These funds were transferred to the Portolfio Department to drawdown on behalf of the Agency. Refer Note 1.2.

Footnote4 In the 2014 to 15 financial year, the Government imposed a targeted savings measure onto the Agency totalling $7,000. The determination reduces Appropriation Act No. 1 2014 to 15 by $7,000.

Notes:

Footnote1 Appropriations reduced under Appropriation Acts (No. 1,3,5) 2013-14: sections 10, 11 and 12 and under Appropriation Acts (No. 2,4,6) 2013 to 14: sections 13 and 14. Departmental appropriations do not lapse at financial year-end. However, the responsible Minister may decide that part or all of a departmental appropriation is not required and request the Finance Minister to reduce that appropriation. The reduction in the appropriation is effected by the Finance Minister’s determination and is disallowable by Parliament. In the 2012-13 financial year, the Government imposed both a targeted savings measure and a fire services levy onto the Agency totalling $103,000. The determination was issued on 5 August 2013 by the Finance Minister to reduce Appropriation Act No. 1 2013 to 14 by $103,000.

Footnote2 The variance between total appropriation and appropriation applied in 2014 relates to net cost of services being lower than the 2013 to 14 appropriation.
