A grants management system was developed to automate the process for lodgment and assessment of applications for grants. The grants management system provides secure access through the Chief Information Officer Group's Defence online systems domain. Implementation of the grants management system has already resulted in significant processing efficiencies for industry applicants and DMO staff.
Information on recipients of discretionary grants provided by the DMO during the period 1 July 2012 to 30 June 2013 is available online for the Skilling Australia's Defence Industry Program, the Industry Skilling Enhancement package, the Priority Industry Capability Innovation Program, and the New Air Combat 2012-13 Capability-Industry Support Program.
The tactical payment scheme was legislated on 1 July 2009 under sections 123H and J of the Defence Act 1903. The scheme was introduced in financial year 2009-10 to provide a means for making expeditious non-liability payments resulting from military actions by deployed forces. This scheme continues to provide mechanisms for maintaining local community support and thereby ensuring the safety of deployed forces.
In 2012-13, 802 individual payments totalling $67,235 were made under the scheme. Further information is outlined in Note 34 of the 2012-13 financial statements.
In 2012-13, Defence paid 1,675,847 or 98.9 per cent of all payment transactions by their due date. This result is ahead of the 90 per cent government benchmark. The volume of payments through Defence Purchase and Travel Cards represents more than 79 per cent (2011-12, 81 per cent) of all payments, which continues to have a positive effect on the paid-by due-date result.
