Notes:

1. Departmental and Administered Capital Budgets are appropriated through Appropriation Act 1 and Act 3 (PAES). They form part of ordinary annual services, and are not separately identified in the Appropriation Acts.

2. Section 74 receipts. Includes $171k of receipts from PM&C for the maintenance of Kirribilli House on its behalf.

3. The favourable variance of $1.227m, regarding Departmental Ordinary annual services is primarily attributed to $509k of reallocated funding which the Office received during PAES which was not fully drawn down at year end. This is in addition to the additional section 74 receipts received during the financial year as explained in footnote 2 above.

Notes:

1. Departmental and Administered Capital Budgets are appropriated through Appropriation Act 1 and Act 3 (PAES). They form part of ordinary annual services, and are not separately identified in the Appropriation Acts.

2. Section 74 receipts. Includes $167k of receipts from PM&C for the maintenance of Kirribilli House on its behalf.

3. The favourable variance of $243k, regarding Departmental Ordinary annual services, is predominantly a result of the additional section 74 receipts received during the financial year as explained in footnote 2 above. The Administered Capital Budget was under applied by $449k as a result of delay in projects due to the timing of Act 3 (PAES) funding received in the later half of the financial year.
