Financial Management Act, pursuant to section 16, Instrument directing a transfer of appropriations from the Department of Territory and Municipal Services to the Chief Minister's Department, including a statement of reasons, dated 12 April 2011.

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

Leave granted.

MS GALLAGHER: As required by the Financial Management Act 1996, I hereby table an instrument issued under section 16 of the act. Subsections 16(1) and (2) of the FMA allow the Treasurer to authorise the transfer of appropriation for a service or a function to another entity following a change in responsibility for that service or function. Section 16(3) of the FMA requires that within three sitting days after that authorisation is given the Treasurer must present a copy of the direction and associated statement of reasons to the Legislative Assembly.

Pursuant to the administrative arrangement, effective 1 July 2010, this instrument facilitates a transfer of $2.301 million in appropriations associated with the functions and services provided through the heritage unit from the Department of Territory and Municipal Services to the Chief Minister's Department. This transfer is budget neutral, and I commend the instrument to the Assembly.

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 16B, Instrument authorising the rollover of undisbursed appropriation of the Department of Territory and Municipal Services including a statement of reasons, dated 6 April 2011.

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

Leave granted.

MS GALLAGHER: Section 16B of the Financial Management Act, rollover of undisbursed appropriations, allows for appropriations to be preserved from one financial year to the next, as outlined in instruments signed by me as Treasurer. As required by the act, I table a copy of a recent authorisation made to rollover undisbursed appropriation from 2009-10 to 2010-11. This package includes one instrument signed under section 16B.

The appropriation being rolled over was not dispersed during 2009-10 and is still required in 2010-11 for the completion of the projects identified in the instrument.
