The Government’s Defence outcome is "the defence of Australia and its national interests". This reflects Australia’s defence requirements in a complex strategic environment, and the reality that activities inimical to Australian security and national interests may not involve the use of armed force.
Further information on Defence’s outcome and outputs is contained in the Minister for Defence’s 2001-02 Portfolio Budget Statements (see Bibliography).
