Financial Management Act, pursuant to section 16B—Instrument authorising the rollover of undisbursed appropriation of the Department of the Environment, Climate Change, Energy and Water, including a statement of reasons, dated 20 October 2009.

The appropriation being rolled over was not spent during 2008-09 and is still required for 2009-10 for the completion of the projects identified in the instrument.
The instrument authorises a total of $1.617 million in rollovers for the Department of the Environment, Climate Change, Energy and Water, comprising $679,000 of recurrent appropriations and $938,000 of capital injection appropriations.

The rollover of $938,000 capital injection for DECCEW includes:
