The purpose of the Portfolio Additional Estimates Statements (PAES), like that of the Portfolio Budget Statements, is to inform Senators, Members of Parliament and the public of the proposed allocation of resources to Government outcomes by agencies within the Portfolio. However, unlike the Portfolio Budget Statements, the PAES summarise only the changes in resourcing by outcome since the Budget. The PAES include new Measures, summarise the changes by Appropriation Bill, and, where relevant, by Special Appropriation and Special Account. The 2007-08 PAES also cover any significant changes to the Portfolio which may have arisen from the change in Government and the subsequent Administrative Arrangements Orders of 3 December 2007 and 25 January 2008.
