation to feasibility studies during the planning phase of a website, and ongoing costs of maintenance during the operating phase are expensed. Costs incurred in building or enhancing a website, to the extent that they represent probable future economic benefits that can be reliably measured, are capitalised. i) Impairment of Assets Property, plant and equipment and intangible assets are tested for any indication of impairment at the end of each reporting period. Where there is an indication of impairment, the recoverable amount is estimated. Where the recoverable amount is less than the carrying amount, the asset is considered impaired and is written down to the recoverable amount and an impairment loss is recognised. Where an asset measured at cost is written down to recoverable amount, an impairment loss is recognised in profit or loss. Where a previously revalued asset is written down to recoverable amount, the loss is recognised as a revaluation decrement in other comprehensive income. As the Western Australian Museum is a not-for-profit entity, unless an asset has been identified as a surplus asset, the recoverable amount is the higher of an asset's fair value less costs to sell and depreciated replacement cost. The risk of impairment is generally limited to circumstances where an asset's depreciation is materially understated, where the replacement cost is falling or where there is a significant change in useful life. Each relevant class of assets is reviewed annually to verify that the accumulated depreciation/amortisation reflects the level of consumption or expiration of the asset's future economic benefits and to evaluate any impairment risk from falling replacement costs. Intangible assets with an indefinite useful life and intangible assets not yet available for use are tested for impairment at the end of each reporting period irrespective of whether there is any indication of impairment. The recoverable amount of assets identified as surplus assets is the higher of fair value less costs to sell and the present value of future cash flows expected to be derived from the asset. Surplus assets carried at fair value have no risk of material impairment where fair value is determined by reference to market-based evidence. Where fair value is determined by reference to depreciated replacement cost, surplus assets are at risk of impairment and the recoverable amount is measured. Surplus assets at cost are tested for indications of impairments at the end of each reporting period. j) Leases The Western Australian Museum holds operating leases for vehicles. Operating leases are expensed on a straight line basis over the lease term as this represents the pattern of benefits derived from the leased vehicles. k) Financial instruments In addition to cash, the Western Australian Museum has two categories of financial instrument: Loans and receivables; and Financial liabilities measured at amortised cost. Financial instruments have been disaggregated into the following classes: Financial Assets Cash and cash equivalents Restricted cash and cash equivalents Receivables Amounts receivable for services Financial Liabilities Payables Other borrowings Initial recognition and measurement of financial instruments is at fair value which normally equates to the transaction cost or the face value. Subsequent measurement is at amortised cost using the effective interest method. The fair value of short-term receivables and payables is the transaction cost or the face value because there is no interest rate applicable and subsequent measurement is not required as the effect of discounting is not material. l) Cash and cash equivalents For the purpose of the Statement of Cash Flows, cash and cash equivalent (and restricted cash and cash equivalent) assets comprise cash on hand and short-term deposits with original maturities of three months or less that are readily convertible to a known amount of cash and which are subject to insignificant risk of changes in value. m) Accrued salaries Accrued salaries represent the amount due to staff but unpaid at the end of the financial year. Accrued salaries are settled within a fortnight of the financial year end. All staff of the Culture and the Arts portfolio agencies, including the Western Australian Museum, are employees of the Department of Culture and the Arts. Therefore, the Western Australian Museum has no liabilities in relation to employee entitlements and accrued salaries. Accrued salaries are offset against resources received free of charge in the Statement of Comprehensive Income. Refer to Note 3 'Department of Culture and the Arts'. n) Amounts receivable for services (holding account) The Western Australian Museum receives income from the State Government partly in cash and partly as an asset (holding account receivable). The accrued amount appropriated is accessible on the emergence of the cash funding requirement to cover leave entitlements and asset replacement. o) Inventories Inventories are measured at the lower of cost or net realisable value. Costs are assigned by the method most appropriate for each particular class of inventory, with the majority being valued on an average cost basis. p) Receivables Receivables are recognised at original invoice amount less an allowance for any uncollectible amounts (ie. impairment). The collectability of receivables is reviewed on an ongoing basis and any receivables identified as uncollectible are written-off against the allowance account. The allowance for uncollectible amounts (doubtful debts) is raised when there is objective evidence that the Western Australian Museum will not be able to collect the debts. The carrying amount is equivalent to fair value as it is due for settlement within 30 days. q) Payables Payables are recognised when the Western Australian Museum becomes obliged to make future payments as a result of a purchase of assets or services. The carrying amount is equivalent to fair value, as settlement is generally within 30 days. r) Borrowings All loans payable are initially recognised at cost, being the fair value of the net proceeds received. Subsequent measurement is at amortised cost using the effective interest rate method. s) Resources received free of charge or for nominal cost Resources received free of charge or for nominal cost that can be reliably measured are recognised as income at fair value. Where the resource received represents a service that the Western Australian Museum would otherwise pay for, a corresponding expense is recognised. Receipt of assets are recognised in the Statement of Financial Position. Assets or services received from other State Government agencies are separately disclosed under Income from State Government in the Statement of Comprehensive Income. t) Comparative figures Comparative figures are, where appropriate, reclassified to be comparable with the figures presented in the current financial year. 3. DEPARTMENT OF CULTURE AND THE ARTS The Department of Culture and the Arts provides staff and support to agencies in the Culture and Arts portfolio. The Department receives an appropriation for salary costs, superannuation, fringe benefits tax and capital expenses. These resources, provided to the Western Australian Museum, but paid for by the Department, have been treated as 'Resources received free of charge' in the Statement of Comprehensive Income. In addition, the Department also provides shared corporate services to the Western Australian Museum that are not recognised in the Statement of Comprehensive Income. 4. JUDGEMENTS MADE BY MANAGEMENT IN APPLYING ACCOUNTING POLICIES The preparation of financial statements requires management to make judgements about the application of accounting policies that have a significant effect on the amounts recognised in the financial statements. The Western Australian Museum evaluates these judgements regularly. Operating lease commitments The Western Australian Museum has entered into commercial leases rather than finance leases for motor vehicles. The Western Australian Museum has determined that the lessor retains substantially all the risks and rewards incidental to ownership of the vehicles. Accordingly, these leases have been classified as operating leases. 5. DISCLOSURE OF CHANGES IN ACCOUNTING POLICY AND ESTIMATES Initial application of an Australian Accounting Standard The Western Australian Museum has applied the following Australian Accounting Standards effective for annual reporting periods beginning on or after 1 July 2012 that impacted on the Western Australian Museum: AASB 2011-9 Amendments to Australian Accounting Standards – Presentation of items of Other Comprehensive Income [AASB 1, 5, 7, 101, 112, 120, 121, 132, 133, 134, 1039 & 1049] This Standard requires to group items presented in other comprehensive income on the basis of whether they are potentially reclassifiable to profit or loss subsequently (reclassification adjustments). There is no financial impact. Voluntary change in accounting policy The Western Australian Museum changed the frequency of collections revaluations from three years to five years. This was approved by the Western Australian Museum Board of Trustees on 16 May 2012. The change recognises the nature of the Museum collection value is reasonably static, which is consistent with the policy not to depreciate the collection asset (see Note 2. (g) 'Museum collections'). The new frequency of revaluation is also consistent with that adopted by the national and capital city museums within Australia. The nature and context of the Western Australian Museum Collection is similar to that of other Australian museums, of course the items and size of the collections vary across Australia. The process for adding new items to the collection utilises the valuation methodology of the valuer, which means that the risk of the Western Australian Museum carrying an undervalued or overvalued collection is minimal. Future impact of Australian Accounting Standards not yet operative The Western Australian Museum cannot early adopt an Australian Accounting Standard unless specifically permitted by TI 1101 Application of Australian Accounting Standards and Other Pronouncements. Consequently, the Western Australian Museum has not applied early any of the following Australian Accounting Standards that have been issued that may impact the Western Australian Museum. Where applicable, the Western Australian Museum plans to apply these Australian Accounting Standards from their application date: Operative for reporting periods beginning on/after AASB 9 Financial Instruments This Standard supersedes AASB 139 Financial Instruments: Recognition and Measurement, introducing a number of changes to accounting treatments.

EVENTS OCCURRING AFTER THE END OF THE REPORTING PERIOD There are no significant events occurring after the end of the reporting period that would have a material financial effect on the financial statements of the Western Australian Museum. 33. EXPLANATORY STATEMENT This statement provides details of any significant variations between estimates and actual results for 2013 and between the actual results for 2012 and 2013. Significant variations are considered to be those greater than 10% and $100,000. Significant variances between estimated and actual result for 2013 Supplies and services Expenses 2013 Estimate $000 2013 Actual $000 Variation Over/(Under) $000 Supplies and services 8,363 6,341 (2,022) Depreciation and amortisation expense 2,744 2,432 (312) Income 2013 Estimate $000 2013 Actual $000 Variation Over/(Under) $000 User charges and fees 1,594 2,361 (767) Commonwealth grants and contributions 4 210 (206) Other revenue 3,088 4,041 (953) Service appropriation 4,759 7,564 (2,805) Resources received free of charge 16,946 15,987 959 Supplies and services The primary actual cost reduction compared to estimate was reduced consultants and contractors ($2.305 million). This is attributed to the imposed budgetary measures placed on the Museum. A flow on from these measures was that new Museum works, which was a significant part of this balance were delayed, such that, they were not completed within the 2012–13 financial year. Depreciation and amortisation expense The estimated depreciation and amortisation varies from the actual, due primarily to the revaluation of buildings undertaken for the 2012–13 financial year. The downwards revaluation of the buildings provided a write-back of depreciation. Sales The positive variance in sales compared to the estimate is primarily attributed to the success of exhibition ticket sales, where Unveiled has contributed $0.420 million in ticket sales, and Secrets of the Afterlife ticket sales has provided $0.169 million. There are also additional shop sales attributed to the success of these exhibitions. Commonwealth grants and contributions Commonwealth grants and contributions are difficult to estimate, since many of the Commonwealth grants are provided on a 'one-off' basis. The original estimate was based on known Commonwealth grants. However, two new grants were provided through the year (NHL Batavia Management Plan, from DEWHA, and DSEWPAC HSP) that were not included in the estimate. Other revenue Other revenue is greater than estimated due to the recognition in 2013 of items donated to the Museum Collection of $1.509 million. Additionally, the Museum received recoups from the Department of Culture and the Arts for work undertaken by the Museum and funded by the Department. Service appropriation The Western Australian Museum sought and received a Treasurer's Advance to ensure it had sufficient cash funding to cover the operations of the Museum and the restricted funds balance of the Museum. Subsequently, an appropriation was sought and received to cover the amount of the Treasurer's Advance ($2.805 million). Resources received free of charge Resources received free of charge includes funding from the Department of Culture and the Arts. The estimated resources received free of charge was affected by the efficiency dividend and FTE ceiling reduction ($2.673 million). These changes to the appropriation occured after the setting of the 2012–13 budget estimate. Significant variances between actual results for 2012 and 2013 Supplies and services Expenses 2013 $000 2012 $000 Variation Over/(Under) $000 Supplies and services 6,341 8,492 2,151 Depreciation and amortisation expense 2,432 2,742 310 Other expenses 449 317 (132) Income 2013 $000 2012 $000 Variation Over/(Under) $000 Sales 2,361 1,129 1,232 Commonwealth grants and contributions 210 548 (338) Resources received free of charge 15,987 18,250 (2,263) State grants and contributions 1,305 34 1,271 Supplies and services The primary cost reduction in 2013 compared to 2012 was the reduced consultants and contractors ($2.305 million). This is attributed to the imposed budgetary measures placed on the Museum. A flow on from these measures was that new Museum works, which was a significant part of this balance were delayed, such that, they were not completed within the 2012–13 financial year. This savings is offset by increased supplies and services related to exhibitions. Depreciation and amortisation expense The 2013 depreciation and amortisation varies from 2012, due primarily to the revaluation of buildings undertaken for the 2012–13 financial year. The downwards revaluation of the buildings provided a write-back of depreciation. Other expenses The primary other expenses in 2013 compared to 2012 was the charging of 'on-costs' to Western Australian Museum non-restricted projects. An reciprocal revenue amount is with the 'other revenue' account. Sales The positive variance in sales compared to 2012 is primarily attributed to the success of exhibition ticket sales, where Unveiled has contributed $0.420 million in ticket sales, and Secrets of the Afterlife ticket sales has provided $0.169 million. There are also additional shop sales attributed to the success of these exhibitions. Commonwealth grants and contributions The change in Commonwealth grants is attributed to successful 'one-off' grants received in 2012 and not recurring in 2013. Resources received free of charge Resources received free of charge includes funding from the Department of Culture and the Arts. The estimated resources received free of charge was affected by the efficiency dividend and FTE ceiling reduction ($2.673 million). These changes to the appropriation occured after the setting of the 2012–13 budget estimate. State grants and contributions The increase in State grants and contributions in 2013 compared to 2012 is primarily attributed to the receipt of the one-off Gorgon Net Conservation Benefits grant for $1.091 million. 34. FINANCIAL INSTRUMENTS a) Financial risk management objectives and policies Financial instruments held by the Western Australian Museum are cash and cash equivalents, restricted cash and cash equivalents, loans and receivables, borrowings and payables. The Western Australian Museum has limited exposure to financial risks. The Western Australian Museum's overall risk management program focuses on managing the risks identified below. Credit risk Credit risk arises when there is the possibility of the Western Australian Museum's receivables defaulting on their contractual obligations resulting in financial loss to the Western Australian Museum. The maximum exposure to credit risk at end of the reporting period in relation to each class of recognised financial assets is the gross carrying amount of those assets inclusive of any allowance for impairment as shown in the table at Note 33(c) 'Financial instrument disclosures' and Note 19 'Receivables'. Credit risk associated with the Western Australian Museum's financial assets is minimal because the main receivable is the amounts receivable for services (holding account). For receivables other than government, the Western Australian Museum trades only with recognised, creditworthy third parties. The Western Australian Museum has policies in place to ensure that sales of products and services are made to customers with an appropriate credit history. In addition, receivable balances are monitored on an ongoing basis with the result that the Western Australian Museum's exposure to bad debts is minimal. At the end of the reporting period there were no significant concentrations of credit risk. Liquidity risk Liquidity risk arises when the Western Australian Museum is unable to meet its financial obligations as they fall due. The Western Australian Museum is exposed to liquidity risk through its trading in the normal course of business. The Western Australian Museum has appropriate procedures to manage cash flows including drawdowns of appropriations by monitoring forecast cash flows to ensure that sufficient funds are available to meet its commitments. Market risk Market risk is the risk that changes in market prices such as foreign exchange rates and interest rates will affect the Western Australian Museum's income or the value of its holdings of financial instruments. The Western Australian Museum does not trade in foreign currency and is not materially exposed to other price risks. The Western Australian Museum's borrowings were obtained through an interest free loan from the Office of Energy. All cash and cash equivalents (except for cash floats) are interest bearing as noted at Note 33(c) 'Financial Instrument Disclosures', however the exposure to market risk for changes in interest rates is minimal as the Western Australian Museum does not rely on interest income for its principal operating activities b) Categories of financial instruments The carrying amounts of each of the following categories of financial assets and financial liabilities at the end of the reporting period are: Financial Assets 2013 $000 2012 $000 31,437 27,938 Cash and cash equivalents 775 427 Restricted cash and cash equivalents 2,415 1,991 Loans and receivables (a) 28,247 25,520 Financial Liabilities 2013 $000 2012 $000 4,294 3,662 Financial liabilities measured at amortised cost 4,294 3,662 (a) The amount of loans and receivables excludes GST recoverable from the ATO (statutory receivable). c) Financial instrument disclosures Credit risk and interest rate risk exposure The following table discloses the Western Australian Museum's exposure to credit risk and the ageing analysis of financial assets. The Western Australian Museum's maximum exposure to credit risk at the end of the reporting period is the carrying amount of financial assets as shown below. The table discloses the ageing of financial assets that are past due but not impaired and impaired financial assets.

INCOME AND EXPENSES BY SERVICE For the financial year ended 30 June 2013, the Western Australian Museum operated under one service titled 'Museum Services' and therefore service information is reflected in the Statement of Comprehensive Income. Certification of key performance indicators FOR THE YEAR ENDED 30 JUNE 2013 We hereby certify that the key performance indicators are based on proper records, are relevant and appropriate for assisting users to assess the Western Australian Museum's performance, and fairly represent the performance of the Western Australian Museum for the financial year ended 30 June 2013. Signed: Alan Robson Chair, Western Australian Museum Board of Trustees 11 September 2013 Signed: Steve Scudamore Member, Western Australian Museum Board of Trustees 11 September 2013 Detailed key performance indicators information Explanation The Western Australian Museum annual budget is included in the budget statements under the outcome for the Department of Culture and the Arts. The Department of Culture and the Arts co-ordinates reporting of key performance indicators at the whole of the Culture and the Arts portfolio level and reports aggregated amounts in its Annual Report. The structure aligns the portfolio and the Museum's desired outcomes with the government's Strategic Planning Framework. Government Desired Outcomes Western Australia's natural, cultural and documentary collections are preserved, accessible and sustainable. Service Museum Services KEY EFFECTIVENESS INDICATORS Preservation Extent to which the State Collection that requires preservation is preserved. Note: Preservation of the entire "Collection" is not required, therefore this measure only relates to that part of the "Collection" that is required to be preserved. Accessibility Number of people using and accessing the State Collection. Percentage of visitors satisfied with the services associated with accessing the Museum Collection. Sustainability Value of the State Collection renewal, content development and/or expansion as a proportion of collection value. KEY EFFICIENCY INDICATOR Service Indicator Museum Services Average cost of Museum services per Museum visitor or person accessing collection KEY EFFECTIVENESS INDICATOR ONE – PRESERVATION INDICATOR Extent to which the Museum Collection, that requires preservation, is preserved Note: Preservation of the entire "Collection" is not required, therefore this measure only relates to that part of the "Collection" that is required to be preserved. MEASUREMENT The Museum has developed bench line data and reports the number of items added to the Collection each year. Measurement of Indicator 2009–10 2010–11 2011–12 2012–13 Proportion of Collection stored in controlled environment 98.87% 98.91% 99.29% 99.29% Number of items from the Collection described and recorded on the relevant data base 1,188,656(1) 1,221,306 1,250,469 1,272,022 (1) The decline in the number of items described and recorded on electronic databases is owing to the gradual transfer of written register information into relevant electronic databases. The figures in the financial years (2007–08 and 2008–09) have included written information on register books, written information transferred to electronic databases, and information directly registered on electronic databases. Furthermore, the Museum databases objects and specimens in groups or lots i.e. one registration number may consist of one specimen/object or many. The development of an integrated collection management system is progressing. Owing to the confidential nature of the cultural information associated with the Secret and Sacred Collection, it has neither been valued nor counted as part of the Museum collections, in accordance with wishes of the elders. However, the Anthropology department has the material documented. OBJECTS ADDED TO THE COLLECTION IN 2012–13 The table below documents the number of items added to the Collection 2012–13.

MEASUREMENT This is calculated by dividing the value of the Collection by the income received from State Government, not including the capital user charge. The result will be a percentage figure that demonstrates the percentage of the Collection value spent annually by the Government in renewal, content development or expansion of the Collection. It is proposed to benchmark this figure against other museum collections and to average the indicator over five years. The Collection was first valued in 2005–06 and was completely re-valued again in 2008–09.

Summary of key performance indicators Outcome 1: Western Australia's natural, cultural and documentary collections are preserved, accessible and sustainable. 2012–13 Target Actual Variation Key Effectiveness Indicator: Preservation: Extent to which Western Australia's natural, cultural and documentary collections, that require preservation, are preserved. 98.08% 99.29% 0.21% Key Effectiveness Indicator: Accessibility: The number of accesses to Western Australia's natural, cultural and documentary collections per capita. – Number of accesses(7) 1,487,064 2,097,375 610,311 – Accesses per capita(8) 0.623 0.848 0.225 Percentage of clients satisfied with the services associated with accessing Western Australia's natural, cultural and documentary collections(9). 85% 97% 12% Key Effectiveness Indicator: Sustainability: Value of the State Collection renewal, content development and/or expansion as a proportion of collection value.(10) 3.52% 3.61% 0.09% Key Efficiency Indicator: Average cost of Museum services per Museum visitor or person accessing collection.(11) $38.49 $34.99 $3.50 (7) Total number of accesses is the total of visitors to Museum sites (879,145) and unique visits to www.museum.wa.gov.au (1,218,230). It does not include visits to Western Australian Museum youTube, Facebook or third party websites. Inclusive in overall unique visitors are individual video views (479,674), PDF downloads (1,549,757), web pages (21,958,404). The significant increase in total accesses for the year is attributed to a higher than expected number of visits to the Museum's website, driven by the introduction of an online ticketing service for paid exhibitions and programs. (8) Accesses per capita are based on the number of accesses and Western Australian population of 2,473,000 as quoted on ABS Data table 3101.0 (WA) for December 2012. (9) There has been a change in survey instrument and method of administration to improve the efficicacy of the data – from self selection on an online kiosk to a randomly selected semi self administered survey. (10) The variation from target to actual is due to the minimal movement in indexation for the Collection. (11) Total cost of services = $30,765 million. Total visitation = 879,145. This Key Performance Indicator excludes visits to www.museum.wa.gov.au to provide a consistent methodology with the 2012–13 Target. Other financial disclosures Major Capital Projects Incomplete Lighting upgrade in Katta Djinoong: first peoples of Western Australia exhibition. This $0.123 million project commenced in the 2012–13 financial year with some $0.009 million spent to prepare the tender documentation. The remaining funds have been committed and the project is expected to be complete by end of September 2013. The Museum expended some $0.528 million to plan and prepare for the New Museum project which commences in earnest in the 2013–14 financial year. It should be noted that Department of Culture and the Arts manages this budget and overall expenditure in 2012–13 was $1.603 million. MAJOR CAPITAL PROJECTS COMPLETED Final piece of work to remediate the Perth site after the demolition of the Francis Street building – remediation of the Museum's loading bay area – was completed this year. Overall the Demolition and Remediation project cost was $6,186,928. Governance disclosures There are no matters to be disclosed in this reporting period with regards potential conflicts of interest or the Museum's enabling legislation. Governance Framework The Museum continues to operate under its Governance Framework which was endorsed by the Board of Trustees in 2012.

The Museum is committed to ensuring that people with disabilities, their families and their carers have the same opportunities, rights and responsibilities as others to access the range of services, information and facilities the Museum provides, as well as provide input into, and be consulted about, the development of a New Museum for Western Australia. Progress in 2012–13 towards meeting the desired outcomes of the Museum's Disability Access and Inclusion Plan is outlined below. Outcome 1: People with disabilities have the same opportunities as other people to access the services of, and any events organised by, the Museum. The Museum's Exhibition and Design Team developed an Accessibility Checklist for the Museum's exhibitions. This requires elements of exhibitions to be benchmarked against best practice in terms of accessibility prior to the launch of the exhibition. The Accessibility Checklist was completed in relation to the Secrets of the Afterlife exhibition which opened at Perth site on 17 May 2013. An Auslan smartphone app was employed during the exhibition Unveiled: 200 years of Wedding Glamour, open from 8 December 2012 to 2 April 2013 at the Museum's Perth site. Text captioning was used for audio content in the Secrets and Unveiled exhibitions. Live Auslan interpretation was used at public lectures related to the Secrets exhibition delivered by Dr John Taylor and Dr Alanah Buck and these lectures were well attended by members of the deaf community. Outcome 2: People with disabilities have the same opportunities as other people to access the buildings and other facilities of the Museum. The universal access path and ramp at the Museum's Kalgoorlie-Boulder site was improved and extended. A universal access audit was completed for the Museum's public sites in Fremantle's the Maritime Museum and Shipwreck Galleries. The audit outcomes have been factored into capital works funding applications in 2013–14. A scope of works and estimate of costs for replacement of the lift at the Shipwreck Galleries was completed. Outcome 3: People with disabilities receive information from the Museum in a format that will enable them to access the information as readily as other people are able to access it. State Government access guidelines for promotional material and invitations (contained in the State Government Access Guidelines for Information, Services and Facilities (2012)) have been reformatted into a Museum document for use in published material. The Museum's web team has reformatted the organisation's website to make it as consistent as possible with Web Content Accessibility Guideline (WCAG) v2.0 AA. Information has been added to the Museum's internet site providing accessibility in relation to public sites, including information relating to ACROD parking bays, drop-off areas, use of guide and assistance dogs in the Museum, and Companion Cards. Outcome 4: People with disabilities receive the same level and quality of service from staff of the Museum as other people receive from the staff of the Museum. Disability awareness training by trainers with disabilities was delivered to managers at the Museum during 2012–13. This training focused on encouraging managers to see the Museum from the perspective of people with disabilities and included a critical evaluation of the Maritime Museum from the perspective of the trainers. The nexus between accessibility and delivery of community value was also a key theme of the training. Vision Awareness Training was conducted by a vision impaired trainer to a range of staff and volunteers during 2012–13. The training instilled a better understanding of the issues effecting people with visual impairment, covering challenges and solutions for those who provide assistance based on inclusive practice. A focus was on ensuring that interpretive delivery meets the standards required for vision impaired visitors to access Museum content. Outcome 5: People with disabilities have the same opportunities as other people to make complaints about the Museum. The Museum is finalising a new policy on the making of Complaints, Comments and Compliments by all visitors to the Museum including those with disabilities. The policy ensures that complaint mechanisms are accessible for people with disabilities and can be made in a flexible manner. Outcome 6: People with disabilities have the same opportunities as other people to participate in any public consultation by the Museum. A list of contacts at organisations, associations and for advocates representing people with disabilities has been incorporated into the Museum's Customer Relationship Management System and will be updated on an ongoing basis. Terms of Reference for a New Museum Accessibility Panel were developed during 2012–13 and the Museum commenced the identification of Panel representation and membership. The Department of Culture and the Arts conducted public consultation to provide Portfolio agencies input into their Disability Access and Inclusion Plans. The report on the consultation was factored into the development of the Museum's Disability Access Inclusion Plan 2013–17, which was finalised during 2012–13. Compliance with Public Sector Standards and Ethical Codes (Public Sector Management Act 1994, s31(1)) The Public Sector Management Act 1994 establishes a clear division of responsibility between a Chief Executive Officer and an 'employing authority' in the administration and management of public sector departments, agencies and organisations. The Department of Culture and the Arts is the 'employing authority' for Museum staff, with the exception that the Chief Executive Officer's 'employing authority' is the Public Sector Commissioner. The Department of Culture and the Arts has continued educating the Culture and Arts Portfolio agencies workforce in Public Sector Standards and Public Sector Code of Ethics, ensuring legislative and public sector compliance is achieved. The Department continued to record low instances of compliance breach claims. In the 2012–13 financial year, there were no breaches of the Public Sector Standards reported for the portfolio. Nor were there any substantiated breaches of the Code of Ethics or the Department's Code of Conduct during the same period. 2012–13 initiatives included educating staff through induction, compulsory Code of Conduct review and through continued supportive online tools. Highlights: The Department with the assistance of the AIMWA, delivered a manager induction program for all managers across the portfolio. Through this program, managers gained an understanding of the legislative and policy framework within Culture and the Arts and the WA Public Sector, including the importance of the manager's role and the responsibilities related to operational performance, financial and non-financial reporting and compliance. Accountability and Ethical Decision Making training commenced in the second half of the reporting period. 99 per cent of all portfolio staff, including regional staff, successfully completing the training with a minimum pass mark of 80 per cent, by June 30 2013. Museum employees had an average pass mark of 94.25 per cent. Recordkeeping plans (State Records Act 2000 & State Records Commission Standard 2, Principle 6) The Museum is required to report on the following measures with regard to its recordkeeping practices: Whether the efficiency and effectiveness of the organisation's recordkeeping systems have been evaluated or alternatively when such an evaluation is proposed. The Museum's Recordkeeping Plan details the recordkeeping systems and practices currently in place. The next complete review of the Plan is scheduled for 2014. In 2012, the Museum's Retention and Disposal Schedule was fully revised and updated. The revised schedule was approved by the State Records Commission in December 2012 and has now been implemented by the Museum. The nature and extent of the recordkeeping training program conducted by or for the organisation. Ongoing training and support for staff across the organisation is provided by the Museum's Records Management unit. Newly developed training material and recordkeeping resources have been added to the Museum's intranet making such material available to all staff for the first time. During training sessions the roles and responsibilities of staff in regards to their recordkeeping obligations is reinforced. Whether the efficiency and effectiveness of the recordkeeping training program have been reviewed or alternatively when this is planned to be done. The main focus for recordkeeping training at this stage is staff use of the TRIM record management system (RMS). An assessment of fuller training needs/ requirements is planned in conjunction with the review of the Museum's Recordkeeping Plan in 2013–14. Assurance that the organisation's induction program addresses employee roles and responsibilities in regard to their compliance with the organisation's recordkeeping plan. The induction program for new Museum employees that is provided by the Department of Culture and the Arts addresses general recordkeeping responsibilities. Under the Museum's Recordkeeping Plan, the records management awareness training program – detailing responsibilities and recordkeeping practices – is compulsory for new employees. Government policy requirements Substantive Equality In the 2011–12 financial year, the Department of Culture and the Arts (DCA) established the Substantive Equality Reference Group which continues to provide advice to the portfolio on substantive equality and targeting community Arts and Culture needs. In the 2012–13 financial year, the new policy and communication plan for substantive equality progressed satisfactorily. Needs and Impact Assessments are continuing to help identify key areas to increase access to services, improve links in the wider community and increase staff awareness of Substantive Equality and how it contributes to service delivery and business activity. Occupational Safety, Health and Injury Management The Department of Culture and the Arts is committed to providing and maintaining a safe and healthy work environment for all of its employees, contractors and visitors. This is demonstrated through the development of policies, procedures and work practices to address hazards, to ensure that all employees are safe from injuries and risks to health while they are at work. The Department and Portfolio agencies facilitate OSH consultation through systems including agency specific OSH committees, the election of safety representatives, a hazard and incident reporting process, routine workplace hazard inspections and a process for the resolution of OSH issues. Staff are made aware of these processes at their staff induction, through specific OSH training and by having access to OSH information on the intranet. The policy and procedures of DCA and Portfolio agencies are compliant with the Occupational Safety and Health Act 1984 and the Workers Compensation and Injury Management Act 1981. These procedures outline the department's commitment to assist employees to return to work after a work-related injury or disease. DCA engages in formal, documented programs for employees requiring modified duties and information on workers' compensation and injury management is provided to staff at induction and via the intranet. Three compensation claims were recorded during the financial year. This compares with 10 compensation claims recorded in 2011–12. A review of the DCA's OSH management system was undertaken formally in 2012 to ensure relevance and compliance to codes of practice and guidelines. An audit of both the DCA and the Portfolio agencies was completed using the WorkSafe Plan as the benchmark, with an implementation plan developed for 2013–15 to focus on recommendations in the areas of management commitment, planning, consultation, hazard management and training.
