Department of Infrastructure and Regional Development
Section 1: Entity overview and resources
The Department's strategic direction statement has changed since tabling of the 2014‑15 Portfolio Budget Statements (PB Statements). On 1 September 2014, amendments to the Infrastructure Australia Act 2008 came into effect. The amendments re-established Infrastructure Australia as a Corporate Commonwealth Entity under the Public Governance, Performance and Accountability Act 2013 (previously Infrastructure Australia was a statutory council). References to Infrastructure Australia have been removed from the Department's strategic direction.
The Entity resource statement details the resourcing for the Department at Additional Estimates. Table 1.1 shows the total resources from all sources for the 2014‑15 Budget year, including variations through Appropriation Bills No. 3 and No. 4, special appropriations and special accounts.
