1.3 - Analysis of Significant Trends

The departmental appropriations in Vote Defence, which are detailed in the Summary of Financial Activity table in Part 1.2 above, show the significant changes discussed below.

Departmental Output Expense Appropriations

Increasing departmental output expense appropriations over the period shown in Part 1.2 above, are due to the following factors:

  • Increases from 2016/17 to 2018/19 are the result of the Enhancements to Defence Capability Development and Acquisition initiative, which allowed the Ministry of Defence to grow its capability workforce and make one-off investments in systems to successfully deliver on the Crown's anticipated capital spend in Defence.
  • Increases from 2019/20 onwards are the result of the additional funding for the Operating Cost Pressures initiative, which provided the funding required to meet the additional costs associated with the Ministry's new permanent location in Defence House.
  • Increases from 2020/21 onwards are the result of the:
    • Price Related Cost Pressures initiative, which addressed market driven inflation cost pressures
    • Portfolio Management initiative, for the enhancement of existing systems and processes to improve the portfolio efficiency and risk management for major capability projects
    • Policy Demand initiative, to meet additional policy demand in a changing strategic climate and support increased international defence engagement.

Variations in past annual expenditure from the above trend were primarily due to the fluctuating costs of pre-acquisition activities undertaken by the Ministry.

Departmental Other Expenses Appropriations

The 2016/17 Other Expenses arises from the value of assets written-off or impaired due to the November 2016 Kaikoura earthquake.

Non-Departmental Multi-Category Expense and Capital Appropriation

The movements in capital expenditure incurred under the non-departmental multi-category expense and capital appropriation relate to the volume of capital projects underway in each financial year; changes to the forecast timing in achieving the project milestones; and associated changes in the timing of supplier payments for those milestones. Increases over future years are primarily due to the Air Surveillance Maritime Patrol and Tactical Future Air Mobility projects progressing in the main production phase of the project.

Departmental Capital Expenditure

The majority of the capital expenditure over the years relates to the maintenance of the Ministry of Defence's asset base, primarily IT software and equipment required by the Ministry to deliver its stated outcomes and outputs.

Capital Receipts

The Ministry of Defence purchases and develops items of major military capability for the New Zealand Defence Force. The Ministry's capital receipts fluctuates in line with non-departmental capital expenditure, incurred under the non-departmental multi-category expense and capital appropriation, due to the purchase of developed capabilities by the New Zealand Defence Force.

1.4 - Reconciliation of Changes in Appropriation Structure

Changes in the appropriation structure for Vote Defence are due to:

  • Departmental appropriations - consolidation of small appropriations as the first step in modernising the public finance system.
  • Non-Departmental appropriations - the non-departmental capital expenditure appropriation is restructured into a multi-category appropriation with an expense component to allow for the recognition of non-capitalisable costs incurred during the procurement or refurbishment of major military capabilities for the New Zealand Defence Force.

Reasons for Change in Appropriation

The increase in this appropriation by $174.659 million in 2021/22 to $873.354 million is primarily due to the Air Surveillance Maritime Patrol (formerly Future Air Surveillance Capability) and Tactical Future Air Mobility Capability projects progressing in the main production phase of the projects.
