claims exist or where grants remain unpaid pending recipients’ milestones being met. Significant rollovers impacting recurrent appropriation include $3.9 million for the restructure fund and $1.7 million for the capital improvements program.

Significant capital injection rollovers include:

• $3.2 million for the cost of purchasing the linear accelerator in 2007-08 for which ACT Health has not drawn appropriation;

• $2.8 million for CIT’s commonwealth-funded projects, including the installation of a new wireless infrastructure and student services hub. These projects were delayed due to working around school teaching periods and sourcing additional information to inform tender processes;

• $2.5 million for ESA’s vehicle replacement program, which has experienced delays primarily due to finalising vehicle specifications and capacity constraints with manufacturers of specialist vehicles;

• $2.4 million for the bus replacement program, which was delayed due to technical build issues experienced by the supplier;

• $5 million for stage 1 of the airport roads upgrade due to delays resulting from legal action brought before the Administrative Appeals Tribunal;

• $1.9 million for the Lanyon Drive upgrade, which was delayed due to protracted negotiations with the New South Wales Roads and Traffic Authority and the Queanbeyan City Council regarding the scope of the work, planning requirements and the method of delivery; and

• $3.5 million for the Wilbow and Easty Streets infrastructure project in the Woden Town Centre, which was delayed due to planning and approval processes.

Details relating to these and all remaining rollovers are provided for in the instruments. I commend the paper to the Assembly.
