Reasons for Change in Appropriation

This appropriation increased by $434,000 to $6.763 million for 2015/16 due mainly to the transfer of $517,000 from 2014/15 to assist the Ministry with the on-going implementation of its new operating model. Further to this, the Ministry received an additional $25,000 from the third party sponsors of the Prime Minister's Pacific Youth Awards and $14,000 from the secondment of Ministry staff to other government agencies. These increases were partially offset by the transfer of $122,000 from this appropriation to the Ministry's departmental capital appropriation. This transfer was required to assist the Ministry with an intensive period of capital investment during 2015/16.
