Legislative Assembly for the ACT: 2010 Week 12 Hansard (28 October) . . Page.. 5302..
financial year to the next, as outlined in an instrument signed by myself as Treasurer. As required by the act, I table a copy of a recent authorisation made to roll over undisbursed appropriation. This package includes one instrument signed under section 16B. The appropriation being rolled over was not spent during 2009-10 and is still required in 2010-11 for the completion of projects identified in the instrument. The instrument authorises a total of $4.797 million in rollovers for the Department of Disability, Housing and Community Services—$220,000 of recurrent appropriation, and $4.577 million of capital injection.
These rollovers have been made as the appropriation clearly relates to project funds or where commitments have been entered into but the related cash has not yet been required or expended during the year of appropriation—for example, where capital works projects or initiatives in which the timing of delivery has changed or been delayed or where outstanding contractual or pending claims exist or where there are delays in implementing budgeted recurrent initiatives.
Recurrent appropriation rollovers include $120,000 for the multicultural radio grants program and $100,000 for the business and industrial relations support for community organisations program. The capital injection rollovers include $4.007 million for the continuation and completion of the establishment of regional community facilities and neighbourhood halls project and $353,000 for costs associated with the construction of the third child and family centre. This project is funded by the commonwealth under a national partnership agreement and details relating to these and other rollovers are provided in the instrument. I commend the paper to the Assembly.
