Preliminary
1              Name
This Instrument is the Determination to Reduce Administered Appropriations (No. 1 of 2011-2012).
2              Commencement
This Determination commences on the day on which it is made.
3              Legislative Authority
Subsection 11(2)(b) of Appropriation Act (No. 1) 2009-2010, subsection 11(2)(b) of Appropriation Act (No. 3) 2009-2010, subsection 11(2)(b) of Appropriation Act (No. 1) 2008-2009, subsection 12(2)(b) of Appropriation Act (No. 2) 2008-2009, and subsection 11(2)(b) of Appropriation Act (No. 5) 2008-2009, enable the Minister for Finance and Deregulation (Finance Minister) to make a determination reducing an administered item, or a State, ACT, NT and local government item, for an agency to the required amount specified in the determination. The provisions were included in the Annual Appropriation Acts to allow the Finance Minister to determine that a required amount published in the annual report of an agency is taken to be the required amount specified in the determination. The power in subsection 11(2)(b) and subsection 12(2)(b) is to ensure that the amount published in an agency annual report for the administered item or the State, ACT, NT and local government item can be changed, if, for example, the amount is erroneous or requires updating after agency annual reports are published.
Subsection 8(1)(b) of Appropriation Act (No. 1) 2007-2008, subsection 8(1)(b) of Appropriation Act (No. 2) 2007-2008, subsection 8(1)(b) of Appropriation Act (No. 1) 2006-2007, subsection 8(1)(b) of Appropriation Act (No. 1) 2005-2006, and subsection 8(1)(b) of Appropriation Act (No. 1) 2004-2005, enable the Finance Minister to determine an amount having regard to the expenses incurred by the entity in the current year in relation to the administered item. The provisions were included in the Annual Appropriations Acts to allow the Finance Minister to issue out of the Consolidated Revenue Fund amounts that do not exceed, in total, the lesser of the amount specified in the item and the amount determined by the Finance Minister in relation to the item.
4              Purpose
This Determination reduces the relevant appropriation items to the required amounts specified for the agencies listed in the Schedules. The required amount in column 5 of each item applies as if it is the amount specified in the relevant agency annual report or in the case of Appropriation Act (No. 1) 2007-2008, Appropriation Act (No. 2) 2007-2008, Appropriation Act (No. 1) 2006-2007, Appropriation Act (No. 1) 2005-2006, and Appropriation Act (No. 1) 2004-2005, the total accrued administered expenses of the agency.
5              Notes
The Schedules contain tables listing the relevant agency, appropriation item and outcome number contained in the relevant annual Appropriation Act in column 1, the legislative authority in column 2, the amount appropriated by Parliament for the appropriation item in column 3, the amount appropriated by determination or annual report for the appropriation item in column 4, the new amount required by the agency for that appropriation item in column 5, and the amount reduced in column 6.
