required by the act, I table a copy of the recent authorisation made to roll over undisbursed appropriation from 2013-14 to 2014-15. This package includes one instrument signed under section 16B. The appropriation being rolled over was not disbursed during the 2013-14 fiscal year but is still required in the 2014-15 fiscal year for the completion of projects indentified in the instrument.
The instrument authorises a total of $726,000 in controlled capital injection appropriations in rollovers for Housing ACT. 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, 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 capital injection (controlled) include $361,000 for expansion of social housing; $290,000 for housing elderly public housing tenants design; and $75,000 for housing older people in the Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander community design works.
Specific details regarding these rollovers are included in the instrument. I commend the paper to the Assembly.
