Reasons for Change in Appropriation

This appropriation decreased by $1.441 million to $21.256 million in 2016/17 due to:

  • fiscally neutral adjustments between departmental output expense appropriations administered by Te Puni Kokiri to fund priorities, address cost pressures, and to adjust the allocation of overheads ($3.200 million)
  • a fiscally neutral transfer to departmental output expense: Māori Land Service Programme to provide additional funding for this programme of work ($500,000)
  • technical adjustments to reflect two reductions in the Crown capital charge rate: from 8% to 7% from 1 July 2016; and from 7% to 6% from 1 January 2017 ($26,000)
  • a fiscally neutral transfer from departmental output expense: Whānau Ora Administration to strengthen Te Puni Kokiri regional and investment capability ($2.285 million), and
  • an expense transfer of Māori Land Service Programme funding from 2015/16 to 2016/17 and subsequent fiscally neutral transfer to the newly established Māori Land Service Programme appropriation - with a net nil fiscal impact.
