Adjustments to the Summary of Financial Activity Table Due to Vote Restructuring

There have been no restructuring adjustments to prior year information in the Summary of Financial Activity table.

Output Expenses

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

Incremental increases from 2019/20 to 2020/23 are due to increased funding for Sport New Zealand to support improved wellbeing through support for delivery of the health and physical education curriculum including teacher support, a focus on healthy eating and provision of active school environments.

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 International Cricket Council Cricket World Cup 2015 and another one-off contribution of $2 million for the costs of constructing the Hagley Oval Pavilion.
