Section 3 : Outcomes-07

This section explains how the resources identified in Section 2 will be used to deliver outputs and administered items to contribute to the one outcome for the NCA.

3.1 Summary of outcomes, outputs and administered items

OUTCOMES AND OUTPUTS GROUPS

The NCA's outputs, as shown on the next page, contribute to the Portfolio outcome of Assisting regions to manage their own futures. The NCA contributes to this outcome by achieving a National Capital which symbolises Australia's heritage, values and aspirations, is internationally recognised, and worthy of pride by Australians (the intermediate outcome).

Financial details for the Portfolio outcome by outputs appear in Figure 3.1 and Table 3.1 while non-financial information for the outcome and outputs is provided under the heading Performance Information.

OUTPUT COST ATTRIBUTION

Most costs are directly attributed to outputs. The NCA allocates indirect output costs to each output by using the most appropriate cost driver, either staff numbers or floor space.

CHANGES TO OUTCOMES AND OUTPUTS

There have been no changes to the output structure from the 2005 06 PBS.
