Department of Defence: Departmental Staff Lost and Stolen Equipment

(Question No. 1181)


Mr Conroy asked the Minister representing the Minister for Defence, in writing, on 17 August 2015:

In 2014-15, what sum was spent on replacing lost, stolen or misplaced equipment of departmental staff, and what goods were replaced.


Ms Julie Bishop: The Minister for Defence has provided the following answer to the honourable member's question:

Equipment expenditure is recorded in Defence financial systems. However, Defence is unable to identify the amount spent on replacing lost, stolen or misplaced equipment. To provide a response to this question would be an unreasonable diversion of departmental resources.
