Finance—capital funding (Question No 1701)

Mr Seselja asked the Treasurer, upon notice, on 16 August 2011:

(1) What is the current approach taken by the ACT Treasury to raise capital funding.

(2) What portion of capital funding identified in the Budget for the years 2011-12 to 2014 -15 is funded by debt.

Mr Barr: The answer to the member's question is as follows:

(1) The general approach taken by ACT Treasury involves consideration of:

* the purpose or the use of the financing;

* the cost of capital, funding availability, underlying risks, and cash flow effects of alternative financing structures

* potential impact on key financial analysis ratios, the credit rating and overall budget capacity to service new borrowings; and

* analysis of prevailing outstanding debt and potential impact on the existing debt portfolio.

(2) The 2011 12 Budget anticipates new General Government Sector (GGS) borrowings for capital of $350 million in 2011-12 and a further $300 million in 2012-13. The total value of the Capital Works Program included in the 2011 12 Budget was $2.292 billion (including ICT and P&E). The portion of the program funded by debt is around 28 per cent.
