Reasons for Change in Appropriation

This appropriation decreased by $1.581 million to $59.477 million for 2015/16 due to:

  • a retention of underspends of $3 million from 2015/16 to enable the implementation of the outcomes of an internal capability initiative in the 2016/17 financial year; and
  • a change in the classification of $75,000 of the funding recoverable from the Australian Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade for the delivery of their Niue development programme.

The decreases are partially offset by:

  • an increase of $750,000 resulting from a retention of underspends from 2014/15; and
  • an increase of $744,000 resulting from foreign exchange rate and overseas inflation movements.

Reasons for Change in Appropriation

This multiyear appropriation increased by $16.437 million in 2015/16 due to the carry-forward of $17.571 million of underspends related to the expiring of the 2012/13 to 2014/15 multiyear appropriation. This increase is partially offset by a decrease of $466,000 relating to a fiscally neutral transfer to Vote Foreign Affairs and Trade, Non-Departmental Output Expense, Pacific Broadcasting Services.
