Reasons for Change in Appropriation

The Access to Legislation baseline within the Drafting and Access to Legislation multi category appropriation decreased by $1.250 million for 2014/15 due to the maintenance and support costs for the New Zealand Legislation System being lower than anticipated, funding allocated for external assistance with proofreading peaks of legislation was not required, and costs relating to activities within the PCO's Access Strategy were not incurred.
