This Annual Report reviews the performance of the Department of Defence and the Defence Forces during 2006. As in previous years, performance is reviewed against the objectives set out in the respective Strategy Statements for the period 2005 – 2007. However, this report differs from previous Annual Reports. Firstly, it is a joint report on the performance of the Department of Defence and the Defence Forces. Secondly, the structure of the report is adopted from the Annual Output Statement - performance is reviewed under the four Programme headings set out in the Output Statement.


The Report is set out in six Sections as follows:

1 – Statutory Basis, Organisation Structure, Missions and Roles
This Section outlines the statutory framework within which the Department of Defence and the Defence Forces operate and sets out missions, strategic objectives and roles.

Section 2 - Developing and Maintaining Contingent Capabilities
This Section reports on activities in the areas of training, doctrine, equipment, infrastructure and personnel that support and maintain the development of the contingent military capabilities that are required to deliver on the assigned roles.

Section 3 - On-Island Security and Support
This Section reports on activities in the areas of Aid to the Civil Power (ATCP), Aid to the Civil Authority (ACA), and delivery of services to other Government Departments and agencies.

Section 4 - International Security
This Section reports on activities in support of Government policy in promoting international peace and security and particularly the delivery of International Peace Support Operations (PSO).

Section 5 - Defence Policy, Military Advice and Corporate Services
This Section reports generally on the delivery of policy and military advice, the work of the Office of Emergency Planning and on the corporate services functions.

Section 6 – Financial Details
This Section contains a report on expenditure in 2006 from Votes 36 and 37 together with an extract from the Annual Output Statement. The latter includes projections for 2007 and details of outputs for 2006.


This Report also fulfils the requirements of Section 4(1)(b) of the Public Service (Management) Act, 1997 for an annual report to the Minister on performance against strategic objectives
