Defence: Personnel Headcount

(Question No. 242)


Ms Brodtmann asked the Assistant Minister for Defence, in writing, on 17 July 2014:

For each electoral division as at 30 June 2014, and as contained in the final pay figures for the final quarter for 2013-14 within the Defence People Group of the Minister's department, what was the (a) personnel headcount for (i) the Navy, (ii) the Army, (iii) the Air Force, (iv) civilians, and (v) Reserves, and (b) number of civilians (i) on fixed-term contracts, and (ii) employed part-time.


Mr Robert: The answer to the honourable member's question is as follows:

(a) (i) to (v) The personnel headcount as at 30 June 2014 for Navy, Army, Air Force, Reserves and APS for each electoral division is provided in Table A below. The total Australian Public Service (APS) workforce by actual headcount was 21,193, of which 93 employees were on fixed-term contracts and 1,352 were part time.

Note that these figures are based on headcount data, rather than full-time equivalents (FTE). Defence budgets for its APS workforce on a FTE (ie paid) basis. Headcount data counts all personnel equally regardless of the number of hours worked, and includes all personnel recorded as on duty, or on leave with or without pay.

By way of comparison, the Defence APS workforce by actual FTE as at 30 June 2014 was 19,998.
