Legislative Assembly for the ACT: 2008 Week 4 Hansard (10 April) . . Page.. 1358..
Mr Stanhope: The answer to the member's question is as follows:
(1) The ACT adopted accrual AAS budgeting and reporting in 1996-97, with the first full year of accrual reporting being 1997-98. Prior to this, the ACT reported on a cash basis, during which time the available data is not directly comparable to the revenue and expense data being sought. Similarly, the ACT adopted accrual GFS reporting in 2000-01. Before this date, the GFS framework was cash.
Attachment A provides budgeted revenues and expenses from 1996-97 to 2010-11 for AAS and from 2000-01 to 2010-11 for GFS.
Attachment B provides the budgeted cash GFS data for 1989-90 to 1999-2000.
(2) Attachment C provides the actual AAS and GFS revenues and expenses from the adoption of accrual accounting for the respective reporting frameworks (AAS from 1996-97 to 2006-07, and GFS from 2000-01 to 2006-07).
Attachment D provides the actual GFS cash receipts and payments data for 1989-90 to 1999-2000.
