1.Variance in 2019-20 is due to funds received for employee provisions transferred to IPEA and lower than anticipated employee and supplier expenditure due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

2. Variance reflects lower than budgeted levels of travel activity due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

Accounting Policy

Revenue from Government

Amounts appropriated for departmental appropriations for the year (adjusted for any formal additions and reductions) are recognised as Revenue from Government when the entity gains control of the appropriation, except for certain amounts that relate to activities that are reciprocal in nature, in which case revenue is recognised only when it has been earned. Appropriations receivable are recognised at their nominal amounts.
