The purpose of the Defence Portfolio Budget Statements is to provide further explanation for Senators and Members of the proposed expenditure for Defence in Appropriation Bills (Nos. 1 and 2) 2005-06.

This document contains the Portfolio Budget Statements for the Defence Housing Authority, which provides housing to meet Defence's requirements.

The document does not address the Department of Veterans' Affairs, which is part of the Defence Portfolio but for which Budget Statements are tabled separately.

The performance information contained in the Defence Portfolio Budget Statements is derived from the Government-endorsed Defence Management and Finance Plan 2004-14. The plan is classified for reasons of national security.

The chapter structure of the Portfolio Budget Statements 2005-06 has changed from the 2004-05 structure to a provide more logical flow of information and to prepare for the Defence Materiel Organisation (DMO) becoming a prescribed agency under the Financial Management and Accountability Act 1997 from 1 July 2005. Financial information for Defence (including DMO) has been grouped together. A separate chapter has been established which includes a budget overview of the DMO for visibility purposes prior to separate financial accountability from Defence in 2005-06.
