The purpose of the Portfolio Additional Estimates Statements (PAES), like that of the Portfolio Budget 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. However, unlike the Portfolio Budget Statements, the PAES summarise only the changes in resourcing by Outcome since the Budget, that is, they do not include a complete resourcing table for the agency. The PAES include new measures, summaries of the changes by Appropriation Bill, and, where relevant, by Special Appropriation and Special Account.

The PAES facilitate understanding of the proposed appropriations in Appropriation Bills (No. 3 and No. 4) 2012-13. 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 Part 15AB of the Acts Interpretation Act 1901.

Whereas the Mid-Year Economic and Fiscal Outlook 2012-13 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.

This document contains the PAES for the Defence Materiel Organisation, a prescribed agency within Defence, which equips and sustains the ADF through the acquisition of capital equipment assets and sustainment of these assets, and Defence Housing Australia, 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 tables statements separately.
