Personnel Headcount

(Question No. 679)


Ms Brodtmann asked the Assistant Minister for Defence, in writing on, 4 December 2014:

For each electoral division as at 30 September 2014, and as contained in the final pay figures for the July to September 2014 quarter within the Defence People Group of the Department of Defence, 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 September 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 20,799, of which 54 employees were on fixed-term contracts and 1,398 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 (i.e. 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 at payday 25 September 2014 was 19,530.
