Senator Chris Evans asked the Minister for Defence, upon notice, on 15 June 2004:

(1) What annual funding has the Commonwealth provided to the Australian Defence Force Academy (ADFA) in each of the past 5 financial years.

(2) What is the projected Commonwealth budget allocation for ADFA for the 2004-05, 2005-06, 2006-07, and 2007-08 financial years.


Senator Hill (Minister for Defence) —The answer to the honourable senator's question is as follows:

(1) The costs provided are direct operating expenditure. They do not include accrual overheads such as compensation, ADF housing, ADF health and ADF removals. The following figures are, therefore, estimates derived from a snapshot of total accrual expenses in 2002-03. They are based on a nominal increase of 3% per annum.

1999-2000 - $82.2m

2000-01 - $84.7m

2001-02 - $87.3m

2002-03 - $90.0m

2003-04 - $70.0m

Note 1: The decrease in 2003-04 is attributable to the end of the capital use charge. The capital use charge only applied up to 2002-03 and, therefore, is not included in subsequent years.

(2) 2004-05 - $72.1m

2005-06 - $74.3m

2006-07 - $76.5m

2007-08 - $78.8m
