External Consultants

External consultants investigate assigned problems under limited direction or supervision and provide recommendations or options for improvement. External consultants assist Defence management in decision-making, but do not implement those decisions. Defence contracts consultants for one of the following reasons:

When contracting for a consultant, value for money considerations relate not only to cost, but to the experience and demonstrated capabilities of the consultant; the location of the consultant and the associated travelling costs; the capacity of the consultant's locally-based resources to provide continuing services at levels likely to be required during the course of the engagement; and the consultant's professional standing and reputation.

The table below summarises Defence use of consultants, on a Group basis.

Notes
  1. The Finance Minister's Orders for 2002-03 require separate disclosure for legal compensation expenses. Accordingly, legal compensation expenses for 2001-02 have also been shown separately resulting in a decrease for the total Consultants and Professional Services category from $280.2m reported in the 2001-02 financial statements to $257.9m in the comparative year in the 2002-03 financial statements.

Revised definitions for external service providers - consultants, professional service providers and contractors - will apply from 1 July 2003. In summary, they are as follows:

These definitions, together with a refined reporting framework, will help ensure accurate, consistent and quality information on Defence's industry workforce and better meet the requirements for statutory reporting, the needs of stakeholders and internal workforce planning and management.
