# Any discrepancies in totals are due to rounding of partial ASL.

* Not disclosed

(a) This table includes estimates of ASL provided by general government sector agencies. ASL figures reflect the average number of employees receiving salary or wages over the financial year, with adjustments for casual and part time staff to show the full‑time equivalent. It also includes uniformed staff and overseas personnel. The ASL figures exclude contractors. In the 2012‑13 Budget, the ASL figures included contractors for the Department of Defence (Defence) and Defence Materiel Organisation (DMO). The Defence and DMO contractor numbers are reported in note (i) for comparison purposes.

(b) The projected decrease of 230 between 2012‑13 and 2013‑14 reflects alignment of staffing to operate within the allocated budget.

(c) Core ongoing ASL will decrease by 47, from 1,263 in 2012‑13 to 1,216 in 2013‑14. However the total ASL in 2013‑14 will increase as a result of 93 ASL for the Royal Commission Into Institutional Responses to Child Sexual Abuse, 65 ASL for the Defence Abuse Response Task Force, and 18 ASL for special event programs (Asian Football Cup (5), Cricket World Cup (6), and G20 Security Arrangements (7)).

(d) The projected decrease of 54 between 2012‑13 and 2013‑14 reflects alignment of staffing to operate within the allocated budget.

(e) The projected decrease of 120 between 2012‑13 and 2013‑14 reflects alignment of staffing to operate within the allocated budget.

(f) Staff reductions in the Federal Circuit Court of Australia (formerly Federal Magistrates Court of Australia) and subsequent increases in the Family Court and Federal Circuit Court of Australia (formerly the Family Court of Australia) are a result of the merger of these entities. The 2012‑13 ASL is presented under the former entities.

(g) The projected decrease of 77 between 2012‑13 and 2013‑14 reflects alignment of staffing to operate within the allocated budget.

(h) As a result of Machinery of Government changes, the Department of Climate Change and Energy Efficiency (DCCEE) ceased to exist on 26 March 2013. The ASL in 2012‑13 is an estimate for the time DCCEE was in operation (1 July 2012 to 25 March 2013). The ASL for the remainder of the year and the full year impact for 2013‑14 are included in the figures for the Department of Industry, Innovation, Climate Change, Science, Research and Tertiary Education, and the Department of Resources, Energy and Tourism. Also see (p) and (u).

(i) The ASL figures exclude contractors. Contractor numbers for Defence is 350 in 2012‑13 and projected to be 445 in 2013‑14, and DMO is 27 in 2012‑13 and projected to be 48 in 2013‑14.

(j) The combined decrease in projected ASL for Defence and DMO (excluding contractors) of 327 between 2012‑13 and 2013‑14 is primarily due to the second tranche of the reduction of 1,000 ASL over two years announced in the 2012‑13 Budget.

(k) The projected increase of 1,524 between 2012‑13 and 2013‑14 reflects the increase to achieve the budgeted workforce in 2013‑14 after a period of workforce shortfalls.

(l) The projected increase of 483 between 2012‑13 and 2013‑14 reflects planned increased usage of Reservists.

(m) The projected increase of 358 between 2012‑13 and 2013‑14 is largely attributable to DisabilityCare Australia measures.

(n) The projected decrease of 139 between 2012‑13 and 2013‑14 reflects alignment of staffing to operate within the allocated budget.

(o) The projected decrease of 1,341 between 2012‑13 and 2013‑14 reflects alignment of staffing to operate within the allocated budget and efficiencies achieved from the Service Delivery Reform as announced in the 2011‑12 Budget.

(p) The projected increase of 181 between 2012‑13 and 2013‑14 includes the impact of the staff transferred from the former Department of Climate Change and Energy Efficiency (DCCEE) as a result of Machinery of Government changes on 25 March 2013. The ASL for 2012‑13 includes only the part year impact (from 26 March 2013 to 30 June 2013) of the ASL that transferred from the former DCCEE (106 ASL). Also see (h).

(q) The projected decrease of 165 between 2012‑13 and 2013‑14 reflects alignment of staffing to operate within the allocated budget.

(r) The Clean Energy Finance Corporation (CEFC) was established in August 2012, under the Clean Energy Finance Corporation Act 2012. Low Carbon Australia Limited (LCAL) and the CEFC are merging, with the majority of LCAL staff having accepted positions with the CEFC. LCAL is expected to have no staff by 30 June 2013.

(s) The projected increase of 73 between 2012‑13 and 2013‑14 largely reflects hosting the Group of 20 (see the 2012‑13 Budget measure, Australia to host the Group of 20 in 2014).

(t) The National Portrait Gallery of Australia (NPGA) will commence operations as a separate agency on 1 July 2013. The NPGA was previously included in the ASL of the Department of Regional Australia, Local Government, Arts and Sport.

(u) The projected increase of 139 between 2012‑13 and 2013‑14 includes the impact of the staff transferred from the former Department of Climate Change and Energy Efficiency (DCCEE) as a result of Machinery of Government changes on 25 March 2013. The ASL for 2012‑13 includes only the part year impact (from 26 March 2013 to 30 June 2013) of the ASL that transferred from the former DCCEE (55 ASL). Also see (h).

(v) The projected decrease of 140 between 2012‑13 and 2013‑14 reflects alignment of staffing to operate within the allocated budget.

(w) The projected decrease of 236 between 2012‑13 and 2013‑14 relates to the cyclical nature of activities for the Census as well as the efficiency dividend and other savings measures.

(x) The projected increase of 508 between 2012‑13 and 2013‑14 represents the impact of new measures announced in both the 2012‑13 MYEFO and the 2013‑14 Budget with the additional ASL mostly to support additional revenue compliance measures.
