Defence One

Defence One, the new Human Resource and Payroll System for Defence went live on the 7 August 2017.

Release 1a brought the Australian Defence Force (ADF) and Australian Public Service (APS) into a single system, Defence One. This involved significant changes in terminology, how ADF members apply for absences and allowances and how applications are approved and processed.

With the implementation of Defence One, some changes to people policies will apply.

Categorisation changes
