Introduction

Purpose of the Supplementary Estimates of Appropriations and Supporting Information

The Supplementary Estimates of Appropriations and Supporting Information (the Supplementary Estimates)provides members of Parliament with details of the terms of changes to existing appropriations and of new appropriations proposed since the Estimates for 2010/11 were finalised. The SupplementaryEstimates also shows proposed changes to departmental net asset balances.

While many of the appropriation and net asset balance changes will have already been given effect through the advance authority of Imprest Supply, they must still be specified in an Appropriation Act for the current financial year.

The Supplementary Estimates is presented to the House of Representatives at the same time as the Government introduces a second or subsequent Appropriations Bill for the current financial year.

Purpose and Nature of Appropriations

An appropriation is a statutory authority from Parliament allowing the Crown or an Office of Parliament to incur expenses or capital expenditure.

Neither the Crown nor an Office of Parliament can legally incur any expense or capital expenditure - as those terms are defined in the Public Finance Act 1989 (PFA) - unless it is expressly authorised by or under an Act of Parliament.

Limits Created by Appropriations

Each appropriation is allocated to, and managed as, one of six types of appropriation.

Each appropriation also has a defined scope that limits the uses or activities for which the expenses or capital expenditure can be incurred. The scope should be sufficient on its own to establish the nature and extent of the authority to incur expenses or capital expenditure. The wording of the appropriation scope should achieve the balance between being sufficiently precise to act as an effective constraint against non-authorised activities and not so specific that it inadvertently limits activity intended to be authorised.

In most cases an appropriation also limits the amount of expenses or capital expenditure that can be incurred, and the time period within which those expenses or capital expenditure can be incurred.

Aside from the very limited exclusions provided for in the PFA, the amount of expense or capital expenditure authorised by an appropriation is measured in accordance with generally accepted accounting practice.

Responsibility for Appropriations

Each appropriation is the responsibility of a designated Minister, who controls the right to use that appropriation within the limits authorised by Parliament. A department is also assigned to administer that appropriation in accordance with the Minister's wishes concerning its use.

A Vote is a group of appropriations (and can be a single appropriation) administered by a single department. Different appropriations within a Vote may be the responsibility of different Ministers.

Types of Appropriation

The PFA provides for six types of appropriation. Four appropriation types authorise the incurring of expenses; one type authorises the incurring of capital expenditure; the remaining type authorises both.

These appropriation types can be further differentiated by whether the expenses or capital expenditure are departmental or non-departmental transactions.

Types of Appropriation
Appropriation Type Transaction Status Description
Output Expenses Departmental Authorises expenses to be incurred by a department or an Office of Parliament in supplying a specified category of outputs (goods and services).
Non-Departmental Authorises expenses to be incurred by the Crown (excluding departments) in purchasing a specified category of outputs (goods and services) from Crown entities or other third parties.
Benefits and Other Unrequited Expenses Non-Departmental

Authorises expenses to be incurred by the Crown (excluding departments) in transferring resources (generally to individuals for their personal benefit) for which the Crown receives nothing directly in return.

Examples include the Unemployment Benefit, student allowances and various scholarships and awards.

Borrowing Expenses Departmental

Authorises the incurring of interest or other financing expenses for loans made to a department or an Office of Parliament, or public securities (undertakings that represent part of the public debt) issued by a department or an Office of Parliament.

In practice, limitations on the rights of departments to borrow or issue securities mean that these are likely to be incurred only by Offices of Parliament.

Non-Departmental

Authorises the incurring of interest or other financing expenses for loans made to the Crown (excluding departments), or public securities (undertakings that represent part of the public debt) issued by the Crown.

Crown debt management is centralised, which means that most debt-servicing expenses appear in Vote Finance.

Other Expenses Departmental

Authorises expenses to be incurred by a department or an Office of Parliament that are not either output expenses or borrowing expenses.

Other expenses should be used only for events that cannot be related back to output production, such as redundancy costs arising from a government decision to cease purchasing certain types of outputs, or a loss on sale of assets made surplus by departmental restructuring.

  Non-Departmental

Authorises expenses to be incurred by the Crown (excluding departments) that are not structured or managed as output expenses, benefits and other unrequited expenses, or borrowing expenses.

Other expenses is the residual appropriation type, which should not be used where an appropriation could be better classified or managed as one of the other appropriation types (eg, as output expenses).

Examples include disposal of an asset for less than market value, grants to community organisations, subscriptions for membership of international bodies and remuneration of independent statutory officers.

Capital expenditure Departmental Authorises capital expenditure to be incurred by a department or an Office of Parliament to acquire or develop assets for the use of the department.
Non-Departmental Authorises capital expenditure to be incurred by the Crown (excluding departments) to acquire or develop Crown assets, including the purchase of equity, or making a loan to a person or organisation that is not a department.
Expenses or Capital Expenditure Incurred by an Intelligence and Security Department Departmental Authorises both expenses and capital expenditure to be incurred by the New Zealand Security Intelligence Service or the Government Communications Security Bureau.

 

Types of Output Expense Appropriations

A number of variations are possible for output expense appropriations. In particular, the constraint on the amount of expense that can be incurred is not always a fixed sum; and an output expense appropriation can cover more than one class of outputs.

Types of Output Expense Appropriations
Output Expense Appropriation Type and Authority Description, Constraints on Form and Typical Application

Standard Output Expense Appropriation

(section 7(1)(a), Public Finance Act 1989)

Departmental or non-departmental:  Authorises a department or an Office of Parliament to incur expenses in supplying a specified class of outputs (goods and services), or the Crown (excluding departments) to incur expenses to purchase a specified class of outputs.

Annual or multi-year:  The authority lapses at the end of the financial year or multi-year period specified.

Single output class only:  The scope is limited to a single class of outputs (defined as a grouping of similar outputs).

Amount limited by Appropriation Act: The amount of a standard output expense appropriation is limited to a set amount of New Zealand dollars specified in an Appropriation Act.

Typical application:  The normal or default form for an output expense appropriation, used for a wide range of outputs for which the flexibility offered by the other types of output expense appropriation is not required.

Multi-Class Output Expense Appropriation (MCOA)

(section 7(3)(b), Public Finance Act 1989)

Departmental or non-departmental:  Authorises a department or an Office of Parliament to incur expenses in supplying more than one specified class of outputs (goods and services), or the Crown (excluding departments) to incur expenses to purchase more than one specified class of outputs.

A proposed MCOA must be approved by the Minister of Finance before it is presented in the Estimates.  The information supporting the Estimates must explain why the Minister has allowed those classes of outputs to be grouped in one appropriation.

Annual or multi-year:  The authority lapses at the end of the financial year or multi-year period specified.

Multiple output classes:  The scope of an MCOA is determined by the combined scope of each of the output classes included in that appropriation.

Amount limited by Appropriation Act:  The amount of an MCOA is limited to a set amount of New Zealand dollars specified in an Appropriation Act.  The amount of expense that can be incurred in relation to each component output class is flexible within the total amount of the MCOA, although expenses must be separately forecast and reported for each individual class in the Estimates, Information Supporting the Estimates and the department's annual report.

Typical application:  An MCOA is used where it is appropriate to give the responsible Minister or department ongoing discretion over the output mix across two or more classes of outputs.  Such discretion will most commonly be sought where the output classes contribute to a common outcome, or use a common or closely related set of inputs or processes, and the circumstances that determine the appropriate output choice or mix are likely to vary during the appropriation period.

Revenue-Dependent Appropriations (RDA)

(section 21(1), Public Finance Act 1989)

Departmental only:  Authorises a department or an Office of Parliament to incur expenses in supplying a specified class of outputs (goods and services) that are not paid for directly by the Crown.

A proposed RDA must be approved by the Minister of Finance, before it is presented in the Estimates.  Each class of outputs for which an RDA is approved is listed in an Appropriation Act for the relevant financial year.

Annual only:  The authority lapses at the end of the financial year specified.

Single output class only:  The scope of an RDA is limited to a single class of outputs (defined as a grouping of similar outputs).

Amount limited by amount of revenue earned:  The amount of an RDA is limited tothe amount of revenue earned by a department or an Office of Parliament from other departments or from parties other than the Crown during a financial year.  The Minister of Finance can further direct a department to incur expenses to a level lower than the amount of revenue earned, though such directions are rare.

Typical application:  An RDA provides flexibility to respond to unanticipated changes in the level of external demand for a class of outputs, where the full cost of the outputs is met by external parties and not the Crown.

Department-to-Department Appropriations (DDA)

(section 20(2), Public Finance Act 1989)

Departmental only:  Authorises a department or an Office of Parliament to incur expenses in supplying specified outputs (goods and services) paid for by another department.

Creation of a DDA requires an agreement between two departments.  Implicitly, it also requires the approval of the Minister who will become responsible for the appropriation - namely, the Minister responsible for the supplying department - as the agreement has implications for the scope and risk of that department's operations.

Annual or multi-year:  The period of a DDA will depend on the negotiated terms of the agreement.

Single or multiple output class(es):  The scope of a DDA (and hence whether it covers one or more classes of outputs) will depend on the way in which it is to be delivered.  In most cases, an agreement that provides for a range of different outputs is better treated as creating several single-class DDAs.

Amount limited by departmental agreement:  The amount of a DDA is limited to either the amount of revenue earned from the commissioning department, or the cost incurred by the supplying department in providing those outputs (if that cost is less than the amount of revenue earned under the agreement).

Typical application:  DDAs are intended to reduce barriers to make collaboration between departments easier by reducing the time and effort otherwise required to obtain or  adjust the relevant appropriations, while also allowing a commissioning department to retain full control over the resources it provides.

The use of a DDA is not confined to bilateral agreements.  A set of related DDAs could be used to enable one department to co-ordinate and manage the work of several departments that must work together contribute to providing an integrated service to third parties, or to pool contributions from several departments to enable another department to provide a specific service to or on behalf of those departments.

 

Appropriation Period

The length of the appropriation period affects how appropriations are presented in the Estimates and Supplementary Estimates. Three different kinds of appropriation can be distinguished on the basis of period - annual and multi-year (as referred to in the above table on the types of output expense appropriations), and permanent:

  • Annual Appropriations - Most appropriations listed in the Estimates and Supplementary Estimates allow expenses or capital expenditure to be incurred only during a particular financial year. The annual amounts, for which parliamentary authority is normally sought, are shown in bold type in Details of Annual and Permanent Appropriations in the Estimates and Supplementary Estimates for each Vote. The amounts for RDAs and annual DDAs are forecasts only, and so are not shown in bold type.
  • Multi-Year Appropriations (MYAs) - The PFA also permits appropriations that allow expenses or capital expenditure to be incurred during a specified period that spans the whole or parts of more than one financial year, but no more than five financial years. The details of each MYA, including its commencement date and expiry date, are specified in Details of Multi-Year Appropriations in the Estimates and Supplementary Estimates for relevant Votes.
  • Permanent Appropriations (sometimes referred to as permanent legislative authorities or PLAs) -Permanent appropriations are authorised by legislation other than an Appropriation Act and continue in effect until revoked by Parliament. Generally the authorising legislation will impose limits on the scope of the appropriation and not its amount. For those appropriations with limits set in cash terms, section 11(2) of the PFA requires that they be reported on an accrual basis. The usual legislative wording allows for expenses or capital expenditure to be incurred for the purpose specified in the legislation “without further appropriation than this section”. Details of permanent appropriations are included in Details of Annual and Permanent Appropriations in the Estimates and Supplementary Estimates for each Vote for completeness, though the amount specified is a forecast rather than a limit. The amounts of permanent appropriations are therefore not shown in bold type. The scope of a permanent appropriation will reference the relevant section of the authorising legislation.

Types of Crown Revenue and Capital Receipts

An operating and capital split applies to Crown revenue and receipts. The following table outlines the three revenue/receipt types:

Types of Crown Revenue and Capital Receipts
Crown Revenue Type Transaction Type Description
Tax Revenue Non-Departmental Tax payable to the Crown, such as Income Tax, GST and Fringe Benefit Tax
Non-Tax Revenue Non-Departmental Revenue earned by the Crown from its investing and other operating activities.  Examples include interest income, capital charges and dividends from State-owned enterprises.
Capital Receipts Non-Departmental

Capital received by the Crown:

  • when loans are raised (which appear in Vote Finance) or repayments of principal are made on debts owed to the Crown (for example, in Vote Social Development), or
  • when capital assets are sold.

Types of Movements in Departmental Net Asset Balances

Information on types of movements in each department's net asset balance appears at the end of the Vote containing appropriations that belong to a department's Responsible Minister. The movements reconcile a department's estimated opening and projected closing net asset balances. The projected closing net asset balance sets an upper bound on the amount of the Crown's accumulated net investment in a department throughout the financial year.

Types of Movements in Departmental Net Asset Balances
Movement Type Description
Capital Injections Investment by the Crown in a department, which increases the department's closing net asset balance.
Capital Withdrawals Returns of capital by a department to the Crown, which reduce the department's closing net asset balance.
Surplus to be Retained / (Deficit Incurred) The net surplus forecast to be retained by a department from its operations for a financial year in accordance with section 22(1) of the PFA, or the forecast deficit for the department.  A surplus or deficit will, respectively, increase or decrease the department's closing net asset balance.
Other Movements Any other adjustment required to ensure that the amount of a department's authorised net asset balance is not a forecast but an upper bound within which the department must operate throughout the financial year.  Such movements may include offsets to forecast deficits (if any), to ensure that net assets remain within approved limits should the deficit be less than forecast.  Other movements may include offsets to forecast withdrawals, to ensure that net assets remain within approved limits until the capital is withdrawn.

Guide to Reading the Supplementary Estimates of Appropriations and Supporting Information

The Supplementary Estimates of Appropriation and Supporting Information contain this Introduction, a series of Summary Tables and, for each Vote, details of appropriations, schedules of departmental net asset balances, and supporting information.

Votes that do not require any changes to the Estimates for the current financial year are not included in this document. However, their appropriation details are included in the Summary Tables.

Summary Tables

The Summary Tables provide a high-level perspective and comparative “ready reference” for all appropriations (annual, permanent and multi-year). They cover:

  • aggregates for all Votes - showing totals for the Estimates and Supplementary Estimates for 2010/11 with respect to each type of appropriation and of Crown revenue and capital receipts
  • each appropriation type and total appropriations for each Vote - showing totals of the Estimates and Supplementary Estimates for 2010/11
  • current-year revenue-dependent appropriations
  • multi-year appropriations by Vote, appropriation type and period
  • Crown revenue and Crown capital receipts for 2010/11 associated with each Vote, and
  • net assets of each department - showing the closing balance for 2010/11.

For inclusion in the Summary Tables, MYAs are converted into actual or forecast amounts for each financial year.

Layout of Each Vote

Supplementary Estimates

The Supplementary Estimates presents Votes in alphabetic order. The title page for each Vote for which there are changes specifies the Minister(s) responsible for existing and proposed appropriations in the Vote, the administering department for the Vote, and the Responsible Minister for that department. This is followed by:

  • Details of Appropriations - Tables containing information on each appropriation referred to in the Appropriation (2010/11 Estimates) Act 2010 and Appropriation (2010/11 Supplementary Estimates) Bill, and on other current appropriations:
    • Details of Annual and Permanent Appropriations - The type, title, scope and amount of each annual and permanent appropriation. The annual amounts, for which parliamentary authorisation is sought in the Appropriation (2010/11 Supplementary Estimates) Bill, are shown in bold type.
    • Details of Multi-Year Appropriations (MYAs) - The type, title, scope and amount of each MYA, including any adjustments since originally appropriated, amounts incurred or estimated for particular years, and the estimated remaining balance.
  • Details of Projected Movements in Departmental Net Assets - Information on the opening and closing balances of, and movements in, the net assets of each department is included in the Vote that contains appropriations belonging to a department's Responsible Minister.

Supporting Information

The Supporting Information for each Vote follows immediately after the Supplementary Estimates for that Vote.

Information supporting changes in existing appropriations and new appropriations in each Vote is organised as follows:

  • Part 1 - Summary of the Vote - A Summary of the Financial Activity and a reconciliation of any changes in the Structure or classification of appropriations.
  • Part 2 - Details and Expected Performance for Output Expenses
  • Part 3 - Details for Benefits and Other Unrequited Expenses
  • Part 4 - Details for Borrowing Expenses
  • Part 5 - Details and Expected Results for Other Expenses
  • Part 6 - Details and Expected Results for Capital Expenditure

Parts 2 to 6 contain sub-parts for performance information for appropriations related to departmental and non-departmental transactions. This information includes:

  • For existing appropriations that are increased or decreased - the reasons for that change
  • For new appropriations -
    • intended impacts, outcomes and objectives
    • details of expenses and revenue for departmental output expenses appropriations, and of expenses or expenditure for other appropriations
    • reasons for changes, and
    • output performance measures and standards for output expense appropriations.

If particular information is not applicable to a Vote or a specific appropriation or type, or is otherwise unavailable, the relevant heading is not included.

Reasons for Change in Appropriation

This appropriation increased by $2,000 to $4.694 million in 2010/11. The increase relates to:

  • a forecast change for the Government Superannuation Fund employer contribution rate ($13,000)
  • an expenditure transfer from 2009/10 for a departmental transformation project ($8,000).

This is partially offset by a decrease in funding relating to an expenditure transfer to outyears for departmental transformation projects ($19,000).

Reasons for Change in Appropriation

This appropriation will decrease by $85,000 to $1.714 million in 2010/11. This is due to a reallocation of revenue Crown funded resources between output expenses ($88,000) and reduced services to other public sector agencies ($2,000).

Reasons for Change in Appropriation

This appropriation will increase by $1.498 million to $8.264 million in 2010/11. This is due to: a reallocation of revenue Crown funded resources between output expenses ($2.256 million); increase in Government Superannuation Fund employer contributions from 6% to 10.7% funded from revenue Crown ($7,000); an expense transfer from 2009/10 for Primary Growth Partnership (PGP) initiative ($265,000); and increase in services to other public sector agencies ($27,000). These changes are offset by an expense transfer to 2011/12 for PGP initiative ($1.045 million) and a decrease in third party funded activity ($12,000).

Public Broadcasting Services (M8)

Total Appropriation 161,820 (10,128) 151,692

Reasons for Change in Appropriation

The appropriation decreased by $10.128 million in 2010/11 because of two expense transfers.

Firstly, In 2007 $25 million was allocated to Freeview for Digital television platform funding. Costs were expected to amount to $5 million per year over five years; however, in the first two years the full $5 million allocated was not required. Funding was transferred as far as possible into outyears. In 2010/11 the remaining $4.628 million of additional funding was transferred into 2011/12 to allow support for the Freeview platform to continue during the period of digital switchover.

Secondly, In April 2010 the government agreed to TVNZ's proposal to commercialise one of two advertising-free digital channels that were being directly funded through the Ministry for Culture and Heritage. Funding had been appropriated for the two channels TVNZ 6 and 7 until 30 June 2012. With the commercialisation of 6, the remaining balance of the funding has been applied to TVNZ 7 only, and the payment schedule for the period 1 March 2011 - 30 June 2012 was revised accordingly resulting in $5.500 million being transferred from 2010/11 into 2011/12.

Reasons for Change in Appropriation

Due to a favourable foreign exchange movement, the full appropriation was not required during 2010/11. The Commonwealth War Graves appropriation funding was re-prioritised to partially fund the establishment of a World War One commemorations office to co-ordinate New Zealand's WW1 commemorations over the next 5 years (funded via the Departmental Output Expense - Heritage Services). This required the surplus funding to be not only transferred between appropriations but also transferred from 2010/11 into 2011/12.

Reasons for Change in Appropriation

This appropriation will decrease by $314,000 to $11.097 million in 2010/11. This is due to: a reallocation of revenue Crown funded resources between output expenses ($377,000); a decrease in third party funded activity ($147,000); and reduced services to other public sector agencies ($69,000). These changes are offset by: an increase in Government Superannuation Fund employer contributions from 6% to 10.7% funded from revenue Crown ($29,000); and an expense transfer from 2009/10 to meet cost of amalgamation of New Zealand Food Safety Authority ($250,000).

Reasons for Change in Appropriation

This appropriation will increase by $4.997 million to $59.359 million in 2010/11. This is due to: a reallocation of revenue Crown funded resources between output expenses ($3.560 million); an expense transfer from 2009/10 for the write-down of foot and mouth vaccine ($2.200 million); an increase in Government Superannuation Fund employer contributions from 6% to 10.7% funded from revenue Crown ($45,000); transfer from non-departmental other expense 'Response to kiwifruit disease Pseudomonas syringae pv. actinidiae' for MAF's direct response costs ($2.500 million); and an expense transfer from 2009/10 for the National Animal Identification and Traceability (NAIT) project ($400,000). These changes are offset by: a saving due to Cabinets decision to discontinue the elimination programme for the Mediterranean fanworm ($838,000); a decrease in third party funded activity ($1.445 million); reduced services to other public sector agencies ($72,000); and an expense transfer to 2011/12 for the NAIT project ($1.353 million).

It is MAF's responsibility to limit (as much as is practical) the damage caused by a biosecurity risk that has breached New Zealand's borders.      
Urgent measures in either the investigation or early response phase will eliminate the biosecurity risk in at least 55 percent of new incursions. New measure 55% 55%

Long Term Management

     
Where response activities have failed to eradicate a pest of national significance, MAF may implement and lead a Long Term Management (LTM) Programme. MAF may also implement a LTM programme for a pest that has been established in NZ for some time, where pest behaviour or spread has resulted in increased and emerging risks at a national scale. LTM programmes generally aim to slow the spread of pests and minimise their impacts.      
Number of long term management programmes in place. New measure 2 2
The on-ground delivery of Long Term Management programmes is largely undertaken by partner agencies and organisations, therefore it is important to have a shared understanding of programme outcomes, and clearly identified critical milestones and deliverables so that MAF and partners achieve those outcomes.      
All critical long term management programmes milestones are achieved. New measure 100% 100%
The involvement and ongoing support of other pest management agencies and organisations is critical to the successful delivery of Long Term Management programmes within a collective model. Annual measurement of the didymo and kauri dieback programmes will identify the level of public confidence with the programme.      
Programme partners are satisfied with the programme, MAF's leadership of the programme, and the relationships between partners. New measure 75% 75%
Long Term Management programmes are underpinned by behaviour change messaging to target audiences, eg, river or forest users. Annual didymo programme surveys show a high degree of awareness and compliance with the Check Clean Dry message. The kauri dieback programme is currently being established and an initial benchmarking survey has indicated a relatively low level, eg, 20 - 30%, of awareness and compliance with hygiene messages.

This appropriation incurred a one-off cost of $27.873 million as a result of milestones being met by the Eden Park Redevelopment Board (EPRB) via a loan agreement with the Crown. Upon EPRB meeting these milestones, the loan would be forgiven and that it would become revenue to the EPRB and the GST would be payable. The Crown needs to fund this GST component as an Input Tax and the EPDB will be paying the Output Tax to the Inland Revenue Department. This impact is therefore neutral to the Crown.

Reasons for Change in Appropriation

  • efficiency savings of $274,000 in 2010/11 to transfer into 2011/12 to address emerging cost pressures for crown balance sheet work, and

Efficiencies have also been made in the Budget production process. The increase in Policy Advice: Fiscal and Macroeconomic relates to Crown Balance Sheet advice which, given its advisory nature and focus on ownership mix was reclassified from the Management of Liabilities, Claims Against the Crown and Crown Properties output class.

Policy Advice: State Sector Performance 280 388 668

Reasons for Change in Appropriation

This multi-class expense appropriation has decreased overall due to range of decreases greater than the increases during the year.

Increases are due to:

  • new funding of $440,000 was provided in Policy Advice: State Sector Performance for Phase two of the Better Administration and Support Services project. This was funded through recoveries from other agencies, and
  • a reallocation of resources to reflect Ministerial priorities in 2010/11 output plan. Policy Advice: Economic Performance was given a higher level of resource to deliver on additional work eg, Savings Working Group, and other priority areas including Regulation, Tax Strategy and Highly Skilled Workforce. State Sector Performance was increased to fund priority projects and fiscal risks around State sector reform work.

Decreases are due to:

  • identified efficiency savings of $940,000 in 2010/11 to transfer into 2011/12 to address emerging cost pressures in crown balance sheet work
  • funds being returned to the Crown from New Zealand Export Credit Office. This resulted from slower than expected deal flow giving rise to less third-party costs, such as legal and surety bond fees associated with these deals, and
  • reclassification of activities. The Crown Balance Sheet work on Vote Finance entities was previously funded from Management of Liabilities, Claims Against the Crown and Crown Properties. This work was reclassified into Policy Advice: Fiscal and Macroeconomic.

Reasons for Change in Appropriation

The increase in the departmental capital expenditure of $82,000 mainly relates to:

  • a delay in the redevelopment of the Treasury's human resource and financial systems with the financial system replacement now expected in 2011/12 and timing is still unconfirmed for the human resource system replacement, and
  • delay in the development of the NZDMO systems.

This is offset by expected improvements to the security systems and fitout alterations in Treasury to accommodate the scoping work on the mixed ownership model.
