Review of performance - outcome two: Meteorology

Australia benefits from meteorological and related science and services

The Bureau of Meteorology is responsible for achieving this outcome.

On 1 July 2002, the Bureau of Meteorology was established as an executive agency within the Environment and Heritage portfolio and now reports as an agency in its own right. Therefore progress made in 2002-03 towards achieving the portfolios's Outcome Two can be found in the Bureau of Meterology's Annual Report.

The Bureau's 2002-03 financial statements are apportioned between the Department of the Environment and Heritage and Outcome One - Commonwealth Bureau of Meteorology, as the Bureau did not become a prescribed agency under the Financial Management and Accountability Act 1997 until 12 September 2002. Comparisons between 2002-03 and other years may be unreliable.
