In the 2021-22 financial year there:

  • were no instances of expenditure incurred in excess of appropriation (2021-21: nil).
  • were no instances of expenditure incurred outside of appropriation (2020-21: it was identified that Paid Parental Leave Payments had been incurred outside appropriation from 2015-16 to 2020-21 for a total value of $7.55 million).
  • was 1 instance of an expense incurred without prior Cabinet authority to use imprest supply: Resurgence Support Payment (2020-21: nil).

We have identified a breach for the 'COVID-19 Resurgence Support Payment' appropriation. An in-principle expense transfer of 'COVID-19 Resurgence Support Payment' appropriation funds from 2020-21 to 2021-22 was not covered by the parliamentary authorisation provided by the Imprest Supply (First for 2021–22) Act. This was not remedied until 16 July 2021.

Consequently, any spending between 1 July 2021 and 15 July 2021 did not have the necessary authorisation and was therefore unappropriated. There have been no subsequent breaches for this appropriation since 16 July 2021.

Amount without or exceeding appropriation 1 July 2021 to 15 July 2021.
Expenses type and appropriation name Amount without or exceeding appropriation 1 July 2021 to 15 July 2021 ($000)
Non-departmental other expenses: COVID-19 Resurgence Support Payment $4,768
