Legislative Assembly for the ACT: 2012 Week 5 Hansard (3 May) . . Page.. 1971..
Section 16B of the Financial Management Act 1996, "rollover of undisbursed appropriation", allows for appropriations to be preserved from one financial year to the next. This package includes three instruments authorised under section 16B of the act. The appropriations being rolled over were not spent during the fiscal year 2010-11 and are still required in 2011-12 for the completion of the projects.
The first instrument authorises total rollovers for the Territory and Municipal Services Directorate of $4.321 million, including $1.866 million in net cost of outputs and $17.247 million in controlled capital injection offset by the acceleration of 26 capital projects totalling $14.792 million.
The second instrument authorises a total of $17.528 million in rollovers from the Education and Training Directorate, comprising $4.210 million in net cost of outputs, $934,000 for payments on behalf of the territory and $12.384 million of controlled capital injection appropriations.
The third instrument authorises a total of $5.906 million in rollovers for the Justice and Community Safety Directorate, comprising $224,000 in net cost of outputs, $5.460 million of controlled capital injection and $222,000 of territorial capital injection.
These rollovers have been made as the appropriation relates to project funds 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 for which the timing of delivery has changed or been delayed, where outstanding contractual and pending claims exist, or where there are delays in implementing budgeted recurrent initiatives.
Further details of these instruments can be found in each individual instrument that I have tabled this afternoon. I commend the instruments to the Assembly.
