Summary In recent times, the Department of Defence has come under close scrutiny due to a range of problems. Issues have included faltering multi-billion dollar acquisition projects, uncertain financial management, and inability to maintain current capabilities such as the Collins-class submarines and the amphibious fleet. The Special Report was prepared to help understand why problems like this arise and suggest how they might be fixed. This report contains a detailed examination of the control and administration of Defence. Topics covered include: civil-military relations, Defence's structure and processes, accountability and governance, transparency and oversight, and Defence reform
