Abstract:

This paper is the second submission by the Department of Defence and Australian Defence Force to the Joint Committee on Foreign Affairs, Defence and Trade on separation rates in the Australian Defence Force. The first submission provided tables of statistics and associated graphs for the last 10 years which described separation rates for the ADF as a whole and the three Services. The analysis then considered major groupings of personnel Officers and Other Ranks, Males and Females, Cadets and Trainees, Pension Eligible and Pension Ineligible. The contribution to separation statistics of Reservists leaving Full-Time Duty and personnel on temporary leave was also included. The analysis was based on the reported Defence Force Employment Statistics and information provided by the Service Offices. This second submission addresses the effects of present levels of wastage on the capability of the ADF to fulfill its role in an effective manner, considers measures that may reduce this wastage when such measures are warranted or desirable and assesses the relative effectiveness of those proposed measures.
