The first NGER data collection period is coming to a close and companies should now be focusing on finalising and submitting their 2008/09 NGER dataset.

It is important that effective planning is carried out so that reporters (and CEOs) can ensure that complete and accurate reports are submitted by the due date.

Unlike previous reporting programs, companies should be viewing this dataset in the same context as their financials, ensuring that appropriate data checking, and risk management is applied. Companies should also keep in mind that NGER data will be made publicly available.

This may include:

  • Planning your key dates between now and 31st October 2009
  • Engaging with your CEO on the sign off process
  • Finalising your strategy for reviewing your readiness to report, including correct application of the legislation, ability to meet audit requirements and the completeness and accuracy of the dataset
  • Determining the process for entering and verifying data within OSCAR

It is important to note that each of these activities takes time and the reporting deadline is at the end of the financial year. Energetics' team of NGER experts can provide the support your business needs to address each of these issues.
