Defence: Civilian Staff

(Question No. 240)


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

In respect of civilian staff in the Minister's department (including the Defence Materiel Organisation) as at 30 June 2014, (a) what was the (i) headcount, and (ii) breakdown of the headcount, by division, and (b) how many were (i) on fixed term contracts, (ii) part-time, (iii) based in the Australian Capital Territory (ACT), and (iv) based outside the ACT, and where.


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

(a) and (b) The civilian staff headcount and breakdown by State and Defence Group is provided in the table 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.
