The 2015-16 Budget, including related papers such as the Portfolio Additional Estimates Statements (PAES), is officially available at http://www.budget.gov.au.
The PAES inform the parliament of changes to the proposed allocation of resources since the 2015-16 Budget. The PAES, annual Appropriation Bills (Nos. 3 and 4) and Appropriation (Parliamentary Departments) Bill (No. 2) are tabled in the parliament usually in mid-February each year.
The annual Appropriation Bills (Nos. 3 and 4) and Appropriation (Parliamentary Departments) Bill (No. 2) require that the PBS and PAES be taken into account when interpreting the appropriated items in the Schedules.
Please note that not all portfolios prepare a PAES. Only those entities the Government will be seeking additional funding for through Appropriation Bills (Nos. 3 and 4) are required to produce a PAES. The PAES incorporate measures announced since the 2015-16 Budget, including those announced in the Mid-Year Economic and Fiscal Outlook (MYEFO).
The data for the 2015-16 PAES has been made available to assist those who wish to analyse the financial information published in the PAES. Footnotes have also been included as published in the files to assist in interpreting the data.
