Portfolio Supplementary Estimates Statements

The purpose of the Portfolio Supplementary Estimates Statements (PSES) is to inform senators and members of parliament and the public of the proposed allocation of supplementary appropriations to Government outcomes by agencies within the relevant portfolio.

The PSES are declared by the relevant supplementary Appropriations Bills to be a ‘relevant document’ to the interpretation of the Bill according to section 15AB of the Acts Interpretation Act 1901.

The PSES are focused on explaining the supplementary estimates appropriations.

Timing: If applicable, after Budget and prior to the Mid-Year Economic and Fiscal Outlook.
