Contributions to Outcome 4

Programme 4.1: Services to territories

The objective, deliverables and key performance indicators for Programme 4.1 are unchanged from those published in the 2013–14 DRALGAS PB Statements.

Programme 4.1 Expenses
The fluctuation in expenses from one year to the next is due mainly to the termination of the ‘Norfolk Island—reforms and services’ administered item in 2013–14 and the changing profile of depreciation expenses.
