Coding of Executive Agencies
An error has been identified in the coding of Executive Agencies for 2011 and 2012 Personnel Reports. DoE Planning Service was no longer an Agency from 31 March 2011, and DRD Roads Service was no longer an Agency from 31 March 2012, both of which were incorrectly coded as Agencies during processing. A routine has been applied to correct the coding, and the revised reports are available to download here.
