Note that from 2010-11, the Government introduced net cash appropriation arrangements and in respect of the NLA as a collection institution, revenue appropriations for depreciation expenses for the National Collections were ceased. The NLA instead received a separate Collection Development Acquisition Budget provided through an equity appropriation to fund additions to the National Collection.
