Legislative Assembly for the ACT: 2011 Week 05 Hansard (Thursday, 5 May 2011) . . Page.. 1971 ..
The instrument authorises a total of $23.044 million in appropriation rollovers for the Department of Territory and Municipal Services, including $1.547 million in net cost of outputs and $21.497 million of capital injection.
These rollovers have been made as the appropriation clearly relates to projects or funds where commitments have been entered into but the related cash was not required or expended during the year of appropriation, for example, when capital works projects or initiatives for which the timing of delivery has changed, where outstanding contractual or pending claims exist or where there are delays in implementing budgeted recurrent initiatives. The specific details regarding these rollovers are included in the instrument, and I commend the paper to the Assembly.
Financial Management Act—instrument
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 Education and Training including a statement of reasons, dated 12 April 2011.
I ask leave to make a statement in relation to the paper.
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 the instrument 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 disbursed during 2009-10 and is still required in 2010-11 for the completion of the projects identified in the instrument.
The instrument authorises a total of $26.839 million in rollovers for the Department of Education and Training, $1.778 million in net cost of outputs, $1.058 million in payments on behalf of the territory, and $24.003 million of departmental capital injection appropriations. These rollovers have been made as the appropriation clearly 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 work projects or initiatives for which timing of delivery has changed or been delayed, where outstanding contractual pending claims exist or where there are delays in implementing budgeted recurring initiatives.
The rollover of net cost of outputs include $1.015 million for national partnership literacy and numeracy, $283,000 for national partnership youth attainment and
