Annual Report 2014–15

Volume 1, Part 2 : Performance

Chapter 4
Outcome 2

Outcome 2: The advancement of Australia’s strategic interests through the conduct of military operations and other tasks as directed by the Government

Summary

The Australian Defence Force (ADF) advances Australia’s strategic interests by planning for, and developing and maintaining, the capability to deter and defeat armed attacks on Australia; and by planning for, conducting, controlling and evaluating Defence and/or coalition contributions to government-directed operations. These operations include those that contribute to the security of the immediate neighbourhood (Programme 2.1) and those that support wider interests (Programme 2.2). Their objectives in relation to this outcome and current status are detailed in this chapter.

The ADF has contributed to maintaining a stable security environment where national programmes focus on peace, reconciliation, economic recovery, law and order and good governance across all ADF operations.

All deliverables and key performance indicators for Outcome 2 were fully met.
