ABARES profile and work program 2013-14

​Our work program for 2013–14 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 (the department) divisions to meet policy, program and business outcomes as outlined in the Portfolio Budget Statement 2013–14 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 50 per cent direct Department of Agriculture appropriation with the balance received in earned revenue from the department's divisions, its portfolio agencies, other government departments and the private sector.
