INTRODUCTION

GFE data is compiled from initial budget forecasts. It does not take account of subsequently published or revised forecasts such as those contained in mid-term revisions issued by any jurisdiction. The purpose of the GFE publication is to assist users making an assessment of each jurisdiction's initial budget on a GFS basis, recognising that the budgets of different jurisdictions are brought down at different times.

This release contains the government financial estimates on a GFS basis for the Operating Statement and Cash Flow Statement relating to the 2005-06 financial year for each jurisdiction. It also includes consolidated results for each level of government, i.e. Commonwealth, State, Local, Multi-jurisdictional, and All levels of government.
