$3.501 million of controlled capital injection appropriations. The second instrument authorises $401,000 in a controlled capital injection rollover for the Chief Minister and Cabinet Directorate for the injury prevention and management information system.

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 there are capital works projects or initiatives for which the timing of delivery has changed or been delayed, where outstanding contractual or pending claims exist, or where there are delays in implementing budgeted recurrent initiatives.

The rollovers of net cost of outputs for the Community Services Directorate include $200,000 for the allocation of commonwealth funding under the national disaster resilience program, $163,000 for the maintenance of public art, and $100,000 for business and industrial relations support for community organisations in the ACT.

CSD’s rollovers of capital injection include $954,000 for the completion of the Tuggeranong 55 Plus Club, $736,000 for the continuation of the percent-for-art scheme, $301,000 for the completion of the Flynn childcare centre, $289,000 for the third child and family centre in Belconnen, $286,000 for additional studios and a residence at the Watson Arts Centre, $118,000 for design work for extensions to the Street Theatre, and $95,000 for improvements to Strathnairn homestead.

Specific details regarding these and other rollovers are included in the instrument. I commend these papers to the Assembly.
