Time-Limited Funding

Time-limited funding does not meet the definition of a “risk” under the PFA, but is further information that is prepared to increase transparency about initiatives with funding profiles that cease or decrease during the forecast period.

The following table outlines those areas where initiatives have time-limited funding that decreases or ceases at some point and may potentially be extended, using a $5 million materiality threshold. They are often related to pilot programmes.

The following table shows the impact on the operating balance if funding were to be appropriated to maintain funding levels for these initiatives (i.e. extend the initiatives beyond their current scheduled completion dates). These amounts would need to be managed within the forecast operating spending.
