Appendix K-Performance indicators modified since the PBS

As described in the Overview for Chapters 3 and 4, in the lead-up to publication of the 2007-08 Portfolio Budget Statements (PBS), a review of performance indicators was undertaken, as a consequence of which the wording of a number of existing performance indicators was clarified. Additionally, a number of new performance indicators were developed for some existing outcomes/programmes, and where they were applicable to 2006-07 activities they have been included in this report. The following table shows those performance indicators modified or introduced as a consequence of the 2007-08 PBS performance indicator review.

This table does not show the performance indicators for new programmes announced in the 2006-07 Portfolio Additional Estimates Statements (PAES), which were published in that document, or for the AusLink Strategic Regional-supplementary funding administered programme for which the performance indicators will be published in the 2007-08 PAES.
