Papers and statements by minister
MS GALLAGHER (Molonglo—Treasurer, Minister for Health, Minister for Community Services and Minister for Women): 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 Disability, Housing and Community Services, including a statement of reasons, dated 30 September 2009.
I seek leave to make a short statement in relation to the paper.
MS GALLAGHER: Section 16B of the Financial Management Act rollover of undisbursed appropriation allows for appropriations to be preserved from one financial year to the next, as outlined in an instrument signed by me as Treasurer. As required by the act, I table a copy of a recent authorisation made to roll over undisbursed appropriation from 2008-09 to 2009-10. This package includes one instrument signed under section 16B.
The appropriation being rolled over was not spent during 2008-09 and is still required in 2009-10 for the completion of the projects identified in the instrument. The instrument authorises a total of $5.719 million in rollovers for the Department of Disability, Housing and Community Services; $1.462 million of recurrent appropriations and $4.257 million of capital appropriations.
These rollovers have been made as the appropriation clearly relates to project funds or where commitments have been entered into but the related cash not yet required or expended during the year of appropriation—for example, where the capital works projects were initiatives for which timing of delivery has changed or been delayed or where an outstanding contractual or pending claim exists or where there are delays in implementing budget recurrent initiatives.
The recurrent appropriation rollovers include the working with vulnerable people check initiative, the supported accommodation assistance program, the business and
