Department of Education, Youth and Family Services

(Question No 290)

Mr Humphries asked the Minister for Education, Youth and Family Services, upon notice, on 25 September 2002:

In 2002-03 Budget Paper No., estimates are provided for the impact of indexation for 2002-03 and future years for Payment for Expenses on behalf of the Territory within the Department of Education, Youth and Family Services:

(1) On what basis have the estimates for revised indexation parameters for this category of expenditure for the department been prepared.

(2) What is the reason for the indexation parameter for this category of expenditure for the department increasing by around 930 percent to $3.8 million between 2004-05 and 2005-06.

Mr Corbell: The answer to Mr Humphries' question is:

(1) Agency forward estimates appropriations generally include indexation at CPI (2.5% for forward estimates) for grant payments, concessions and Community Service Obligation payments. Effective 1 July 2002, the indexation component for concessions and Community Service Obligation had been transferred to Department of Disability, Housing and Community Services with its functions.

(2) The large increase in the final and new outyear in the 2002-2003 Budget (2005-06) represents a full indexation adjustment of 2.5% from 2004-05. Previous outyears already contain an indexation estimate.
