Reasons for Change in Appropriation

The net increase in this appropriation is due to a new policy initiative of $1.500 million to optimise office space at Statistics House under the Wellington Accommodation Project Tranche 2. There has also been a baseline contribution of $246,000 returned to the Crown and a fiscally neutral transfer of $200,000 to the Data Futures Partnership appropriation.
