User Guide and Portfolio Overview 

The purpose of the Portfolio Additional Estimates Statements (PAES), like that of the Portfolio Budget Statements (PB Statements), is to inform Senators and Members of Parliament and the public of the proposed allocation of resources to Government outcomes by agencies within the Portfolio. The focus of the PAES differs from the PB Statements in one important aspect. While the PAES include an Agency Resource Statement to inform Parliament of the revised estimate of the total resources available to an agency, the focus of the PAES is on explaining the changes in resourcing by outcome(s) since the Budget. As such, the PAES provides information on new measures and their impact on the financial and/or non-financial planned performance of programs supporting those outcomes.

The PAES facilitate understanding of the proposed appropriations in Appropriation Bills (No. 3 and No. 4) 2010-11. In this sense the PAES is declared by the Additional Estimates Appropriation Bills to be a ‘relevant document’ to the interpretation of the Bills according to section 15AB of the Acts Interpretation Act 1901.

Whereas the Mid-Year Economic and Fiscal Outlook 2010-11 is a mid-year budget report which provides updated information to allow the assessment of the Government’s fiscal performance against its fiscal strategy, the PAES update the most recent budget appropriations for agencies within the Portfolio.

Structure of the Portfolio Additional Estimates Statements

The PAES are presented in three parts with subsections.

Glossary 

Accrual accounting
System of accounting in which items are brought to account and included in the financial statements as they are earned or incurred, rather than as they are received or paid.
Additional Estimates
Where amounts appropriated at Budget time are insufficient, Parliament may appropriate more funds to portfolios through the Additional Estimates Acts.
Administered funds
Usually, the funds or expenses an agency manages on behalf of the Government.
Administered items
Appropriation that consists of funding managed on behalf of the Commonwealth. This funding is not at the discretion of the agency, and any unspent appropriation is returned to the Consolidated Revenue Fund (CRF) at the end of the financial year. An administered item is a component of an administered program. It may be a measure but will not constitute a program in its own right.
Annual appropriation
Two appropriation Bills are introduced into Parliament in May and comprise the Budget. Further Bills are introduced later in the financial year as part of the additional estimates. Parliamentary departments have their own appropriations.
Appropriation
An amount of public money parliament authorises for spending (i.e. funds to be withdrawn from the CRF). Parliament makes laws for appropriating money under the Annual Appropriation Acts and under special appropriations, with spending restricted to the purposes specified in the Appropriation Acts.
Appropriation Bill (No. 1)
This Bill proposes spending from the CRF for the ordinary annual services of Government. Once the Bill is passed by Parliament and given Royal Assent, it becomes the Appropriation Act (No. 1).
Appropriation Bill (No. 2)
This Bill proposes spending from the CRF for purposes other than the ordinary annual services of Government. Under existing arrangements between the two Houses of Parliament (the ‘Compact'), this Bill includes appropriation funding of administered expenses for new outcomes, for payments to the states and territories, and for departmental or administered capital. Funding for extensions to existing programs can be included in Appropriation Bill (No. 1). Once the Bill is passed by Parliament and given Royal Assent, it becomes the Appropriation Act (No. 2).
Appropriation Bills (Nos. 3 and 4)
If an amount provided in Appropriation Acts (No. 1 or 2) is not enough to meet approved expenditure to be paid in a financial year, supplementary appropriation may be sought in Appropriation Bills (No. 3 or 4). Once these Bills are passed by Parliament and given Royal Assent, they become the Appropriation Acts (Nos 3 and 4). However, they are also commonly referred to as the Additional Estimates Bills.
Assets
Future economic benefits controlled by an entity as a result of past transactions or other past events.
Average staffing level
The average number of employees receiving salary/wages (or compensation in lieu of salary/wages) over a financial year, with adjustments for casual and part-time employees to show the full-time equivalent.
Commonwealth Authorities
and Companies Act 1997
Sets out the financial management, accountability and audit obligations on Commonwealth statutory authorities and companies in which the Commonwealth has at least a direct controlling interest.
Consolidated Revenue Fund
The principal operating fund from which money is drawn to pay for the activities of the Government. Section 81 of the Australian Constitution provides that all revenue raised or monies received by the Executive Government forms one consolidated revenue fund from which appropriations are made for the purposes of the Australian Government.
Cross Portfolio Budget Measure
A Budget measure that affects programs administered in a number of portfolios.
Departmental items
Resources (assets, liabilities, revenues and expenses) that agency Chief Executive Officers control directly. This includes outsourced activities funded and controlled by the agency. Examples of departmental items include agency running costs, accrued employee entitlements and net appropriations. A departmental item is a component of a departmental program.
Depreciation
Apportionment of an asset's capital value as an expense over its estimated useful life to take account of normal usage, obsolescence or the passage of time.
Equity or Net assets
Residual interest in the assets of an entity after deduction of its liabilities.
Estimates
An agency's expected revenues, expenses, assets, liabilities and cash flows. They are prepared for each output in the Budget, in consultation with the Department of Finance and Deregulation. (See also Forward Estimates and Additional Estimates).
Expenses
Total value of all of the resources consumed in producing goods and services or the loss of future economic benefits in the form of reductions in assets or increases in liabilities of an entity.
Financial Management
and Accountability Act 1997
The principal legislation governing the proper use and management of public money and public property, and other Commonwealth resources. FMA Regulations and FMA Orders are made pursuant to the Act.
Forward Estimates
The financial statement estimate for the three out years after the budget year.
Grants
Non-reciprocal transfers of economic resources, in which the payer agency does not receive approximately equal value in return.
Key performance
indicators
Qualitative and quantitative measures of an output that provide a guide on performance where direct causal links are not obvious and changes in performance are difficult to measure directly.
Measure
A new policy or savings decision of the Government with financial impacts on the Government's underlying cash balance, fiscal balance, operating balance, headline cash balance, net debt or net worth.
Mid Year Economic
and Fiscal Outlook
Provides an update of the Government's budget estimates by examining expenses and revenues year to date, as well as provisions for new decisions that have been taken since the Budget. The report provides updated information to allow the assessment of the Government's fiscal performance against the fiscal strategy set out in its current fiscal strategy statement.
Operating result
Equals revenue less expenses.
Outcome
The intended result, consequence or impact of government actions on the Australian community.
Outcome statement
Articulates the intended results, activities and target group of an Australian Government agency. An outcome statement serves three main purposes within the financial framework:
  • to explain and control the purposes for which annual appropriations are approved by the Parliament for use by agencies
  • to provide a basis for annual budgeting, including (financial) reporting against the use of appropriated funds
  • to measure and assess agency and program (non-financial) performance in contributing to government policy objectives.
Outputs
The goods and services produced by agencies on behalf of Government for external organisations or individuals. Outputs also include goods and services for other areas of government external to the agency.
Performance information
Evidence about performance that is collected and used systematically. Evidence may relate to appropriateness, effectiveness and efficiency. It may be about outcomes, factors that affect outcomes, and what can be done to improve them.
Portfolio
A Minister's area of responsibility as a member of Cabinet. A portfolio consists of one or more Departments of State (Portfolio Departments) and agencies with similar general objectives and outcomes.
Price
The amount the government or community pays for the delivery of agreed outputs.
Program
An activity that delivers benefits, services or transfer payments to individuals, industry and/or the community as a whole, with the aim of achieving the intended result specified in an outcome statement.
Receipts
The total or gross amount received by the Commonwealth. Each receipt item is either revenue, an offset within outlays, or financing transactions. Receipts include taxes, interest, charges for goods and services, borrowings and Government Business Enterprise dividends received.
Revenue
Total value of resources earned or received to cover the production of goods and services, or increases in future economic benefits in the form of increases in assets or reductions in liabilities of an entity.
Special Accounts
Balances existing within the CRF that are supported by standing appropriations (FMA Act ss. 20 and 21). Special Accounts allow money in the CRF to be acknowledged as set aside (hypothecated) for a particular purpose. Amounts credited to a Special Account may only be spent for the purposes of the Special Account. Special Accounts can only be established by a written determination of the Finance Minister (FMA Act, s. 20) or through an Act of Parliament (referred to in s. 21 of the FMA Act).
Special appropriation
(including standing appropriations)
An amount of money appropriated by a particular Act of Parliament for a specific purpose and number of years. For special appropriations, the authority to withdraw funds from the CRF does not generally cease at the end of the financial year.
Standing appropriations are a subcategory consisting of ongoing special appropriations; the amount appropriated will depend on circumstances specified in the legislation.
