Output Expenses

Non-departmental output expenses increased $5 million from 2016/17 due to increased funding for High Performance Sport and Sports Anti-Doping.

Non-departmental output expenses were higher in 2014/15 due to Sport New Zealand receiving a one-off contribution of $3.355 million to support hosting the ICC Cricket World Cup 2015 and another one-off contribution of $2 million for the costs of constructing the Hagley Oval Pavilion.

Investment in non-departmental output expenses were higher in 2013/14, as Sport New Zealand was granted an additional one-off $7 million to invest in the ICC Cricket World Cup 2015 and establish 2015 World Cup Offices for the ICC Cricket World Cup 2015 and the Under 20 FIFA World Cup 2015.
