Defence Budget home page

Each financial year the Department of Defence produces three major Statutory Reports:

The Australian Government's central Budget website

  1. Portfolio Budget Statements which provide detailed explanations and justifications of the proposed appropriations to Defence in Appropriation Bills (Nos 1 and 2).
  2. Portfolio Additional Estimates Statements which outline additional funding requirements being sought by Defence and explain the variation between the Budget and Additional Estimates.
  3. Annual Report which is the Secretary's and Chief of the Defence Force's account to the Minister for Defence of the performance and achievements of the Department for the financial year.
