Reasons for Change in Appropriation

This appropriation increased by $39.359 million to $430.412 million in 2015/16. This relates to:

  • a fiscally neutral transfer of $30.033 million from other appropriations to align the resource requirements with demand and activities
  • a carry forward of $8.560 million from underspends in 2014/15
  • an increase in third party funding of $6.313 million for Youth Development operations.

The increase was partly offset by:

  • a expense transfer of $4.632 million to 2016/17 relating to the deferred maintenance on the Defence Force's aging estate
  • a reduction of $915,000 as NZDF's contribution to an All-of-Government initiative.
