The Supplementary Estimates outlines the additional expenses and capital expenditure required for the financial year about to end. The Supporting Information is organised on the same basis as the Information Supporting the Estimates and provides reasons for the changes to appropriations during the year and certain additional performance information for new appropriations.
The Public Finance Act 1989 requires that the Supplementary Estimates be laid before the House of Representatives on the introduction of any Appropriation Bill proposing changes to appropriations for a financial year. These Supplementary Estimates accompany the Appropriation (2008/2009 Supplementary Estimates) Bill, which is the second Appropriation Bill relating to the 2008/2009 financial year.
The Supplementary Estimates provide Members of Parliament with details about changes to:
- appropriations for each Vote;
- purpose of appropriations;
- Crown revenue and receipts for each Vote.
Votes that do not require any changes to their Estimates of Appropriations have not been included in this document. However, their appropriation details are provided in the summary tables.
Chapters of the Supplementary Estimates 2008/09 are available in Adobe PDF and HTML formats.
