Financial Management Act—instruments

Paper and statement by minister

MS GALLAGHER (Molonglo-Deputy Chief Minister, Treasurer, Minister for Health and Minister for Industrial Relations): For the information of members, I present the following paper:

Financial Management Act, pursuant to section 15—Instrument directing a transfer of funds between output classes within the Chief Minister's Department, including a statement of reasons, dated 30 June 2010.

I ask leave to make a statement in relation to the paper.

Leave granted.

MS GALLAGHER: As required by the Financial Management Act, I hereby table an instrument issued under section 15 of the act. Section 15(1) of the Financial Management Act states that the executive may, in writing, direct that funds within the same appropriation that are allocated for the provision of different classes of outputs be reallocated in relation to those classes of outputs. The Chief Minister's Department is seeking to transfer GPO of $1.709 million between output classes, reflecting the reallocation of overhead costs across the department. I commend the instrument to the Assembly.

Financial Management Act—instrument

Paper and statement by minister

MS GALLAGHER (Molonglo-Deputy Chief Minister, Treasurer, Minister for Health and Minister for Industrial Relations) (3.32): For the information of members, I present the following paper:

Financial Management Act, pursuant to section 18A—Statement of authorisation of expenditure from the Treasurer's Advance in 2009-2010.

I ask leave to make a statement in relation to the paper.

Leave granted.

MS GALLAGHER: The Financial Management Act requires that I table a summary of final expenditure under section 18 of the act—a lesson I will not forget. Section 18A(3) of the FMA requires that, where the Treasurer has authorised expenditure under section 18, within three sitting days after the end of the financial year, the Treasurer must present to the Legislative Assembly a summary of the total expenditure authorised for that financial year.

The Appropriation Act 2009-10 provided $36.8 million for the Treasurer's advance. The final expenditure against the Treasurer's advance for 2009-10 was $23.2 million, leaving a balance of $13.6 million to return to the 2009-10 budget. Details of each payment are outlined in the summary. I commend the paper to the Assembly.
