1.3 - Analysis of Significant Trends

Output Expenses

Non-departmental output expenses increased $5 million from 2016/17 due to increased funding for High Performance Sport and Sports Anti-Doping.

Non-departmental output expenses decreased in 2015/16 compared to 2014/15 due to Sport New Zealand receiving a one-off contribution of $3.355 million in 2014/15 to support hosting the ICC Cricket World Cup 2015 and another one-off contribution of $2 million in 2014/15 for the costs of constructing the Hagley Oval Pavilion.

Investment in non-departmental output expenses decreased in 2014/15 relative to 2013/14, as Sport New Zealand was granted an additional one-off $7 million in 2013/14 to invest in the ICC Cricket World Cup 2015 and establish 2015 World Cup Offices for the ICC Cricket World Cup 2015 and the Under 20 FIFA World Cup 2015.

During 2011/12 additional ongoing funding was provided to support the High Performance Sport strategy.

Other Expenses

During 2011/12, a one-off payment was made to Rugby New Zealand 2011 to meet the final forecast losses from the 2011 Rugby World Cup.
