Section 2 : Agency Resources for 2005-06

2.1 Appropriations and other resources

Total appropriation and other revenue to be received by DOTARS in 2005-06 is $4 253.0m, comprising $4 016.1m for administered appropriation, $202.9m for departmental appropriation, $8.8m for administered revenue from independent sources, $3.9m for departmental revenue from independent sources, $11.2m for administered capital and $10.1m for departmental capital. Details of these appropriations are provided at Table 2.1.

DOTARS administered and departmental appropriations and other revenue in 2005-06 have increased by $204.8m from the estimated actual for 2004-05, primarily as a result of the movement of appropriations between years for administered programmes, measures announced in, and preceding, the 2005-06 Budget, and general changes in the funding profile of several administered programmes.

DOTARS appropriation for 2005-06 for each portfolio outcome, and the allocation between departmental and administered, is reflected in the following charts.
