MS GALLAGHER: As required by the Financial Management Act, I table copies of expenditure authorisations and the final charge against the 2009-10 Treasurer’s advance. Section 18 of the act allows the Treasurer to authorise expenditure from the Treasurer’s advance. Section 18A of the act requires that within three sitting days after the authorisation is given the Treasurer present to the Assembly a copy of the authorisation, a statement of the reasons for giving it and a summary of the total expenditure authorised under section 18 for the financial year.

Initially, I would like to highlight that the unspent balance of the Treasurer’s advance this year is $13.571 million. This saving demonstrates the government’s ability to control costs and our strong track record on financial management. These funds will be returned to the budget as a saving.

This package contains 13 instruments signed under section 18 of the act which comprise $6.902 million for the Department of Territory and Municipal Services, comprising $2.1 million to maintain service levels in ACTION; $1.1 million for personal injury proceedings against ACTION relating to a motor vehicle accident which predated the formation of the ACT Insurance Authority; $2.9 million to maintain service levels across the parks, conservation and land portfolio; $150,000 for a performance fee agreement with the AFL; $510,000 associated with the management of the Tuggeranong Lakeside Leisure Centre; and $150,000 to maintain service levels in ACT libraries.

There is $307,000 for the Department of Justice and Community Safety, comprising $51,000 for higher than anticipated legal expenses on behalf of the territory and $256,000 for costs associated with the implementation of the national emergency warning system.
