About this Project

With new Ministers announced regularly, this Commonwealth Grants project maps each Minister against the grants made during their tenure in any given position. A new Minister (or occasionally an entire Ministry) has been published on average every eight weeks since the beginning of the 2017-18 financial year (mid 2017). I've created a new dataset with these positions and dates to map both budget data (which operates on a financial year) and Commonwealth the grants that each agency claims are coming out of annual budget appropriations.

Portfolios are the administrative lines drawn between specific agencies and responsible Ministers. Each Portfolio administers specific agencies and those agencies can only spend funding appropriated through Parliament and documented in the Portfolio Budget Statements published on budget night or the MYEFO updates each December or Portfolio Additional Estimate Statements published in February.

Portfolio names change when Administrative Arragement Orders are made by the presiding government. This can change the portfolio to which an agency is attributed or the Minister responsible. The Prime Minister, Scott Morrison announced significant changes to the Portfolios and agencies they administed which came into effect on 1, February 2020.

At launch, only grants published since GrantsConnect went live in January 2018 are included in the data. This means that only one full financial year is covered in the data, with the 2019-20 financial year still unfolding at this point. Commonwealth grants data contains agency and program names as per the budget documents published in budget night. I have integrated these datasets despite the challenges posed by Administrative Arrangement Orders made after budget night. Given the intention of this project is to link grant decisions with resposnible Ministers, queries are based on the approval date in each grant notice as opposed to the publication date.

Publication date is based on start date of the grant and can vary substantially from the approval date. Grants are republished at a later date where variations have been made. If there is a significant time difference between grant approval and variation, different Ministers and governments can be responsible for those variations.

Commonwealth grants data has been published at GrantsConnect since Jan 2018 under the CC By 3.0 licence.

There are several dates in Commonwealth grants data: approval date, publication date, start-end dates and the budget/financial year from which each grant is appropriated. According to Department of Finance media, publication is required by the approving agency on GrantConnect 'no later than twenty-one calendar days after the grant agreement takes effect '.

The date of effect [start date] will depend on the particular arrangement. It can be the date on which a grant agreement is executed or a specified starting date. Where there is no grant agreement, the date of effect can be for example, the date of first payment or the announcement of a successful grantee.
The approval date for reporting purposes is the date that the decision-maker makes a decision to award a grant. Where, for example, negotiating a grant agreement takes some time, there may be a delay between the approval date and the date that the grant award information is published.

Where approval, publication and budget years vary significantly this is likely due to the grant being republished in a later year with a variation or delays in the start of the grant. Variation status and reason is not included in GrantConnect download data but is published at the source (GrantConnect) if you click on the button in the Grants tab.

In order to match with budget data, drill-down at this site is based on the financial year (year of budget appropriations) from which the grant was taken, not the year of grant publication. Budget year can vary from approval and publication years.

PurposeThis project aims to build a systematic theory for the deep analytics of complex and important occurring and non-occurring behaviours. Behaviours that should occur but do not take place, called non-occurring behaviours (NOB), are widely evident but easily overlooked, such as missed important medical treatments. While often occurring behaviours are focused, such NOB may be associated with significant effects such as a threat to health. This project expects to fill the knowledge gaps in representing, analysing and evaluating NOB complexities and impact, with significant benefits for the evidence-based detection, prediction and risk management of covert NOB applications and their important effects.

PurposeThis project aims to overcome persistent narratives of loss and despair with regards to Aboriginal cultures within urban and metropolitan communities today. Storytelling is an essential means of knowledge transmission that ensures the survival of diverse Indigenous knowledge, however colonial storytelling has removed the Stories from Country, their peoples, and the important lessons within them. The project will reciprocally engage with the oral histories of D-harawal Elders that engage with Garuwanga Waduguda (Ancestral Laws) and Narinya Wadugua (Living Laws) to emancipate representations of D-harawal's knowledge from dominant colonial'storytelling narratives that largely speak of assimilation, cultural loss and extinction. The project will assist in revitalisation and respect of Aboriginal identities and knowledge within urban communities.

PurposeThis project aims to integrate elemental stoichiometry, bio-elemental imaging and metabolomics to develop a common -elemental currency- as an entirely new diagnostic of coral fitness. Coral reefs generate invaluable ecosystem services, but are on the verge of global collapse. Efforts to resolve coral traits that promote ecological resilience have been unable to integrate biological and environmental complexities of reef systems into a unifying diagnostic of reef health. Natural extremes will provide the platform to identify key metabolic traits vital for future survival, to establish adaptive elemental signatures that can scale from organism to ecosystem. The project is expected to enhance capacity of marine managers and reef stakeholders to effectively manage and safeguard Australia's reefs and the cultural and ecosystems.

PurposeThis project aims to address the most pressing challenges in the field of super-resolution fluorescence nanoscopies, which underpin a vast range of biomedical imaging and sensing applications. The project will develop fluorescent probes and new imaging schemes that are simultaneously ultra-bright, photostable, biocompatible and do not require the use of high-power lasers that damage samples during image acquisition. This will be achieved by exploiting unique properties of recently-discovered quantum emitters in van der Waals nanomaterials. The project outcomes will yield a new approach to super-resolution imaging, advance understanding of quantum emitters, and develop new techniques for the processing of van der Waals materials. This is expected to have applications in a diverse range of sectors, and enable new markets in nanotechnology and manufacturing of high-performance Australian-made products.

PurposeThis project aims to develop novel technology for non-contact imaging of micro-mechanical properties in cells and tissues to answer fundamental questions of cell mechnanobiology. Based on principles of Brillouin light scattering, the project takes advantage of a radio-frequency lock-in detection scheme. The project will result in a real-time, high'sensitivity, non-contact 3D imaging solution for spatial characterisation of cell's local stiffness and compressibility. This will underpin the advancement of knowledge in the area of cell mechanobiology and the investigation of diseases, where-microscale changes in cell mechanical properties lead to cell dysfunction and apoptosis.

PurposeThis project aims to understand the extent to which a given complex social network can be controlled and how different control mechanisms influence network structure and dynamics. There is a great interest in controlling complex networks including social networks as it might contribute to solving important societal challenges. Using gender imbalance, minority marginalisation, and criminal behaviour as case studies, this project will investigate the direction of networks controllability and mechanisms that would enable alteration of the network in a desired way. This project will have an impact on our current understanding of network's behaviour, and will contribute to solving a range of societal challenges.

PurposeThis project aims to examine architectural and urban change since the 1960s.-Increasingly, urban lives are spent indoors as we move from the concourses of transport interchanges through commercial lobbies, shopping malls and the atriums of hotels and museums. Using new methods for visualising and analysing urban interiors, this project will show how these spaces have changed understandings and experiences of public and private space in cities. Outcomes from the project will aid the professional and public understanding of urban change in Australia.

PurposeThis project aims to determine the basis for plasmid and membrane vesicle generation and DNA transfer at the cellular and molecular level. Recent discovery of plasmid vesicles, which transfer plasmid DNA between host cells using viral capsid-like membrane vesicles, suggests they may be an evolutionary precursor for virus particles. The expected project outcomes include the first substantive characterisation of membrane vesicles in the phylum Euryarchaeota, how plasmid vesicles are generated and transmitted, and new insights into how viruses may evolve. This may lead to new avenues for preventing viral transmission and supporting development of new and improved applications biotechnology and the safe delivery of vaccines or genes in animals and humans.

PurposeThis project aims to develop a novel, high throughput platform for rapidly assessing ciguatoxins. Species of the marine microalgae Gambierdiscus produce ciguatoxins, which accumulate in fish through marine food chains to cause the often debilitating human illness called ciguatera fish poisoning. Ciiguatera fish poisoning is a growing and substantial risk for the $2.2 billion Australian commercial fishing industry. This serious illness is increasingly impacting more southerly areas of Australia due to environmental changes. The outcomes of this project include new knowledge of the risk of ciguatoxins at Australian 'hot spot' sites, extensively field tested methods for detecting Gambierdiscus and ciguatoxins in situ and key data to inform policy to safeguard the seafood industry and consumers.

PurposeDuring pregnancy exposure to pollution or cigarette smoke is associated with the development of respiratory diseases such as asthma and COPD. Why this occurs is not fully known. We have developed models of exposure during pregnancy and found that the offspring have changes to their DNA, known as epigenetic changes, and chronic lung inflammation. We have also found that the offspring develop worse asthma. We now want to use these models to understand exactly which changes occur.

PurposeNeuropathic pain (nerve pain) is a problem for many people with cancer and this pain is usually treated with pain-reliever drugs with the addition of antiseizure and/or antidepressant drugs. However, good quality research is low in determining if using antiseizure or antidepressant is more effective. Therefore, the purpose of this study is to investigate whether two medications, called duloxetine and pregabalin improves pain relief for adults with cancer who have neuropathic pain.

PurposeThis project aims to develop a platform of diamond nanosensors and novel optical tweezers for probing cellular processes with single-molecule resolution, in vivo and over physiologically relevant time scales. In biomedicine, long-term imaging of single-molecules is beyond reach with existing bio-labels. The project combines the superior properties of nanodiamond biomarkers (brightness, stability, small size and non-toxicity), with new optical tweezers which exploit laser trapping of atoms to manipulate nanodiamonds in three-dimensional biological environments. By accessing smaller size and higher force regimes, the platform will improve bio-imaging and bio-manipulation techniques, and potentially advance pathogentracking and early detection of diseases.

PurposeThis project aims to develop a motorway management system that holistically optimises motorway safety, efficiency, and sustainability via intervening the traffic flow dynamics. In the current practice of motorway traffic flow management, safety, efficiency, and sustainability are fundamentally connected but separately managed as they are modeled by distinct methodologies. The new system is based on a proposed traffic flow theory which includes a microscopic model for safety analysis and a derived macroscopic model for efficiency and sustainability analysis. This theory can be used to resolve the above-mentioned long unsettled challenge and significantly improve our motorway performance.

PurposeThis project aims to develop new processing techniques to accelerate the formation of low temperature intermetallic compounds. Many exciting compounds cannot currently be used in technological applications, as they would require extremely protracted heat treatments to produce. The project will aim to determine if formation of these compounds will be accelerated if the precursor alloys are mechanically disordered so that they contain a very high density of defects. This problem will be explored by investigating the formation of prototypical materials including ferromagnetic and precious metal intermetallic compounds from disordered precursors. The project will result in improved strategies for manufacturing intermetallic compounds.

PurposeThis Project aims to uncover volatile gas "fingerprints" of coral reef taxa and how they are diagnostic of healthy reef functioning over space and time. All organisms emit distinct volatile gases via physiological fine-tuning and signalling as their environments change. Whilst coral reef taxa and coral reefs are hotspots for volatile gas emissions, which gases are produced, when and why, is entirely unexplored. This project unites a multidisciplinary team of experts to, for the first time, couple volatile gas assessment, metabolic physiology and functional genomics techniques to transform understanding of how key volatile gases underpin coral resilience to stress and disease, which is essential to improve coral reef ecosystem management.

PurposeThe project aims to reveal basic biology of plasmids found in Acinetobacter baumannii. A. baumannii is a bacterial pathogen that can rapidly acquire resistance to antibiotics, including last-resort antibiotics. In modern strains, acquisition is often mediated by plasmids. On the basis of DNA sequencing data, A. baumannii plasmids are likely to function differently to well'studied plasmids. However, surprisingly little experimental work has been done to evidence this. By combining microbiological and bioinformatics approaches the project expects to generate new knowledge on the mechanisms of replication and transfer of A. baumannii plasmids. This may lead to new targets for strategies to slow and track the spread of antibiotic resistance.

PurposeThe project aims to develop technology enabling lithium to be cost-effectively extracted from brine. Today Australia meets the increasing demand for lithium by mining hardrock lithium, an environmentally damaging activity. An alternative is to source lithium from brine produced as industrial wastewater (in desalination or shale gas production). The main challenge that brine presents to selectively extracting lithium is competing ions. By advancing knowledge of nanomaterials and membrane distillation, the project expects to overcome both this technical challenge and other practical challenges. From wastewater, the anticipated system will produce additional clean water and a valuable commodity that can offset the cost of water treatment.

PurposeThis project aims to develop new methods to support practical sequential decision making under uncertainty. It expects to pave the way for the next generation of sequential decision making uniquely characterised by uncertainty modelling, high sample-efficiency, efficient environment change adaptation, and automatical reward function learning. The expected outcomes will advance machine learning knowledge with a new deep learning schema for data modelling and sequential decision-making knowledge with a novel deep reinforcement learning methodology. These developments have immediate applications in autonomous vehicles, advanced manufacturing, and dynamic pricing, with scientific, economic, and social benefits for Australia and the world.

PurposeThe hippocampus is a part of the brain that is central to learning and memory yet little is known about its role in decision-making. It is the aim of this application to provide the first detailed, causal evidence of hippocampal regulation of decision-making. This is significant because many mental health disorders and dementias that involve decision-making deficits are characterised by hippocampal dysfunction, but any direct link between these factors is unknown. The outcomes of the current grant will provide the first evidence of that link, thus providing deeper understanding of the neurophysiological mechanisms of these disorders, which could eventuate in the creation of more beneficial treatments.

PurposeCells transmit information through molecules. By delivering foreign molecules into cells, such as DNA and proteins, it is possible to engineer and reprogram cells just like a computer. This proposal aims to develop a novel microfluidic device for intracellular delivery. The device will work by exposing cells to rapid thermal shock to generate transient disruptions in cell membranes and thereby enable influx of foreign molecules into cells. To understand how the method can be optimized, the thermodynamic pathway of membrane disruption will be investigated at a single cell level. The methods and insights arising from this project could eventually lead to novel, patentable and lower-cost health technologies.

PurposeFinancial markets are failing to serve society. The recent Royal Commission into Misconduct in Financial Services has highlighted many examples, as have major litigation cases against Australia's banks for market manipulation at enormous scale. Markets are becoming increasingly fragile with the automation of trading and are failing in funding companies, with fewer companies listing on stock markets. This project will investigate how and why financial markets are failing, what are the real effects of these failings, and what should be done about them. The project will develop policy solutions to mitigate the failings, thereby enhancing Australia's economic prosperity, benefitting retirement savings, and improving regulatory efficiency.

PurposeThis project aims to develop lithium-rich cathode materials for a new generation of high-energy lithium-ion batteries. These innovative materials could double the capacity of commercial cathodes, thereby doubling the energy density of lithium-ion batteries. A further increase is anticipated from fundamental insights into anionic redox. Expected outcomes include materials with optimised architecture and chemistry, stabilisation of lithium-rich cathodes, identification of redox mechanism of lithium-rich cathode materials, technologies for producing lithium-rich cathode materials on a large scale and fabrication of new generation high-energy lithium-ion batteries. This project will have benefits especially in the transport and energy sectors.

PurposeWe aim to completely define the cellular and molecular biology of gut and lung M cells for the first time. We will elucidate how they develop, are regulated and function at a molecular level, and how M cells maintain normal gut and lung tissues and induce immune responses to protect against microbial challenges. In the future, the new insights will be essential pre-requisites for the development of mucosal-based interventions and vaccines that protect the gut and lung from infectious and inflammatory issues. The harnessing of effective immune responses to control such challenges, are of enormous fundamental and long'standing biological interest, and are amongst the most important areas of current scientific research.

PurposeOur recent research revealed termites use vibrations to avoid predators/competitors for survival. However, the enabling mechanisms of this amazing ability remain unknown. The project aims at unlocking the secrets of these mechanisms by relating the mechanical properties of termite, legs, antennae and sensing organs (measured with advanced micro measurement techniques) to vibration signatures of ants and termites (extracted using innovative signal processing techniques and nonlinear dynamics). We will develop novel bio-dynamics models that incorporate machine learning. We will test the models' ability to manipulate termites foraging behaviour, with the ultimate objective of developing chemical-free, vibration-based pest control devices.

It is a human protein and so is unlikely to have side effects. We now need to define how it works, optimise delivery to achieve maximum benefit, show efficacy in different forms of asthma, and COPD, and in human cells. This will enable us to perform clinical trials to show that it is effective in human patients.

Recruiting
Rosie began her work into government accountability by creating the first ever complete line item dataset of the Commonwealth budget. Eight years and multiple projects later, Rosie now opens the door to other researchers, both to the underlying data powering multiple transparency projects and to provide a platform for people to recruit to build their own transparency projects.

I'd like a volunteer to check out the Senate & HoR Commonwealth pecuniary interests registers to assess whether or not either or both are able to be scraped. This is a suitable task for someone with scraping skills and it would be good if you have some familiarity with the pecuniary interests dataset. I am evaluating whether or not I can use volunteers to keep the pecuniary interests datasets updated as to this point it has been a manual process. You don't have to actually write the scraper just find out whether it can be done and the schema of what can be scraped.

I’ve worked with Rosie Williams on budget data transparency since November 2013. Rosie has developed her project into the best government data transparency initiative I know... continually updated and improved to make underlying data intelligible and to focus on key aspects for analysis. My interest has particularly been on the transparency of federal budget data.

I launched the domain AusGov.info at Linux Conference Australia in January 2018, however this work is the result of years devoted to programming and transparency work beginning in 2012 and progressively expanded and improved upon over the intervening years.
