The variance in departmental appropriations available to appropriations applied (spent) is attributed to the progressive and measured establishment of the Agency, coupled with constraints placed on the Agency due to COVID-19 in areas such as:
- travel and on the ground community engagement;
- assets received free of charge for leased premises;
- leveraging existing Australian Government capabilities such as Services Australia Recovery Connect, where appropriate; and
- timings associated with the transition of capabilities from other agencies, such as the National Drought Map.
The following table outlines the unspent balance of appropriations available as at the end of the reporting period.
