Expenses and capital expenditure approved under section 26B of the Public Finance Act 1989

SuperGold Card – public transport concessions for cardholders

Demand has meant expenditure exceeded the funding available. This resulted in actual costs exceeding those appropriated by $16,497. This unappropriated expenditure was approved in advance by the Minister of Finance under section 26B of the Public Finance Act 1989.

Expenses and capital expenditure incurred in excess of appropriation

Rail – KiwiRail equity injection

Seven parcels of property were sold for a total of $1,535,146, which increased the equity of KiwiRail Holdings Ltd. An appropriation was required for this but none was in place. An appropriation was subsequently established so that further property sales were not unappropriated.

Expenses and capital expenditure incurred without appropriation or outside scope or period of appropriation

Rail – KiwiRail Holdings Limited Loans

A loan of $10.75 million from the Crown to KiwiRail Holdings Limited fell due on 15 April 2015 and was rolled over, which required an appropriation. At the time of the transaction, an appropriation was in place, but the scope of the appropriation only permitted loans to the New Zealand Railways Corporation, and so the transaction was outside the scope. The scope has since been corrected.
