The purpose of the Portfolio Supplementary Additional Estimates Statements No. 2 (PSAES No. 2) is to explain Appropriation Bill (No. 5) 2008-09. This document serves to inform senators and members of parliament and the public of the proposed allocation of supplementary additional appropriations to Government outcomes by agencies within the portfolio. 

The PSAES No. 2 are declared by Appropriation Bill (No. 5) 2008-09 to be a 'relevant document' to the interpretation of the Bill according to section 15AB of the Acts Interpretation Act 1901. 

Whereas the PSAES No. 2 are focused on explaining the Supplementary Additional Estimates appropriations, information on total 2008-09 Budget resourcing and a full set of agency budgeted financial statements can be found in the 2008-09 Portfolio Additional Estimates Statements which accompanied the 2008-09 annual Appropriation Bills (No. 3) and (No. 4). 

1.1 Overview of Supplementary Additional Appropriations Sought


On 3 February 2009, the Australian Government announced measures for a Nation Building and Jobs Plan to support jobs and invest in future long term economic growth. The Nation Building and Jobs Plan builds on the Government's earlier Economic Security Strategy package as a response to the severe global recession. 

The Department of Families, Housing, Community Services and Indigenous Affairs (FaHCSIA) is seeking additional appropriations of $28.5 million through Appropriation Bill (No. 5) 2008-09 and a reduction of $74.7 million through Special Appropriations. These variations are due to additional measures and other variations announced under the Nation Building and Jobs Plan since the Portfolio Supplementary Additional Estimates Statements. 

1.2 Agency Resource Statement


The Agency Resource Statement details the resourcing for FaHCSIA at Supplementary Additional Estimates. Table 1.1 outlines the total resourcing available from all sources for the 2008 09 Budget year, including variations through Appropriation Bill (No. 5) 2008-09, Special Appropriations and Special Accounts.
