Output Class Performance Reports

A A A

OUTPUT CLASS STRUCTURE

The performance reporting sequence follows the Output Class structure presented in the Department of Transport and Regional Development 1998-99 Portfolio Budget Statements [PDFPDF: 248 KB], as amended by the December 1998 Portfolio Additional Estimates Statements, which reflect changes made by the Administrative Arrangements Order of 21 October 1998.

The Maritime Program was transferred to the Department from the former Department of Workplace Relations and Small Business (Program 5) and is reported here as Output Class 10.

The following programs and resources were transferred to the Department of Transport and Regional Services from the former Department of Primary Industries and Energy (subprogram 1.5):

  • Countrylink Australia;
  • CreditCare;
  • Part of the Rural Women's Unit;
  • Rural Development Centre Grant;
  • Research, Information and Data Fund;
  • Rural Domestic Violence Programme;
  • Rural Communities Program; and
  • Understanding Rural Australia Program.

They are reported here under Output Class 9.

PERFORMANCE REPORTING

Performance reporting for each Output Class is presented against the description of planned major activities, planned levels of achievement and planned performance information set out in the Department's 1998-99 Portfolio Budget Statements [PDFPDF: 248 KB].


PORTFOLIO FINANCIAL AND STAFFING RESOURCES SUMMARY

Portfolio financial and staffing resources summary

A reconciliation of programs and appropriation elements, broken down by subprogram, is shown at Appendix 10.

Although the Department trialed an outputs-based approach to budgeting during 1998-99, the financial statements guidelines required the financial statements to be prepared on a program basis. Consequently, the financial and staffing resource tables included in this annual report have been prepared on a program basis to be consistent with the financial statements.

The figures in the total below include components of appropriations for all program items in the portfolio.

Running costs and staffing costs, figured in the resource tables for individual subprograms administered by the Department, do not include an allocation of corporate overheads to reflect the benefits derived by those subprograms.
