       AGENCY OVERVIEW AND APPROPRIATIONS
                    SUMMARY
AGENCY OVERVIEW

The Australian Nuclear Science and Technology Organisation (ANSTO) is Australia’s
national nuclear organisation and the centre of Australian nuclear expertise. The role
of ANSTO includes:

      providing scientific and technical advice for and on behalf of government on
       the nuclear fuel cycle, including reactor operations, reactor safety and the
       safeguarding of nuclear material;
      making significant contributions to international research and development in
       selected nuclear fields commensurate with Australia’s nuclear non-proliferation
       and other nuclear fuel cycle interests;
      promoting appropriate nuclear-related guidelines and practices nationally and
       internationally;
      operating national nuclear facilities and associated infrastructure in Australia
       and overseas for the benefit of the Australian research and development
       community and industry;
      enhancing and improving the efficiency and effectiveness of those facilities in
       order to yield high quality research, products and services;
      applying nuclear-based techniques in research projects that are integral to
       national and international programs on understanding natural processes and
       the impact of human activities on the environment;
      refining, developing and implementing new approaches to safely immobilise
       and dispose of radioactive waste and to minimise the environmental impact of
       the nuclear and mining industries;
      advising government on radioactive waste management, including the
       environmental impact of uranium mining;
      contributing to the development of critical technologies aimed at enhancing
       the global competitiveness and sustainability of those Australian industry
       sectors that can benefit through the application of nuclear science and
       technology and ANSTO’s unique mix of technical capabilities; and
      supplying internationally competitive radiopharmaceuticals and other
       radioisotopes for medical, industrial and environmental use in Australia and for
       export.

ANSTO acts in partnership with major stakeholder groupings to service the needs of
government, industry and the general public, and encourages joint efforts with the
research community in applications where nuclear science and technology solutions
can be of benefit.

SECTION 11 – ANSTO OVERVIEW

APPROPRIATIONS

The total appropriation for Outcomes 2 and 3 forANSTO in the 2003-04 Budget is
$120.621 million.

Table 11.1, on the following page, shows the total appropriation for ANSTO for
2003-04 for its three outcomes by price of outputs. There are no administered
appropriations for ANSTO.

ADMINISTERED CAPITAL AND DEPARTMENTAL EQUITY INJECTIONS AND
LOANS

In 2003-04 ANSTO will receive an equity injection of $79.210 million to fund the
construction of a replacement research reactor and $5.480 million to upgrade
security at Lucas Heights. The expenditure of $84.690 million is shown in the Capital
Budget Statement (see Table 13.4).

SECTION 12 – ANSTO OUTCOMES AND OUTPUTS

OUTCOME 1 – DESCRIPTION

Nuclear-based Infrastructure

Through ANSTO, the Government is providing access to core nuclear-based facilities
in Australia and overseas for the benefit of industry and the Australian research and
development community. The major facility access is to a nuclear research reactor
for strategic, industrial, environmental and research purposes, and manufacture of
nuclear medicines and other forms of radioisotopes.

Appropriations for Outcome 1 cover the acquisition of a replacement research reactor
in order to provide strategic nuclear expertise, accommodate a range of advanced
scientific and industrial applications and to secure a sufficient supply of radioisotopes
for health care and industrial applications over the next 40 to 50 years. It also covers
funding for ANSTO’s contract management component for the project.

The Government will provide $11.1 million over the next two years to enhance the
security of the Australian Nuclear Science and Technology Organisation's main
entrance.

Additional security devices will also be installed across the facility, including the site
of the current research reactor. This initiative will significantly enhance security as a
response to the current heightened security environment.

OUTCOME 3 – CONTRIBUTION OF OUTPUTS

ANSTO has developed a value-driven framework to ensure that delivery of specified
outputs meets or exceeds anticipated requirements of customers, and opens up
opportunities for the further generation of new knowledge, and the creation of new
knowledge-based enterprises, industries, products and services for Australia. All
ANSTO’s activities are implemented as projects and are designed to deliver the
objectives of a core business area. Five of these core business areas have objectives
that address the outputs in this outcome. Individual performance indicators measure
project achievements and project results are aggregated into output categories.

Justification for the outputs chosen to achieve Outcome 3 is described in Table
12.3.2. The Table provides information on the strategies chosen to deliver
Outcome 3, and shows the links between the outputs and the Outcomes. The Table
lists the performance information that ANSTO will use to assess the level of its
achievement of Outcome 3 during 2003-04.

Table 12.3.2: Performance information for Outcome 3

Effectiveness – Overall achievement of the outcome –
(Measures, indicators and targets used as appropriate)

ANSTO operates within a set of performance indicators agreed with Government to
provide an insight into its overall effectiveness and success in achieving the science
and technology outcome. Performance indicators are defined as part of the
triennium funding agreement that ANSTO has with the Department of Education,
Science and Training, and the Department of Finance and Administration. ANSTO
will also be reporting on performance indicators for National Research Priorities.

ANSTO reports against those indicators in its Annual Report.

ANSTO employs rigorous business planning and project approval processes when
deciding what activities it will undertake in any given year. Factors considered when
assessing a project proposal include ANSTO’s charter as defined in the Australian
Nuclear Science and Technology Organisation Act 1987; its Corporate Vision and
Mission; its Strategic Plan; and its Business Guidelines with procedures to assess the
scientific and business cases for undertaking a project.

ANSTO is also advised on the relevance and quality of ANSTO-led research by an
external Technical Advisory Committee reporting to its Board. The Committee
consists of science and technology leaders from the academic, industrial and
scientific communities.



                                           195
SECTION 12 – ANSTO OUTCOMES AND OUTPUTS

The result of the combination of ANSTO’s planning process and the external advice
provided by the Technical Advisory Committee, is a portfolio of projects published in
the ANSTO Operational Plan, whereby ANSTO believes it can maximise its potential
to deliver socio-economic benefits to Australia with the resources it has available.
Performance in terms of producing outputs by specified target dates for each activity
and the achievement of outputs is monitored through quarterly reporting and annual
project reviews.

EVALUATIONS

The effectiveness of ANSTO in delivering Government outcomes is illustrated in the
2001-2002 ANSTO Annual Report, which includes reports against performance
indicators. These indicators supplement reports of the achievements of specific
research projects, which represent the most direct outcomes of ANSTO’s scientific
and technological activities in its core business areas.
