As a consequence of the 2013 Amendment to the Public Finance Act, Multi Class Output Expense Appropriations were converted to Multi-Category Appropriations.

Departmental Output Expenses

Between 2009/10 and 2017/18, the departmental baseline is forecast to increase by $2.403 million (5%).

The increase mainly relates to new funding for implementing, developing and evaluating the Whānau Ora service delivery approach, offset either by the completion of a number of departmental programmes since 2009/10, or a reduction in their funding levels, along with the impact of the efficiency savings that Te Puni Kokiri is expected to meet.

Non-Departmental Output Expenses

Between 2009/10 and 2017/18, the non-departmental output expenses are forecast to increase by $41.760 million (40%).

The increase largely relates to new funding to develop Whānau Ora service delivery capability and whānau integration, innovation and engagement. Over the years, additional funding has also been appropriated for the promotion of the Māori language, Māori radio broadcasting and Māori tourism.

Other Expenses

Between 2009/10 and 2017/18, the non-departmental other expenses is forecast to increase by $996,000 (6%).

The increase mainly relates to new funding in Budget 2014 for Māori ICT Development Fund ($7.500 million), Moving the Māori Nation - supporting Māori culture and sport ($2.500 million), and Budget 2013 funding for Māori language research ($2 million); largely offset by one-off funding in 2009/10 to support the construction of a Wharewaka on the Wellington waterfront ($7 million); and to write-off the loans portfolio administered under Part 2 of the Māori Affairs Restructuring Act 1989 ($3.434 million).

As a consequence of the 2013 Amendment to the Public Finance Act, Multi Class Output Expense Appropriations were converted to Multi-Category Appropriations.

Reasons for Change in Appropriation

The higher appropriation in 2013/14 mainly reflects expense transfers of $2.414 million for Constitutional Advisory Panel, Organisational Change and Science and Innovation funding from 2012/13 to 2013/14. These are partially offset by an expense transfer for Constitutional Advisory Panel of $800,000 from 2013/14 to 2014/15.

The prior year information in the Summary of Financial Activity table has been restated to reflect the current Vote structure.

In the 2010/11 Budget the Ministry's contract management role was expanded when an additional $1.200 million per year was appropriated to fund an innovative four-year programme to support young Pacific people into sustainable employment and training in Auckland (Pacific Employment Support Services [PESS]). Funding for these programmes was intended to end in June 2014.

The 2010/11 Budget also saw the removal of the funding of $100,000 for the Modern Apprenticeship Campaign as the programme ended in June 2010.

In the 2011/12 year the Ministry received an additional $253,334 in Non-Departmental funding following the transfer of Pre-Business Training from Vote Economic Development.

For the 2012/13 year the basis of the appropriation was changed to a Multi Class Output Appropriation to enable separate identification of Policy Advice using a standard Treasury definition. The Baseline funding included a reduction of $187,000 reflecting Efficiency Savings targets that all departments were expected to achieve, as well as loss of funding for superannuation contributions from the State Services Commission.

For 2014/15 and following years the appropriation has been changed to a Multi Category Appropriation.

In the 2014/15 year the Ministry is to receive a one off funding of $619,000, and increased on-going baseline funding of $390,000 to implement a new operating model aimed at better relationships and communications with Pacific Communities. In addition funding of $1.100 million for the PESS programme was extended for one year.

As a consequence of the 2013 Amendment to the Public Finance Act, Multi Class Output Expense Appropriations were converted to Multi-Category Appropriations.

The fluctuations in the Multi-Category Appropriation (MCA) Output Expenses for Statistics New Zealand are due to the cyclical nature of some of its activities, restructure costs in 2013/14 and changes in new initiative funding. In particular:

  • The Statistics 2020 Te Kapehu Whetu is a ten year strategy and programme of work to deliver more value from, and address key risks to, official statistics. Appropriations for this programme fluctuate from 2011/12 through to 2017/18 depending on the work programme.
  • The Appropriations from 2013/14 through to 2017/18 include an increase for the Integrated Data Infrastructure project. The project will allow Statistics New Zealand to increase the capacity of, and improve access to, the Integrated Data Infrastructure as a more systematic way of managing, matching, anonymising and accessing person-centred data from across government. Statistics New Zealand is a joint lead on this cross-government initiative with the Treasury, which is establishing analytics and insights capability using the data.
  • Restructure costs in 2013/14 resulting from organisational change to deliver our Statistics 2020 vision is being funded by a fiscally neutral transfer from 2014/15 and 2015/16 Appropriations.

The fluctuations in the Appropriations for Output Expenses are due to the cyclical nature of the Census of Population and Dwellings. In the year the Census is conducted, the costs rise significantly. The Actual for 2010/11 was $44.072 million for a Census that was due to be held in March 2011. This Census was deferred due to the Christchurch earthquake on 22 February 2011. The Actual for 2012/13 was $53.280 million for the Census on 5 March 2013. The budget of $14.878 million in 2014/15 is made up of $1.778 million for the completion of the 2013 Census and $13.100 million for preparation for a 2018 Census and the continuation of a Census Transformation Programme. From 2015/16 the budget for the 2018 Census is subject to approval by Cabinet of a focussed detailed business case.

What is Intended to be Achieved with this Appropriation

This appropriation is intended to achieve the conducting an official census of population and dwellings, to produce an accurate count of New Zealand's population on census night, for electoral purposes, policy setting, and other decision making.

How Performance will be Assessed and End of Year Reporting Requirements

Performance will be assessed based on having a high proportion of residents in the country on the night counted by the census (ie, the coverage rate), and having a high proportion of residents return their completed form or complete it online (ie, the response rate). The coverage and response rates will be available following the completion of analysis of the 2013 Post Enumeration Survey and will be published before the end of 2013/14.

End of Year Performance Reporting

Performance information for this appropriation will be reported by Statistics New Zealand in its Annual Report 2014/15.

Reasons for Change in Appropriation

This appropriation was established from 1 October 2011, to enable a 2013 Census to be taken, following the decision to defer the 2011 Census. This multi-year appropriation expires on 30 June 2015.

The planning and delivery of the Census of Population and Dwellings is normally phased over a five-year cycle. The cycle for the 2013 Census differs due to it following directly on from the deferred 2011 Census. Much of the preparation work for the deferred census was able to be reused (for example, no further dress rehearsal was required, and some contracts were able to be rolled over).

In 2013/14, the main activity was the completion of data processing, release of official census counts and completion of the 2013 Post Enumeration Survey (PES). The PES estimates the proportion of residents in the country on the night counted by the census (ie, the coverage rate), and the proportion of residents that return their completed form (ie, the response rate). Results of the PES are scheduled for release before the end of 2013/14. In 2014/15 the main activity will be production of the final census products and the closure of the 2013 Census programme.

Note 3 - The Chair of the Advisory Committee on Statistics satisfaction with the support provided by Statistics New Zealand will be measured through a short survey annually.

Note 4 - Advisory functions to the Minister of Statistics and Statistics New Zealand are currently being reviewed.

Note 5 - As at late February 2014, there had been 1.53 million visits to the Statistics New Zealand website (www.stats.govt.nz). It is estimated that the website will receive 2.40 million visits (100,000 less than originally expected target) by the end of the current financial year. This is mainly due to a reduced marketing spend, and the later than scheduled release of the StatsMaps mapping product. Some initiatives may be undertaken to reduce the shortfall in visits.

Note 6 - It is anticipated that website visits for 2014/15 will be 2.5 million. This allows for a planned increase of some 80,000 visits due to increased 2013 Census data becoming available plus increased accessibility for mobile and tablet users due to responsive design work that is expected to be completed in June 2014. It assumes an advertising budget consistent with the amount originally allocated for 2013/14.

Note 7 - This measure combines a number of elements that do not necessarily represent a true measure of performance or delivery. For example, the 2600 estimated actual standard for 2013/14 includes 1550 microdata access sessions, however the duration of the sessions is not recorded, and may be influenced by external factors such as the researchers own availability, changing data needs, or project funding. As a result, this measure has been revised for 2014/15 (see Notes 9 and 10).

Note 8 - Customer satisfaction is measured through a voluntary survey sent to clients after the requested service has been provided.

Note 9 - New measure for 2014/15. This represents the total number of customised data requests completed by Statistics New Zealand staff for customers, including requests international bodies.

Note 10 - New measure for 2014-15. This represents the total number of approved new applications for access to microdata onsite, remote or offsite, and the number of licences approved for access to confidentialised unit record files (this excludes variations to existing approvals).

Note 11 - A release includes a media release and an information release onto the website, which occur at the same time. It includes the key statistical results, commentary on the analysis of the results, tables of data and technical notes to explain definitions and methods.

Note 12 - The number of releases for both statistical information services categories for are provisional at the time of the publication of the Estimates. The final number is confirmed when the Purchase and Performance Agreement with the Minister of Statistics is agreed to and signed in June of each year.

Note 13 - New measure for 2014/15. Target response rates have the unintended consequence that the push to achieve the last few percentage points can add unnecessary cost and compliance load, with no related quality improvement. The new measure involves the responsible manager for the statistical release signing off that it has been produced in accordance with the Official Statistics System principles and protocols for quality and that it conforms to the Statistics New Zealand Methodological Standard for Reporting of Data Quality. Statistics NZ already includes quality statements in most of its statistical releases. However, the new measure will help ensure that quality reporting is appropriate and consistent. Statistics New Zealand will continue to report on target and achieved survey response rates within the published quality statements. Reporting on these measures is a requirement of the data quality reporting standard.

Note 14 - Measure to be discontinued from 2014/15. See note 13.

Note 15 - A data release is timely if it is available to users within the period in which it remains useful. Planned timeliness is a design decision, based on trade-offs with accuracy, response rates and cost. The calendar of release dates for periodical statistical releases is published on the Statistics New Zealand website at least six months in advance, and the achievement of the planned release dates is monitored as a timeliness performance measure.

Note 16 - A survey of the general public was carried out in 2010, government workers in 2011, and businesses in 2012. A programme of surveys of key customer groups is being carried out over a three to four year cycle. The second round of surveys begins in 2014, with the results from the second survey of public scheduled for publication in the Annual Report 2013/14. The sample of statistics includes statistics from Output Class 2 on statistics on employment and unemployment (such as Household Labour Force statistics), and population statistics (such as statistics from the Census of Population and Dwellings and Output Class 3 on inflation (such as the Consumers Price Index), statistics on the national economy (such as Gross Domestic Product).

Note 17 - Initial results of the second Public survey show a majority of respondents 'almost always' trust economic and business official statistics such as Consumer Price Index and Gross Domestic Product statistics.

Note 18 - Initial results of the second Public survey show a majority of respondents 'almost always' trust official statistics such as labour force or population statistics.

Reasons for Change in Appropriation

The decrease in this new Multi-Category Appropriation for 2014/15 (from the 2013/14 Multi Class Output Expense Appropriation of $115.412 million) is mainly due to the cyclical nature of some of Statistic's New Zealand's activities. Funding for the 2013 post Census Survey ended in 2013/14 and there has been a reduction in the Statistics 2020 programme which fluctuates depending on the work programme. There were also restructure costs in 2013/14 resulting from organisational change to deliver our statistics 2020 vision funded by a fiscally neutral transfer from 2014/15 and 2015/16 Appropriations. This has been partly offset by an increase for both Integrated Data Infrastructure and the Continuation of the New Zealand Population and Social Statistics Programme.

Overview

The Minister for Treaty of Waitangi Negotiations is responsible for appropriations in Vote Treaty Negotiations for the 2014/15 financial year including a multi-year appropriation and a range of annual appropriations.

Vote Treaty Negotiations contains a multi-year appropriation of $1,400 million for the five-year period 2014 to 2018. This appropriation is for the settlement of historical Treaty of Waitangi claims and provides for the payment of redress through the transfer of assets (cash and property) from the Crown to claimant groups, and for the payment of interest on settlement redress.

In addition, annual appropriations sought for Vote Treaty Negotiations in 2014/15 total $70.709 million. This is intended to be spent as follows:

  • $31.894 million (45% of the Vote) for the purchase of negotiation and implementation of historical Treaty claims and administration and implementation of the Marine and Coastal Area (Takutai Moana) Act 2011 from the Ministry of Justice
  • $11.143 million (16% of the Vote) for the purchase of property management services from the Ministry of Justice
  • $8.102 million (12% of the Vote) for claimant funding to support the settlement of historical Treaty claims
  • $120,000 (less than 1% of the Vote) for debt write-off of rentals owing from Landbank properties
  • $2.400 million (3% of the Vote) for agreed payments for Foreshore and Seabed agreements
  • $3.450 million (5% of the Vote) for contributions toward determining customary interests in the Marine and Coastal Area
  • $3.600 million (5% of the Vote) for depreciation on assets held in the Landbank, and
  • $10 million (14% of the Vote) for the purchase of assets for possible use in future historical Treaty of Waitangi settlements.

The Ministry of Justice expects to collect $7.340 million of revenue on behalf of the Crown from Landbank property operations and $8.496 million of interest revenue from lending to implement the Ngati Whatua Orakei Deed of Settlement.

Details of these appropriations are set out in Parts 2-4.

Output Expenses

Departmental output expenses reduce slightly from 2014/15 onwards. This is due to the receipt of additional funding in 2013/14 to maintain Treaty settlement progress.

Other Expenses

During 2012/13 and 2013/14 a number of significant Treaty settlement milestones were reached. From 2014/15 onwards, expenditure on Treaty settlements is expected to remain relatively constant over the forecast period.

Non-Departmental Capital Expenditure

Non-departmental capital expenditure is scheduled to return to baseline levels from 2014/15 onwards.

Performance Trends

The increased settlement momentum from previous years is expected to continue, as the Ministry continues to negotiate with claimant groups who are willing and able. Over 2013/14 and 2014/15, it is expected that there will be an increase in the number of Mandates recognised and Terms of Negotiation agreed, as well as a continued high number of Agreements in Principles and Deeds of Settlement signed. It is anticipated that there will be a significant increase in legislation introduced and enacted.

Reasons for Change in Appropriation

The increase in this appropriation of $742,000 for 2014/15 is mainly due to an expense transfer from 2013/14 to 2014/15. The expense transfer will fund the delayed felling of the Pukeora forest.

What is Intended to be Achieved with this Appropriation

This appropriation provides funding to settle Deeds of Agreement signed under the Foreshore and Seabed Act 2004, before it was repealed.

How Performance will be Assessed and End of Year Reporting Requirements

An exemption was granted under s15D(2)(b)(ii) of the PFA, as additional performance information is unlikely to be informative because this appropriation is solely for Deeds of Agreement payments. Performance information relating to what is intended to be achieved with this expenditure is provided under the Treaty Negotiations and Marine and Coastal Area (Takutai Moana) Act multi-category appropriation, specifically the Treaty Negotiations and Marine and Coastal Area (Takutai Moana) Act category.

Reasons for Change in Appropriation

The increase in this appropriation of $2.400 million for 2014/15 is due to expected payments as per the signed Deed of Agreement.

Reasons for Change in Appropriation

The decrease in this appropriation of $4.921 million for 2014/15 is mainly due to an expense transfer from 2012/13 to 2013/14, which increased the appropriation in 2013/14. In 2014/15 the appropriation returns to baseline.

Reasons for Change in Appropriation

As a result of the Public Finance Amendment Act 2013, the existing Treaty Negotiations and Marine and Coastal Area (Takutai Moana) Act Multi-Class Output Appropriation (MCOA) was converted to a Multi Category Appropriation (MCA). The explanations below represent the movements between the MCOA figures in 2013/14 and the new MCA figures for 2014/15 as they fund the same outputs.

Policy Advice - Treaty Negotiations and Marine and Coastal Area (Takutai Moana) Act

The decrease in this appropriation of $204,000 for 2014/15 is mainly due to an expense transfer from 2012/13 to 2013/14 to address cost pressures and priorities identified in the Justice Sector Four-year Plan. In 2014/15 the appropriation returns to baseline.

Representation - Waitangi Tribunal and Courts

The increase in this appropriation of $687,000 for 2014/15 is mainly due to a fiscally neutral adjustment from 2013/14 to address cost pressures and priorities identified in the Justice Sector Four-year Plan. In 2014/15 the appropriation returns to baseline.

Treaty Negotiations and Marine and Coastal Area (Takutai Moana) Act

The decrease in this appropriation of $5.163 million for 2014/15 is mainly due to additional funding received for negotiating historical Treaty of Waitangi settlements in 2013/14.

As a consequence of the 2013 Amendment to the Public Finance Act, Multi Class Output Expense Appropriations were converted to Multi-Category Appropriations.

The prior year information in the Summary of Financial Activity table has been restated to reflect the current Vote Structure.

Capital Expenditure

The Ministry is not a capital intensive agency. Capital expenditure is primarily for the routine replacement and upgrade of the Ministry's information technology and office equipment.

In 2009/10 significant work was undertaken on the Ministry's knowledge management system.

In 2013/14 the Ministry planned to move premises ahead of its lease expiration. It is likely that the fit-out construction work will be partially completed in 2013/14 and that the remainder of the work will be completed in 2014/15.

Multi-Category Output Expenses

From 2009/10 the Ministry's baseline increased to do more in-depth work relating to improved economic outcomes for women ($500,000 per year). In 2009/10 special project funding was also received for a pilot study on healthy sexuality, respectful relating and resilience in young people ($153,000).

In 2010/11 funds were brought forward from the next three years to fund the possible one-off costs of implementing a review of the Ministry's administrative and support services ($300,000). Funds not required for the implementation of the review were transferred back to 2011/12 ($81,000), 2012/13 ($100,000) and 2013/14 ($100,000).

In 2012/13 funds were transferred to 2013/14 to enable the Ministry to move premises ahead of its lease expiration ($180,000).

From 1 July 2012 funding for the National Advisory Council on the Employment of Women was transferred to Vote Women's Affairs from Vote Labour ($250,000 in 2012/13 and $200,000 in 2013/14 and out-years).

What is Intended to be Achieved with this Appropriation

This appropriation is intended to achieve improved outcomes for women in New Zealand. This is not only important for women but as an investment in New Zealand's future prosperity and well-being:

  • Increased opportunities for women to contribute to the workforce to the full extent of their skills and abilities will assist New Zealand to further develop a productive and competitive economy.
  • Greater participation in paid employment improves outcomes for women and their families, decreases benefit dependence, and increases productivity.
  • Greater diversity in governance and leadership roles correlates with better decision making and organisational performance with consequent economic gains.
  • Reducing the burden of violence on women will increase women's safety and reduce the social and economic cost of violence.

The Ministry does this by focussing on specific areas, within the wider Government targets, where it can best contribute by providing evidence and advice to influence key decision makers to generate the greatest change for New Zealand women.

End of Year Performance Reporting

Reasons for Change in Appropriations

The decrease in this appropriation for 2014/15 is mainly due to an expense transfer to 2013/14 to enable the Ministry to move premises ahead of its lease expiration ($180,000) and departmental contributions received for staff on secondment in 2013/14 ($93,000).

Introduction#

Purpose of the Estimates of Appropriations

The Estimates of Appropriations (the Estimates) provides members of Parliament with:

  • Details of the terms of all proposed appropriations and of capital injections to departments and Offices of Parliament.
  • Supporting information providing for each appropriation or category of a multi-category appropriation:
    • a concise explanation of what is intended to be achieved, and
    • (unless an appropriation has been exempted from end-of-year performance reporting)
      • a concise explanation of how performance will be assessed
      • who will report on what was achieved with the appropriation, and
      • in what document that report will be presented to the House of Representatives.

The information ensures that Parliament can exercise an appropriate level of scrutiny and control over the Government's operating and investing activities and provides a basis against which Parliament can, after the end of the financial year, assess actual performance against each appropriation (or category of a multi-category appropriation).

The 10 sector volumes of the Estimates are presented to the House of Representatives on the same day as the government introduces the main Appropriation Bill for each financial year.

Information No Longer in the Estimates of Appropriations#

Following recent amendments to the Public Finance Act 1989 (PFA), and subsequent changes to the format and content of the Estimates, the following information is no longer in the Estimates:

 
Content Where to find this information
The Summary Tables The Summary tables which provide a high-level perspective and comparative “ready reference” for all appropriations (annual, permanent and MYAs) are available online: www.treasury.govt.nz/budget/2014/summarytables/estimates
Forecast financial statements Departments' forecast financial statements will be presented to the House as part of each department's annual report for the previous financial year.
Statements of forecast service performance Departmental statements of forecast service performance are no longer needed in the information supporting the Estimates, as end-of-year reporting on what has been achieved with each appropriation will be directly against each appropriation rather than in a statement of service performance.
Statements of intent Departmental statements of intent are no longer bolted on to the relevant sector volume of the Estimates. Each department's most recent strategic intentions must be available on the department's website, and must be presented to the House of Representatives no later than when the annual report for the previous financial year is presented, possibly in the same document as the annual report or grouped with those of other agencies in a sector.

How the Estimates of Appropriations are Organised#

The Estimates of Appropriations are organised into 10 volumes (B.5 Vols 1-10) by sector, each of which covers one or more Votes. The scope of each sector and the allocation of Votes to a sector reflect a balancing of three desired characteristics - namely that each volume should, where possible:

  • reflect natural sectors
  • keep together Votes administered by the same department, and
  • keep together Votes allocated to a particular select committee of the House of Representatives for examination.

The number of sectors and coverage of each sector was set initially in consultation with the Finance and Expenditure Committee.

There are 54 Votes for 2014/15 as:

  • Vote Economic Development and Vote Employment have been combined into Vote Economic Development and Employment
  • Vote Commerce and Vote Consumer Affairs have been combined into Vote Commerce and Consumer Affairs, and
  • Vote Veterans' Affairs - Social Development has been merged into Vote Social Development.

The table below shows the Votes by Sector and which departments are in each sector.

Appropriations#

Purpose and Nature of Appropriations

An appropriation is a statutory authority from Parliament allowing the Crown or an Office of Parliament to incur expenses or capital expenditure.

Neither the Crown nor an Office of Parliament can legally incur any expense or capital expenditure - as those terms are defined in the PFA - unless it is expressly authorised by or under an Act of Parliament.

Limits Created by Appropriations

Each appropriation is allocated to, and managed as, one of seven types of appropriation.

Each appropriation has a defined scope that limits the uses or activities for which the expenses or capital expenditure can be incurred. The scope should be sufficient on its own to establish the nature and extent of the authority to incur expenses or capital expenditure. The wording of the appropriation scope should achieve the balance between being sufficiently precise to act as an effective constraint against non-authorised activities and not so specific that it inadvertently limits activity intended to be authorised.

Except in a very limited number of cases (eg, permanent appropriations or revenue dependent appropriations) an appropriation also limits the amount of expenses or capital expenditure that can be incurred, and the time period within which those expenses or capital expenditure can be incurred.

Aside from the very limited exclusions provided for in the PFA, the amount of expense or capital expenditure authorised by an appropriation is measured in accordance with generally accepted accounting practice.

Responsibility for Appropriations

The PFA requires each appropriation to be the responsibility of one Minister (or the Speaker) and to be administered by one department (or an Office of Parliament).

A Vote is a group of appropriations (and can be a single appropriation) administered by a single department. Different appropriations within a Vote may be the responsibility of different Ministers.

Types of Appropriation#

The PFA provides for seven types of appropriation. Four appropriation types authorise the incurring of expenses; one type authorises the incurring of capital expenditure; and the remaining types authorise both. These appropriation types can be further differentiated by whether the expenses or capital expenditure are departmental or non-departmental transactions.

Appropriation Type Transaction Status Description
Output Expenses Departmental Authorises expenses to be incurred by a department or an Office of Parliament in supplying a specified category of outputs (goods and services).
  Non-Departmental Authorises expenses to be incurred by the Crown (excluding departments) in purchasing a specified category of outputs (goods and services) from Crown entities or other third parties.
Benefits or Related Expenses Non-Departmental

Authorises expenses to be incurred by the Crown (excluding departments) in transferring resources (generally to individuals for their personal benefit) for which the Crown receives nothing directly in return. (Prior to 1 July 2014, this appropriation type was called Benefits and other Unrequited Expenses.)

Examples include Job Seeker Support and Emergency Benefit, Student Allowances and various scholarships and awards.

Borrowing Expenses Departmental

Authorises the incurring of interest or other financing expenses for loans made to a department or an Office of Parliament, or public securities (undertakings that represent part of the public debt) issued by a department or an Office of Parliament.

In practice, limitations on the rights of departments to borrow or issue securities and limitations on how Offices of Parliament can be funded mean that this type of appropriation is unlikely to be used.

  Non-Departmental

Authorises the incurring of interest or other financing expenses for loans made to the Crown (excluding departments), or public securities (undertakings that represent part of the public debt) issued by the Crown.

Crown debt management is centralised, which means that most debt-servicing expenses appear in Vote Finance.

Other Expenses Departmental

Authorises expenses to be incurred by a department or an Office of Parliament that are not either output expenses or borrowing expenses.

Other expenses should be used only for events that cannot be related back to output production, such as redundancy costs arising from a government decision to cease purchasing certain types of outputs, or a loss on sale of assets made surplus by departmental restructuring.

  Non-Departmental

Authorises expenses to be incurred by the Crown (excluding departments) that are not structured or managed as output expenses, benefits or related expenses, or borrowing expenses.

Other expenses is the residual appropriation type, which should not be used where an appropriation could be better classified or managed as one of the other appropriation types (eg, as output expenses).

Examples include disposal of an asset for less than market value, grants to community organisations, subscriptions for membership of international bodies and remuneration of independent statutory officers.

Capital expenditure Departmental Authorises capital expenditure to be incurred by a department or an Office of Parliament to acquire or develop assets for the use of the department.
  Non-Departmental Authorises capital expenditure to be incurred by the Crown (excluding departments) to acquire or develop Crown assets, including the purchase of equity, or making a loan to a person or organisation that is not a department.
Expenses or Capital expenditure Incurred by an Intelligence and Security Department Departmental Authorises both expenses and capital expenditure to be incurred by the New Zealand Security Intelligence Service or the Government Communications Security Bureau.
Multi-Category Appropriations Departmental or
Non-Departmental
Allows separate categories of departmental output expenses, non-departmental output expenses, departmental other expenses, non-departmental other expenses, or non-departmental capital expenditure to be grouped together in one appropriation provided all the categories contribute to a single overarching purpose.

Types of Output Expense Appropriations#

Some variation is possible for output expense appropriations. For example, the constraint on the amount of expense that can be incurred is not always a fixed sum.

Output Expense Appropriations Type and Authority Description, Constraints on Form and Typical Application

Standard Output Expense Appropriations

(section 7A(1)(a), Public Finance Act 1989)

Departmental or non-departmental:  Authorise a department or an Office of Parliament to incur expenses in supplying a specified category of outputs (goods and services), or the Crown (excluding departments) to incur expenses to purchase a specified category of outputs.

Annual or multi-year:  The authority lapses at the end of the financial year or multi-year period specified.

Single category of output expenses only:  The scope is limited to a single category of outputs (a grouping of similar or related outputs).

Amount limited by Appropriation Act: The amount of a standard output expense appropriation is limited to a set amount of NZ dollars specified in an Appropriation Act.

Typical application:  The normal or default form for an output expense appropriation, used for a wide range of outputs for which the flexibility offered by a multi-category appropriation is not required.

Revenue-Dependent Appropriations (RDA)

(section 21(1), Public Finance Act 1989)

Departmental only:  Authorise a department or an Office of Parliament to incur expenses in supplying a specified category of outputs (goods and services) that are not paid for directly by the Crown.

A proposed RDA must be approved by the Minister of Finance, before it is presented in the Estimates.  Each category of outputs for which an RDA is approved is listed in an Appropriation Act for the relevant financial year.

Annual only:  The authority lapses at the end of the financial year specified.

Single category of output expenses only:  The scope of an RDA is limited to a single category of outputs (a grouping of similar or related outputs).

Amount limited by amount of revenue earned:  The amount of an RDA is limited tothe amount of revenue earned by a department or an Office of Parliament from other departments or from parties other than the Crown during a financial year.  The Minister of Finance can further direct a department to incur expenses to a level lower than the amount of revenue earned, though such directions have been rare.

Typical application:  An RDA provides flexibility to respond to unanticipated changes in the level of external demand for a category of outputs, where the full cost of the outputs is met by external parties and not the Crown.

Appropriation Period#

Three kinds of appropriation can be distinguished on the basis of period - annual and multi-year (as referred to in the above table on types of output expense appropriations), and permanent:

  • Annual Appropriations - Most appropriations allow expenses or capital expenditure to be incurred only during a particular financial year. The amounts for RDAs are forecasts only.
  • Multi-Year Appropriations (MYAs) - The PFA also permits appropriations that allow expenses or capital expenditure to be incurred during a specified period that spans the whole or parts of more than one financial year, but no more than five financial years.
  • Permanent Appropriations (sometimes referred to as permanent legislative authorities or PLAs) -Permanent appropriations are authorised by legislation other than an Appropriation Act and continue in effect until revoked by Parliament. Generally the authorising legislation will impose limits on the scope of the appropriation and not its amount. For those appropriations with limits set in cash terms, section 11(2) of the Public Finance Act 1989 requires that they be reported on an accrual basis. The usual legislative wording allows for expenses to be incurred for the purpose specified in the legislation “without further appropriation than this section”. The scope of a permanent appropriation will reference the relevant section of the authorising legislation.

Types of Crown Revenue and Capital Receipts#

An operating and capital split also applies to Crown revenue and receipts. The following table outlines the three Crown revenue/receipt types:

Crown Revenue Type Transaction Status Description
Tax Revenue Non-Departmental Tax payable to the Crown, such as Income Tax, GST and Fringe Benefit Tax
Non-Tax Revenue Non-Departmental Revenue earned by the Crown from its investing and other operating activities.  Examples include interest income, capital charges and dividends from State-owned enterprises.
Capital Receipts Non-Departmental

Capital received by the Crown:

  • when loans are raised (which appear in Vote Finance) or repayments of principal are made on debts owed to the Crown (for example, in Vote Social Development), or
  • when capital assets are sold.

Capital Injections and Movements in Net Assets#

A capital injection is an investment by the Crown in a department (or an Office of Parliament), which increases the department's net asset balance. Section 12A of the PFA requires capital injections to departments or an Office of Parliament to be authorised under an Appropriation Act.

Further information on capital injections and other movements in a department's net asset balance appears in the Estimates in a Vote that has appropriations belonging to a department's Responsible Minister. The movements reconcile a department's opening and closing net asset balances. This makes it easier to see the balance sheet flows.

Movement Type Description
Capital injections Investment by the Crown in a department, which increases the department's closing net asset balance.
Capital withdrawals Returns of capital by a department to the Crown, which reduce the department's closing net asset balance.
Surplus to be retained/(Deficit incurred) The net surplus forecast to be retained by a department from its operations for a financial year in accordance with section 22(1) of the PFA, or the forecast deficit for the department.  A surplus or deficit will, respectively, increase or decrease the department's closing net asset balance.
Other movements This section is for any other movements that will affect the increases the department's net asset balance. For example movements in asset revaluation reserves.

Guide to Reading the Estimates of Appropriations#

After the introduction in each sector volume, the following information is provided, where applicable, for each Vote within the sector.

Title page The title page specifies the appropriation Minister(s) responsible for existing and proposed appropriations in the Vote, the appropriation administrator, and the responsible Minister for the department.
Summary A plain-language overview of the focus of the appropriations in the Vote.
Details of each appropriation and capital injections

One or more tables containing information on each appropriation in a Vote:

Annual and Permanent Appropriations - The title, scope, and amount of each annual and permanent appropriation, the title and single overarching purpose of each multi-category appropriation and the title, scope and forecast amount of each category within a multi-category appropriation.  The annual amounts for which parliamentary authority is sought in the Appropriation (2014/15 Estimates) Bill appear in bold type. As permanent appropriations have already been approved by Parliament, their amounts are forecasts, not a limit, so are not shown in bold type.

How the Estimates Relate to Other Performance Information presented to the House#

This section outlines the relationship between the information in the Estimates and other performance information presented to the House.

Strategic Intentions

Each department, Office of Parliament, Crown entity and Public Finance Act Schedule 4A company presents information on its strategic intentions to the House, at least once every three years. It may be more frequently if the responsible Minister requires it; there is a material or significant change in the intentions; or the information in the strategic intentions is false or misleading.

Strategic intentions set the out the direction of an agency and how the agency is organised to get there. The information must cover at least the next four financial years, and may include the current financial year. An agency's most recent strategic intentions must always be available on the agency's website, and can be presented to the House with other information eg, the annual report for the previous financial year or grouped with other agencies in a sector.

Annual Performance Expectations

What an agency (eg, department, Office of Parliament, Crown entity or other service provider) intends to achieve with expenditure from appropriations in the next financial year and how each agency will demonstrate its performance (if not exempted) is available in the Estimates.

In addition, Crown entities and Public Finance Act Schedule 4A companies may have reportable outputs that are funded from revenue other than appropriations. What each agency intends to achieve and how it will demonstrate its performance for all its reportable outputs are presented to the House in a Statement of Performance Expectations. The Statement of Performance Expectations must always be available on an agency's website and can be presented to the House with other information eg, the strategic intentions or annual report.

End of Year Performance Information

Performance information on what has been achieved with each appropriation as a whole and each category of a multi-category appropriation is provided to the House in the document most recently indicated in the Estimates or Supplementary Estimates. For example, reporting against appropriations would typically be provided to the House with the annual report of the appropriation administrator (department or Office of Parliament), the Crown entity receiving the appropriation, or in a Minister's report. Alternatively, information on the performance of an appropriation may be provided in a separate sector or thematic report where this would be more useful to Parliament.

Departmental, Office of Parliament, Crown entity, PFA Schedule 4A Company annual reports, and Ministerial reports on what has been achieved with appropriations are required to be provided to the House in the timeframes indicated below:

  • Departmental and Office of Parliament annual report -each department's annual report must be presented 3-4 months after the end of the financial year. The annual report includes the financial statements for the previous financial year, the financial forecasts for the current financial year, the statement of expenses and capital expenditure, and reporting against the department's strategic intentions and annual performance expectations contained in the Estimates.
  • Crown entity orPFA Schedule 4A company annual report - each annual report must be presented 4-5 months after the end of the financial year and includes the financial statements, as well as reporting against the Crown entity's strategic intentions and annual performance expectations from all sources of reportable revenue.
  • Appropriation Minister's annual report - the appropriation Minister must be presented within 4 months after the end of the financial year on the use of non-departmental appropriations that are not reported to the House thorough any other mechanism and have not been exempted from year-end reporting under s.15D of the PFA.
