ABARES profile and work program 2015-16

​​​​​​​Our work program for 2015–16 sets out the priorities and activities for ABARES for the year. It reflects the collaborative nature of our work in supporting the Department of Agriculture and Water Resources divisions to meet policy, program and business outcomes as outlined in the Portfolio​​ Budget Statement 2015–16 and of our activities across the department's Resources, Productivity and Markets Framework.

Our work program also encompasses activities we undertake for other Commonwealth departments and agencies and private sector stakeholders to aid their decision making.

ABARES funding comprises approximately 80 per cent direct department appropriation and administered revenue with the balance received in earned revenue from the department's divisions, its portfolio agencies, other government departments and the private sector.
