Revenue from Others 138,255 (6,250) 132,005

Reasons for Change in Appropriation

This appropriation decreased by $5.655 million from $197.800 million to $192.145 million for 2013/14. The decrease relates to:

  • $12.500 million in 2013/14 as a result of an expense transfer from 2013/14 to 2014/15 for the Immigration Global Management System deferred capital spend which has impacted on expenditure (capital charge and depreciation).

The decrease was offset by expense transfers from 2012/13:

  • $5.350 million for the Immigration Global Management System to meet amended project milestones around the capital expenditure spend
  • $45,000 for the Immigration New Zealand Health Project to provide additional funding for permanent in-house clinical expertise to replace short-term contracted clinical capability
  • $200,000 for the Lean Six Sigma Programme to fund the delayed work programme due to the restructuring impact of the new Visa Services Global Delivery Model
  • $700,000 for the Service Manager Pool Rotations to fund significant number of movements as the new management structure is implemented
  • $300,000 for the Settlement Services New Zealand's website due to delayed work on Immigration New Zealand's main website, and
  • $250,000 for the Immigration Border Training due to a delay in delivering core skills training for all front line staff in the Intelligence Risk and Integrity Division.
