In the 2014/15 report, Housing was grouped in the Social Development sector, but this year Housing has increased in whole-of-life cost in the portfolio to the extent it is represented as a category in its own right. These projects include upgrades as well as new builds.

Four of the five biggest sectors, Transport, Housing, Health, and Canterbury Recovery, are mostly large construction projects delivering improved infrastructure.

The majority of this spending is regional, such as new hospitals in Christchurch, Dunedin, and Nelson, and improved transport networks in Auckland.

Defence also continues to be one of the largest investment sectors, with a wide range of major capital acquisition projects underway to build the capability required to deliver the Government's Defence strategy.
