Reasons for Change in Appropriation

The Ministerial Servicing category decreased by $127,000 to $4.620 million for 2015/16 due to: 

  • $100,000 due to the departmental output class budget adjustment (see Note 1)
  • $27,000 due to the Ministry of Health's contribution to the Budget 2015 System Package.  

This Policy Advice category decreased by $293,000 to $16.148 million for 2015/16 due to:

  • $204,000 due to the departmental output class budget adjustment (see Note 1)
  • $89,000 due to the Ministry of Health's contribution to the Budget 2015 System Package.

Note 1 - In 2015/16 the Ministry transferred funding between its departmental output classes, so that the funding better reflected the outputs the Ministry expected to deliver during the year. This transfer was fiscally neutral to the Vote and to the Crown.
