Summary On 15 October 1996, the Minister for Defence established the Defence Efficiency Review with terms of reference to: (a) identify key management processes across the defence program structure, (b) assess the efficiency and effectiveness of current management and financial processes, (c) make recommendations for reforming defence management and financial processes to ensure that they are carried out in the most efficient and effective manner possible; eliminate duplication between and within defence programs; take a rigourous approach to defining 'core' and 'non-core' business; make appropriate use of commercialisation options; reflect, where appropriate, modern business practices; enhance combat capabilities; and produce the most efficient and effective defence force possible within current budgetary restraints. This volume is published as the addendum to the report. It comprises papers developed by the Secretariat, building on the work of the sub-review teams
