Guide to Reading the Estimates of Appropriations

After the introduction in each sector volume, the following information is provided, where applicable, for each Vote within the sector.

Title page The title page specifies the appropriation Minister(s) responsible for existing and proposed appropriations in the Vote, the appropriation administrator, and the responsible Minister for the department.
Overview A plain-language overview of the focus of the appropriations in the Vote.
Details of each appropriation and capital injection

One or more tables containing information on each appropriation in a Vote:

Annual and Permanent Appropriations - The title, scope, and amount of each annual and permanent appropriation, the title and single overarching purpose of each multi-category appropriation and the title, scope and forecast amount of each category within a multi-category appropriation.

  • The 2015/16 Final Budgeted column shows the amount in the 2015/16 Estimates varied by any change in the 2015/16 Supplementary Estimates.
  • The 2015/16 Estimated Actual column shows the estimated amount that will have been spent against each appropriation (or category within a multi-category appropriation) by the end of the 2015/16 financial year.
  • In the 2016/17 Budget column, the annual amounts for which parliamentary authority is sought in the Appropriation (2016/17 Estimates) Bill appear in bold type. As permanent appropriations have already been approved by Parliament, their amounts are forecasts, not a limit, so are not shown in bold type.

Multi-Year Appropriations - The type, title, scope and amount of each MYA , including any adjustments since originally appropriated, amounts incurred or estimated for particular years, and the estimated remaining balance.

Total Annual, Permanent and Multi-Year Appropriations - The Total Annual and Permanent Appropriations and MYA forecasts by appropriation type. This table summarises total appropriations, or forecasts for MYAs for the Vote.

Capital Injection Authorisations - The name of the department seeking the additional capital.

  • The 2015/16 Final Budgeted column shows the amount in the 2015/16 Estimates varied by any change in the 2015/16 Supplementary Estimates
  • The 2015/16 Estimated Actual amount is the estimated amount of capital injection that will have been made to the department/Office by the end of the 2015/16 financial year.
  • The 2016/17 Budget amount is the amount for which parliamentary authority is sought in the Appropriation (2016/17 Estimates) Bill and appears in bold type.
