Budget 2016 Home Page Summary of Initiatives in Budget 2016

6  Total Appropriations by Vote

As explained in Section 1, this document explains the new initiatives charged against the Budget 2016 operating and capital allowances. However, the new initiatives form only a small portion of total government spending. Core Crown expenditure for 2016/17 is forecast to total $77.4 billion. For more information on forecast expenditure, see Chapter 2 of the 2016 Budget Update.

The table below shows total appropriations, including existing baselines and new initiatives, by Vote. The difference between the 2015/16 and 2016/17 years will reflect the new initiatives detailed in this document, as well as other changes either not charged against allowances or technical adjustments. Examples of changes not charged against the allowance include forecast items such as New Zealand Superannuation. Technical adjustments can include changes such as appropriation or Vote restructures, fiscally neutral transfers of funding between Votes or a reduction in baselines owing to time-limited funding.
