Appropriation Act (No. 1) 2015-2016

No. 76, 2015

 

 

 

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

[Assented to 26 June 2015]

The Parliament of Australia enacts:

Part 1Preliminary

  

1  Short title

                   This Act may be cited as the Appropriation Act (No. 1) 2015‑2016.

2  Commencement

                   This Act commences on the day this Act receives the Royal Assent.

3  Definitions

                   In this Act:

administered item means an amount set out in Schedule 1 opposite an outcome for a non‑corporate entity under the heading “Administered”.

corporate entity means:

                     (a)  a corporate Commonwealth entity within the meaning of the Public Governance, Performance and Accountability Act 2013; or

                     (b)  a Commonwealth company within the meaning of that Act.

corporate entity item means the total amount set out in Schedule 1 in relation to a corporate entity under the heading “Administered”.

Note:          The amounts set out opposite outcomes for corporate entities, under the heading “Administered”, 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.

current year means the financial year ending on 30 June 2016.

departmental item means the total amount set out in Schedule 1 in relation to a non‑corporate entity under the heading “Departmental”.

Note:          The amounts set out opposite outcomes, under the heading “Departmental”, 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 any of the following:

                     (a)  an administered item;

                     (b)  a corporate entity item;

                     (c)  a departmental item.

non‑corporate entity means:

                     (a)  a non‑corporate Commonwealth entity within the meaning of the Public Governance, Performance and Accountability Act 2013; or

                     (b)  the High Court.

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.

portfolio statements means the Portfolio Budget Statements.

special account has the same meaning as in the Public Governance, Performance and Accountability Act 2013.

4  Portfolio statements

                   The portfolio statements are 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 which provides that the material that may be considered in the interpretation of a provision of an Act includes any document that is declared by the Act to be a relevant document.

5  Notional transactions between entities that are part of the Commonwealth

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

Note:          This section applies, for example, to a “payment” between non‑corporate entities 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 non‑corporate entity, even though no payment is actually made from the Consolidated Revenue Fund. This is consistent with section 76 of the Public Governance, Performance and Accountability Act 2013.

Part 2Appropriation items

  

6  Summary of appropriations

                   The total of the items specified in Schedule 1 is $80,966,414,000.

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

Note 2:       Sections 74 to 75 of the Public Governance, Performance and Accountability Act 2013 also provide for the adjustment of amounts appropriated by this Act.

7  Departmental items

                   The amount specified in a departmental item for a non‑corporate entity may be applied for the departmental expenditure of the entity.

8  Administered items

             (1)  The amount specified in an administered item for an outcome for a non‑corporate entity may be applied for expenditure for the purpose of contributing to achieving that outcome.

             (2)  If the portfolio 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  Corporate entity items

             (1)  The amount specified in a corporate entity item for a corporate entity may be paid to the entity to be applied for the purposes of the entity.

             (2)  If:

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

                     (b)  Schedule 1 contains a corporate entity item for that entity;

then the entity must be paid the full amount specified in the item.

Part 3Advance to the Finance Minister

  

10  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.

Part 4Miscellaneous

  

11  Crediting amounts to special accounts

                   If any of the purposes of a special account is a purpose that is covered by an item (whether or not the item expressly refers to the special account), then amounts may be debited against the appropriation for that item and credited to that special account.

12  Appropriation of the Consolidated Revenue Fund

                   The Consolidated Revenue Fund is appropriated as necessary for the purposes of this Act, including the operation of this Act as affected by the Public Governance, Performance and Accountability Act 2013.

13  Repeal of this Act

                   This Act is repealed at the start of 1 July 2018.
