  1. What major accruals are expected in the last 5 months of the financial year,
  2. given that the YTD result has seen a $13m turnaround, but the end of year

    projection has been increased to $151.7m.

  3. What other major events will cause the increase in the operating result.
  4. What is the abnormal item, or what are the abnormal items, expected to be

that cause the projections of $4.1 52m by the end of the financial year.

Ms Carnell

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

(1) As noted in agency Ownership Agreements and Statements of Intent, agencies are required to ensure the availability to the Treasurer of information in respect of the previous calendar month in the required form, including an operating statement, statement of financial position, cashflow statement, reconciliations, and explanations for material variations.

Financial statements for The Canberra Hospital, CanDeliver, InTACT, Office of Asset

Management and Totalcare, are provided at Attachment A. Notes to and forming part of

the financial accounts have not been provided as full financial statement notes are not

required to be provided or prepared by agencies on a monthly basis. These are prepared

on a annual basis for annual reporting purposes or as required by each agency for

internal departmental reporting.

(2a) There are no major accruals expected to occur in the last 5 months of the financial year. It is recognised that an improvement has occurred to date. This is largely due to increased taxation and Commonwealth grants revenue above their budgeted position.
