An Act to appropriate money out of the Consolidated Revenue Fund for the ordinary annual services of the Government, and for related purposes

Part 1Preliminary

  

1  Short title [see Note 1]

                   This Act may be cited as the Appropriation Act (No. 1) 2008‑2009.

2  Commencement [see Note 1]

                   This Act commences on the day on which it receives the Royal Assent.

3  Definitions

                   In this Act:

administered item means an amount set out in Schedule 1 opposite an outcome for an Agency under the heading “Administered Expenses”.

Agency means:

                     (a)  an Agency within the meaning of the Financial Management and Accountability Act 1997; or

                     (b)  the High Court of Australia.

Agency Minister, in relation to an Agency, means the Minister responsible for the Agency.

CAC Act body means:

                     (a)  a Commonwealth authority within the meaning of the Commonwealth Authorities and Companies Act 1997; or

                     (b)  a Commonwealth company within the meaning of the Commonwealth Authorities and Companies Act 1997.

CAC Act body payment item means the total amount set out in Schedule 1 in relation to a CAC Act body under the heading “Administered Expenses”.

Note:          The amounts set out opposite outcomes for CAC Act bodies, under the heading “Administered Expenses”, are “notional”. They are not part of the item, and do not in any way restrict the scope of the expenditure authorised by the item.

Chief Executive has the same meaning as in the Financial Management and Accountability Act 1997.

current year means the financial year ending on 30 June 2009.

departmental item means the total amount set out in Schedule 1 in relation to an Agency under the heading “Departmental Outputs”.

Note:          The amounts set out opposite outcomes, under the heading “Departmental Outputs”, are “notional”. They are not part of the item, and do not in any way restrict the scope of the expenditure authorised by the item.

expenditure means payments for expenses, acquiring assets, making loans or paying liabilities.

Finance Minister means the Minister administering this Act.

item means an administered item, a CAC Act body payment item or a departmental item.

Portfolio Budget Statements means the Portfolio Budget Statements that were tabled in the Senate or the House of Representatives in relation to the Bill for this Act.

section 31 agreement means an agreement under section 31 of the Financial Management and Accountability Act 1997 (as in force immediately before the commencement of item 8 of Schedule 1 to the Financial Framework Legislation Amendment Act (No. 1) 2007).

Special Account has the same meaning as in the Financial Management and Accountability Act 1997.

4  Portfolio Budget Statements

                   The Portfolio Budget Statements are hereby declared to be relevant documents for the purposes of section 15AB of the Acts Interpretation Act 1901.

Note:          See paragraph 15AB(2)(g) of the Acts Interpretation Act 1901.

5  Notional payments, receipts etc.

                   For the purposes of this Act, notional transactions between Agencies are to be treated as if they were real transactions.

Note:          This section applies, for example, to a “payment” between Agencies that are both part of the Commonwealth. One of the effects of this section is that the payment will be debited from an appropriation for the paying Agency, even though no payment is actually made from the Consolidated Revenue Fund.


 

Part 2Appropriation items

  

6  Summary of appropriations

                   The total of the items specified in Schedule 1 is $60,874,689,000.

Note 1:       Items in Schedule 1 can be adjusted under Part 3 of this Act.

Note 2:       See also sections 30 to 32 of the Financial Management and Accountability Act 1997, which provide for adjustments of amounts appropriated by this Act.

7  Departmental items

                   The amount specified in a departmental item for an Agency may be applied for the departmental expenditure of the Agency.

Note:          The Finance Minister manages the expenditure of public money through the issue of drawing rights under the Financial Management and Accountability Act 1997.

8  Administered items

Note:          The Finance Minister manages the expenditure of public money through the issue of drawing rights under the Financial Management and Accountability Act 1997.

             (2)  If the Portfolio Budget Statements indicate that activities of a particular kind were intended to be treated as activities in respect of a particular outcome, then expenditure for the purpose of carrying out those activities is taken to be expenditure for the purpose of contributing to achieving the outcome.

9  CAC Act body payment items

             (1)  The amount specified in a CAC Act body payment item for a CAC Act body may be paid to the body to be applied for the purposes of the body.

Note:          The Finance Minister manages the expenditure of public money through the issue of drawing rights under the Financial Management and Accountability Act 1997.

             (2)  If:

                     (a)  an Act provides that a CAC Act body must be paid amounts that are appropriated by the Parliament for the purposes of the body; and

             (4)  The item is taken to be reduced in accordance with the determination.

             (5)  A request made under subsection (1) is not a legislative instrument.

11  Reducing administered items

                     (b)  the report specifies the amount required by the Agency in respect of an administered item for the Agency; and

                     (c)  the required amount is less than the amount of the item;

the item is taken to be reduced to the required amount.

             (2)  The Finance Minister may, by writing, determine that subsection (1):

                     (a)  does not apply in relation to the item; or

                     (b)  applies as if the amount specified in the annual report were the amount specified in the determination.

             (3)  A determination made under subsection (2) is a legislative instrument and, despite subsection 44(2) of the Legislative Instruments Act 2003, section 42 (disallowance) of that Act applies to the determination.

Note:          For Department, see subsection 19A(3) of the Acts Interpretation Act 1901.

             (2)  If a request is made under subsection (1), the Finance Minister may, by writing, determine that the item is to be reduced by the amount specified in the request.

             (3)  However, the determination has no effect to the extent that it would reduce the item below nil, after subtracting amounts that have been paid to the body in respect of the item.

             (4)  The item is taken to be reduced in accordance with the determination.

             (5)  Subsection 9(2) does not limit the reduction of a CAC Act body payment item under this section.

             (6)  A request made under subsection (1) is not a legislative instrument.

             (7)  A determination made under subsection (2) is a legislative instrument and, despite subsection 44(2) of the Legislative Instruments Act 2003, section 42 (disallowance) of that Act applies to the determination. However, Part 6 (sunsetting) of that Act does not apply to the determination.

13  Section 31 agreements

Departmental items

             (1)  If a section 31 agreement applies to a departmental item, then the amount specified in the item is taken to be increased in accordance with the agreement, and on the conditions set out in the agreement. The increase cannot be more than the relevant receipts covered by the agreement.

             (2)  For the purposes of section 31 of the Financial Management and Accountability Act 1997 (as in force immediately before the commencement of item 8 of Schedule 1 to the Financial Framework Legislation Amendment Act (No. 1) 2007), each departmental item is taken to be marked “net appropriation”.

Administered items

             (3)  If a section 31 agreement applies to an administered item, then the amount specified in the item is taken to be increased in accordance with the agreement, and on the conditions set out in the agreement. The increase cannot be more than the relevant receipts covered by the agreement.

             (4)  For the purposes of section 31 of the Financial Management and Accountability Act 1997 (as in force immediately before the commencement of item 8 of Schedule 1 to the Financial Framework Legislation Amendment Act (No. 1) 2007), the following administered items are taken to be marked “net appropriation”:

                     (a)  the administered items for outcomes 1 and 2 of AusAID;

                     (b)  the administered items for outcomes 1, 2, 3 and 4 of the Department of Families, Housing, Community Services and Indigenous Affairs.

14  Advance to the Finance Minister

             (1)  This section applies if the Finance Minister is satisfied that there is an urgent need for expenditure, in the current year, that is not provided for, or is insufficiently provided for, in Schedule 1:

                     (a)  because of an erroneous omission or understatement; or

                     (b)  because the expenditure was unforeseen until after the last day on which it was practicable to provide for it in the Bill for this Act before that Bill was introduced into the House of Representatives.

             (2)  This Act has effect as if Schedule 1 were amended, in accordance with a determination of the Finance Minister, to make provision for so much (if any) of the expenditure as the Finance Minister determines.

             (3)  The total of the amounts determined under subsection (2) cannot be more than $295 million.

             (4)  A determination made under subsection (2) is a legislative instrument, but neither section 42 (disallowance) nor Part 6 (sunsetting) of the Legislative Instruments Act 2003 applies to the determination.

15  Flexible Funding Pool receipts

the item is taken to be increased by the amount of the debit.

             (2)  The increase takes effect at the time the amount is entered in the accounts and records of the Agency.

             (3)  The amount may be applied by the Agency only in accordance with the conditions (if any) set out in the determination.

             (4)  A determination made for the purposes of paragraph (1)(b) is a legislative instrument, but neither section 42 (disallowance) nor Part 6 (sunsetting) of the Legislative Instruments Act 2003 applies to the determination.

16  Comcover receipts
