Commentary:

1There were no amounts witheld under section 51 of the PGPA Act from 2020 or 2019 departmental ordinary annual services appropriations.

2Departmental Capital Budgets are appropriated through Appropriation Acts (No. 1,3) and Supply Acts (No.1,3). They form part of ordinary annual services and are not separately identified in the Appropriation Acts.

3The variance of $530,775 for departmental ordinary annual services primarily represents the timing difference of payments to suppliers or employees.

4The administered ordinary annual services items variance of $2,601,359 relates to the utilisation of retained funding from 2019 during 2020 (the former section 11 of the Appropriation Acts).
