for the completion of projects identified in the instrument. The instrument authorises a total of $8.609 million in rollovers for the ESDD, comprising $3.307 million net cost of outputs, $512,000 in payments on behalf of the territory and $4.790 million in controlled capital injection appropriations.

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

The rollovers of net cost of outputs, payments on behalf of the territory and controlled capital injection are detailed in the instrument. Specific details regarding these rollovers are included in the instrument. I commend the papers to the Assembly.

MR BARR: I present the government’s submission to the Standing Committee on Public Accounts on the Auditor-General’s report No 7 of 2013 entitled 2012-13 Financial audits. I note that the recommendations in the Auditor-General’s report largely relate to the quality of financial statements and statements of performance, the usefulness of accountability indicators and controls relating to ICT systems. The government’s response agrees to eight of the 11 recommendations in the report and agrees in part to the remaining three. Details of the government’s position on each of the recommendations are contained within the submission I have tabled this afternoon. I commend it to the Assembly.
