Estimates of Appropriations for the Government of New Zealand for the Year Ending 30 June 2005

The Estimates contain requests from Vote Ministers for appropriations. An appropriation provides a Vote Minister with authority to incur expenditure, expenses or liabilities. It establishes the maximum expense, liability or expenditure that can be incurred.

Estimates include:

  • how appropriations will be spent;
  • significant changes in the Vote;
  • how performance will be measured;
  • any differences from previous years.

The Public Finance Act 1989 requires that the Estimates accompany the Appropriation (2004/2005 Estimates) Bill, which is the first Appropriation Bill relating to 2004/2005 financial year. The Bill must be passed within three months of delivery of the Budget.
