Total expenditure for 2018–19 was $34.5 million, compared to a total expenditure of $31.7 million recorded in 2017–18, this reflects an increase of $2.8 million. However, total expenditure was 5 per cent lower than the budgeted expenditure for 2018–19 due to reduced employee expenses and office expenditure.
Employee expenses made up 76 per cent of total expenditure, supplier costs made up 22 per cent and depreciation and amortisation made up 2 per cent. Compared to the expenditure breakdown of 77 per cent, 20 per cent and 3 per cent for 2017–18, this reflects a stable cost structure between financial years.
