Note:          This table relates only to the provisions of this Act as originally enacted. It will not be amended to deal with any later amendments of this Act.

             (2)  Any information in column 3 of the table is not part of this Act. Information may be inserted in this column, or information in it may be edited, in any published version of this Act.

3  Definitions

             (1)  In this Act:

administered assets and liabilities item means an amount set out in Schedule 1 in relation to a Parliamentary Department opposite the heading “Administered Assets and Liabilities”.

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

Appropriation (Parliamentary Departments) Bill (No. 1) 2022‑2023 means the Bill with that name introduced into the 47th Parliament.

departmental item means the total amount set out in Schedule 1 in relation to a Parliamentary Department 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.

item means any of the following:

                     (a)  a departmental item;

                     (b)  an administered item;

                     (c)  an administered assets and liabilities item;

                     (d)  an other 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.

Note:          Each Parliamentary Department is a non‑corporate Commonwealth entity for the purposes of the Public Governance, Performance and Accountability Act 2013.

other departmental item means an amount set out in Schedule 1 in relation to a Parliamentary Department opposite the heading “Equity Injections”.

Parliamentary Department means any of the following:

                     (a)  the Department of the Senate;

                     (b)  the Department of the House of Representatives;

                     (c)  the Department of Parliamentary Services;

                     (d)  the Parliamentary Budget Office.

Portfolio Budget Statements means the Portfolio Budget Statements tabled in the Senate or the House of Representatives in relation to the Appropriation (Parliamentary Departments) Bill (No. 1) 2022‑2023.

portfolio statements means the Portfolio Budget Statements.

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

             (2)  To avoid doubt, for the purposes of other laws this Act is to be treated as an Appropriation Act.

4  Portfolio statements

             (1)  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.

             (2)  For the purposes of this Act and the Appropriation (Parliamentary Departments) Act (No. 1) 2022‑2023, the portfolio statements are taken to cover both the Bill for this Act and the Appropriation (Parliamentary Departments) Bill (No. 1) 2022‑2023.

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 $155,107,000.

7  Departmental items

                   The amount specified in a departmental item for a Parliamentary Department may be applied for the departmental expenditure of the Parliamentary Department.

8  Administered items

             (1)  The amount specified in an administered item for an outcome for a Parliamentary Department 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  Administered assets and liabilities items

             (1)  The amount specified in an administered assets and liabilities item for a Parliamentary Department may be applied for expenditure for the purpose of contributing to achieving any outcome specified in Schedule 1 for the Parliamentary Department.

             (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.

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