Latest Annual Report

Annual reports, portfolio budget and additional estimates statements are the principal formal accountability mechanisms between government, departments and the Parliament. Portfolio budget statements set out performance targets for departmental outputs and contributions to desired Government outcomes when funds are appropriated, portfolio additional estimates statements may contain revised targets, and annual reports describe achievement against those targets.

Portfolio Budget Statements and Additional Estimates Statements for 2005 onwards are also available on the Budget site.

The 2019-20 Defence Annual Report can be also be found on the whole of Government Transparency Portal, the central repository of publicly available corporate information for all Commonwealth bodies.
