Notes:

1.   The increase in Sport and Recreation in 2021‑22 relates to the rollover and reallocation of unexpended appropriation from 2020‑21 for a number of projects including the Hobart Aquatic Centre ‑ Hydrotherapy Pool, Northern Regional Tennis Centre and Ticket to Play that experienced delays, and additional funding for 2021 election commitments. The decrease over the Forward Estimates primarily reflects the completion of 2021 election commitments and one‑off grants.

1.    The increase in Aboriginal Affairs in 2021‑22 primarily relates to the rollover of unexpended appropriation from 2020‑21 for initiatives including Closing the Gap and Resetting the Relationship with the Tasmanian Aboriginal Community, and Other initiatives funded in the 2021‑22 Budget.

2.    The increase in Women’s Policy and Housing Services in 2021‑22 reflects additional funding for 2021 election commitments and Other initiatives funded in the 2021‑22 Budget.

3.    The increase in Disability Services primarily reflects Tasmania’s contribution towards the NDIS and additional funding for the disability services that remain the responsibility of the Tasmanian Government.

4.    The increase in Veterans’ Affairs in 2021‑22 reflects additional funding for 2021 election commitments.

5.    The increase in Community Services in 2021‑22 primarily reflects additional funding for key deliverables, including Neighbourhood Houses and for the Prevention of Elder Abuse. The decrease over the Forward Estimates reflects the completion of key deliverables.

6.    The increase in Community Development in 2021‑22 primarily reflects additional funding for 2021 election commitments. The decrease over the Forward Estimates reflects the completion of 2021 election commitments.

7.    The decrease in the Community Support Fund and increase in Emergency Accommodation Support reflects a reclassification of the expenditure associated with the management of COVID‑19 hotel quarantine. Hotel quarantine expenditure relating to domestic travellers is reflected under the Community Support Fund and hotel quarantine expenditure relating to international repatriates, seasonal workers, and Antarctic expeditioners is reflected under Emergency Accommodation Support.

8.    The decrease in Children Services in 2021‑22 primarily reflects the profile of funding for Out of Home Care provided in the 2020‑21 Budget. This is partly offset by additional funding provided in the 2021election commitments and Other initiatives. The variation in the Forward Estimates primarily reflects the profile of additional funding for Out of Home Care.

Notes:

1.    The 2021‑22 target for these measures is a projection rather than a target, reflecting the different processes including trend analysis which were used for some measures to identify relevant values.

2.    Figures for 2018‑19 are partial year, as the Strong Families, Safe Kids Advice and Referral Line only commenced in December 2018.

3.    The 2020‑21 actuals are preliminary.

4.    This measure is the number of referrals from the Advice and Referral Line to the Child Safety Service for a Child Safety Assessment.

5.    Prior to 2021‑22, the Average daily children pending Child Safety Service assessment target measure was based on the number of cases rather than children. The 2021‑22 target has been revised to reflect the number of children in 20 cases (families), which equates to approximately 60 children.

6.    From 2020‑21 this performance measure only calculates time taken to complete an assessment once the matter has been referred to the Child Safety Service for a full child safety assessment.

7.    The counting rules for this measure are changed for the 2021‑22 Budget chapter to better reflect case plan management, and have been applied retrospectively for 2018‑19 and 2019‑20. The measure reports the proportion of children on care and protection orders who have a case and care plan developed and approved.

8.    The target for this measure corresponds to the latest national average which increased to 3.5 per cent in 2019‑20. Foster care households with five or more foster children is reported as at 30 June of the given financial year.

9.    The counting rules for these measures have been revised for 2020‑21 to include the last day of each episode of supervision.

10.  Re‑assignment of Workforce Development staff to frontline Child Safety Service work as part of COVID‑19 response resulted in reduced capacity to complete scheduled Quality Appraisals in 2019‑20.


 

Performance Information Comments

Children Services

The Strong Families Safe Kids reform represents the Tasmanian Government’s long‑term commitment to prioritise the safety and wellbeing of children and young people in Tasmania. Investments in the Advice and Referral Line, intensive family preservation and early intervention, a focus on permanency and stability for children and young people in Out of Home Care and cross agency collaboration is delivering improved outcomes for children, young people and their families.

Youth Justice

The number of young people engaged with Community or Custodial Youth Justice Services is predominantly influenced by external services. The factors affecting activity levels include referral practices and diversionary programs implemented by Tasmania Police, as well as the effectiveness of prosecutions and sentencing options selected by the Courts.

Notes:

1.    The 2021‑22 target reflects new social housing supply being delivered by community housing providers and the transfer of further stock for management under the Better Housing Futures Program. This is reflected against the whole housing portfolio including all housing types where the Director of Housing has an interest. The indicator has been renamed to reflect that it no longer only applies to social housing.

2.    This indicator includes applicants housed into public or community housing from the Housing Register. The 2020‑21 actual was influenced by the COVID‑19 pandemic moratorium on rental increases and evictions that reduced turnover in the private sector, leading to fewer exits from public housing. The tight private rental market also contributed to this.

3.    Private Rental Assistance has been trending down with the increase in assistance through other programs such as Rapid Rehousing and Private Rental Incentives. As a result, the 2021‑22 target reflects trends in actual assistance, as well as recent significant investment in private rental assistance.

4.    The 2021‑22 target has been calculated differently to previous years targets, with the target now reflecting how Tasmania is performing compared with other jurisdictions. The target is set at 25 per cent below the national average for the proportion of applicants versus size of housing portfolio. Tasmania is generally performing much better when compared to other jurisdictions. Latest data from 2019‑20 shows that the applicants as a proportion of the housing portfolio in Tasmania was 26.7 per cent, compared to the national average of 48.9 per cent. If Tasmania’s proportion was equivalent to the national average, it would result in more than 6 700 applicants on the Housing Register.

5.    This performance indicator has been amended from previously only applying to public housing applicants, to applicants housed in all social housing. As such, figures are not comparable to previously reported figures.

6.    Figures from previous years have been updated to reflect comparable data based on 2019‑20 dollars. The 2020‑21 actuals were not available from the Report on Government Services at the time of reporting. The 2020‑21 actual will be published in the Report on Government Services in January 2022.

7.    The 2021‑22 target of 28.0 days turnaround has been agreed at a National level. Tasmania has achieved positive turnaround times well below the target in the past three years. The 2020‑21 figure fluctuated during the month of June 2021, with figures having been much lower on average during the year.

Performance Information Comments

The Tasmanian Government’s housing plan is delivering more homes for Tasmanians in need. Record investment of $300 million through Tasmania’s Affordable Housing Action Plan 1 and 2 and Community Housing Growth Program will help around 5 000 Tasmanian households out of housing stress or homelessness by 30 June 2023. This includes around 2 350 new social housing dwellings that will be completed by 30 June 2023.

The 2021‑22 Budget invests an additional $315 million into social and affordable housing and homelessness across the state, bringing total investment to over $615 million through these housing capital programs. This will provide a total of 3 500 new social houses to be built from 2021 through to 2027.

A range of housing and homelessness initiatives will be supported through the $2 million investment towards the development of a comprehensive long‑term Tasmanian Housing Strategy.

Since the commencement of the Affordable Housing Strategy in 2015, 1 105 new long term homes have been built, which includes 972 social housing properties and 133 units of supported accommodation, including 298 in the past year. An additional 69 units of homeless accommodation have been completed for Tasmanians who are experiencing or face homelessness. There are currently a further 1 063 long term homes and units of homeless accommodation in the pipeline.

All up, a total of 2 881 households have been assisted into affordable homes. This includes the new supply of affordable lots and homes outlined above, as well as helping households into safe and affordable housing through initiatives like HomeShare, Streets Ahead, Private Rental Incentives and Rapid Rehousing. This information is reported monthly on the new Housing Dashboard on the Department’s website.

It has continued to be a challenging environment in relation to the COVID‑19 pandemic. The Department has been guided closely by emergency management provisions to ensure that rental protections were in place for vulnerable Tasmanians. Policies were also introduced to assist people to maintain stable housing during the pandemic such as rent freezes and moratorium on evictions. This saw less movement in and out of public housing and private rental properties.

There were additional programs funded to prevent housing stress and homelessness. The Government committed almost $4.3 million towards homelessness responses with COVID‑19 Response and Recovery Measures funding in April 2020 to provide prevention and response programs for people at risk of homelessness.

The Community Housing Growth Program (CHGP) is the next step in growing social housing and the role of community housing providers in Tasmania. It will build on and improve Better Housing Futures and will transfer a further 2 000 properties statewide to registered community housing providers. Critically, the CHGP also includes a growth strategy with the release of around $100 million in capital grants to construct social housing that will contribute to Tasmania’s social and economic recovery from COVID‑19.

In addition, stock owned by the Director of Housing is used to deliver a range of housing programs that are managed by non‑government organisations including additional community housing and supported accommodation. It is proposed that around 56 per cent of Director of Housing owned properties will be managed by non‑government organisations from 2021‑22 onwards.

The management of social housing by the community sector results in many positive outcomes including access to Commonwealth Rent Assistance and GST savings which allows for greater investment in maintenance and the upgrade of social housing properties. Under new long‑term agreements, community housing providers will be able to access a total of around $300 million in Commonwealth Rent Assistance to improve homes and build more homes. There is also greater flexibility in supporting tenants with special needs, the ability to provide a social mix of tenants and a range of community initiatives.


 

Output Group 4:    Disability Services and Community Development

4.1 Community Services

This Output provides services relating to planning, developing and managing family and community support services throughout the State. This includes funding for the Neighbourhood Houses Program, integrated family support services, the gambling support program and a range of other counselling and support services. All of these services are provided by community sector organisations.

4.2 Disability Services

The National Disability Insurance Scheme is one of the most complex and important reforms seen in Australia in recent years.

Tasmania fully transitioned into the NDIS on 1 July 2019. Since this time, specialist disability supports are funded by the NDIS and administered by the National Disability Insurance Agency. As of 1 July 2019, the majority of the existing clients of the State‑funded specialist disability services had transitioned to the NDIS and the Department had ceased funding providers to deliver specialist disability supports.

The specialist disability supports provided by the NDIS scheme complement mainstream services provided by the Australian and state and territory governments, such as health, education, housing, transport and safety.

The full scheme Bilateral Agreement between the Australian Government and the State of Tasmania on the NDIS outlines the ongoing funding arrangements. From 1 July 2019, Tasmania committed to a fixed funding contribution. The Australian Government contributes the total cost of administration of the Scheme and will fully provide for all Australian Government financial contributions.

The Tasmanian Government continues to provide:

·       advocacy funding;

·       children’s therapy mainstream component;

·       mainstream services such as health, education and justice; and

·       continuity of support for people eligible under the Tasmanian Disability Services Act 2011 but not eligible for the NDIS.

With the advent of full NDIS, the role of the State Government changed to the delivery of strategic policy; regulation, including the continued authorisation of restrictive practices under the Disability Services Act; and continued collaboration with people with disability, their families, carers and providers. Importantly the State Government remains a key stakeholder of the NDIS. As such, the State Government has a governance role which includes working with the NDIA to agree policy direction, and an operational role to resolve implementation issues and improve the interface with mainstream services, and to monitor the delivery of the scheme in Tasmania to achieve the best possible outcomes for Tasmanians.

4.3 Community Development ‑ Policy Advice and Ongoing Community Development

This Output supports community capacity building through the provision of policy advice to Government and the administration of a diverse range of grant programs to meet the needs of Tasmanians.

Initiatives delivered through this Output include policy development (and some associated grant programs) such as Accessible Island: Tasmania’s Disability Framework for Action 2018‑2021; the Carers Policy and Action Plan 2021‑24; Strong, Liveable Communities: Tasmania’s Active Ageing Plan 2017‑2022; and the Tasmanian Multicultural Policy and Action Plan 2019‑2022. The Output works closely with, and administers funding to, peak bodies including Council on the Ageing Tasmania, Youth Network of Tasmania, Volunteering Tasmania, Carers Tasmania, Multicultural Council of Tasmania, and the Tasmanian Men’s Shed Association.

Executive support is also provided to the Premier’s Disability Advisory Council, the Carer Issues Reference Group, the LGBTIQ+ whole‑of‑government Reference Group and the Multicultural Consultative Reference Group.

The Output is responsible for administering the Companion Card and Seniors Card programs.

4.4 Aboriginal Affairs

This Output aims to improve social, cultural, and economic outcomes for Tasmanian Aboriginal people and promote greater understanding and respect of Aboriginal culture. It provides the governance for the implementation of the Government’s Aboriginal affairs policies and programs, along with administration of a range of funding agreements with Tasmanian Aboriginal community organisations. Key aspects of this work include working with Tasmanian Aboriginal organisations, the Australian Government, other jurisdictions, and the Coalition of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Peak Organisations, to deliver the Tasmanian Implementation Plan under the National Agreement on Closing the Gap.

4.5 Women’s Policy

This Output contributes to the development and implementation of policy that increases social and economic participation of women and girls, and promotes gender equity and opportunities for women’s leadership and participation, financial security, safety, and health and wellbeing. Initiatives delivered through this Output include the Tasmanian Women’s Strategy and related action plans, the Women on Boards Strategy and scholarships for women’s leadership development, and an associated grant programs for International Women’s Day. This Output will deliver 2021 election commitments to increase women’s economic participation, including the development of a Modern Workplaces Framework, a Women in Building and Construction Strategy, a Girls in Property Pilot Program, and the Women’s Workforce Participation initiative, including the inaugural Supporting Women to Succeed Industry Grant Program, to encourage more women into non‑traditional fields of employment.

Executive support is also provided to the Tasmanian Women’s Council.

4.6 Veterans’ Affairs

This Output supports and acknowledges the role of Tasmanian veterans and ex‑serving personnel through policy advice, grant programs, commemorative activities and events. This Output is responsible for the delivery of the Teddy Sheean VC Memorial Grants Program, the administration of funding agreements with a number of ex‑serving organisations to deliver programs that support veterans’ wellbeing, and the continued delivery of the Frank MacDonald Memorial Prize.

This Output is responsible for intergovernmental work to progress national initiatives, such as the work of the National Commissioner for Defence and Veteran Suicide Prevention and the Royal Commission into Defence and Veteran Suicide.

This Output works closely with, and administers funding to, RSL Tasmania as the peak body for veterans. Executive support is also provided to the Veteran’s Reference Group.

4.7 Sport and Recreation

This Output contributes to a number of Tasmanian Government objectives through the delivery of a range of policies, programs and services to encourage all Tasmanians to participate in sport, recreation and physical activity, including the administration of a diverse range of funding agreements and grants programs. Some of the key deliverables include: increasing the capacity and governance capability of sporting organisations; developing and implementing plans to increase participation in safe, fair and inclusive sport and recreation by all Tasmanians; delivering the Ticket to Play and Improving the Playing Field programs; and leading the planning and development of facilities and infrastructure to meet contemporary sport and recreations needs. The Output is also responsible for providing the best possible opportunities for Tasmania’s elite athletes in support of their performances at international events, with a focus on sports that compete at the Olympic or Paralympic Games, Commonwealth Games and World Championships.

Notes:

1.    This is a new performance measure in 2021‑22. It replaces the previous measure: Organisations scheduled to receive a Quality and Safety Review within the financial year. There are currently 58 contracted providers. The 2019‑20 figure is based on meetings with 59 contracted providers. The 2020‑21 funding agreement meetings were impacted by the COVID‑19 pandemic. 2020‑21 figures are actuals to March 2021 as June data was not available at the time of writing.

2.    Due to the completion of the transition to full scheme NDIS, the Disability Services measures have been replaced with measures that are relevant to Tasmania’s participation in the NDIS. 2020‑21 figures are actuals to March 2021 as June data was not yet available at the time of writing.

3.    The number of authorised restrictive practices is calculated as the number of unique people with an authorised restrictive practice as a percentage of the total number of active NDIS participants. This activity is a requirement under the Disability Services Act and a commitment under the National Framework for Reducing and Eliminating the Use of Restrictive Practices in the Disability Service Sector.

4.    Targets for the Seniors Card Program and Companion Card Program reflect the likely ongoing impact of the COVID‑19 pandemic on the issuing of cards.

5.    This performance measure is to be reviewed to consider the Reset initiatives and new commitments under the National Agreement on Closing the Gap to better reflect the full range of activities and services being undertaken by the Government.

6.    This is a new performance measure. The Frank MacDonald Memorial Prize is an essay competition for Tasmanian Year 9 students. The Department of Communities Tasmania and the Department of Education jointly deliver the FMMP.

7.    This is a new performance measure. The Teddy Sheean VC Memorial Grants Program is held over two rounds each financial year.

8.    As Tasmanian athletes were unable to access international level competition during 2020‑21, this performance measure cannot be meaningfully assessed for 2020‑21.


Output Group 5:       Safe Homes, Families, Communities

5.1 Safe Homes, Families, Communities: Tasmania’s action plan for family and sexual violence 2019‑2022

This Output facilitates the actions being delivered by Government agencies under Tasmania’s Family and Sexual Violence Action Plan 2019‑2022, which is the coordinated, whole‑of‑government response to family violence and sexual violence in Tasmania.

The Safe Homes, Families, Communities initiatives are focused on changing the attitudes and behaviours that lead to family violence and sexual violence; supporting families and individuals affected by family violence and sexual violence; and strengthening the Government’s legal responses to family violence and sexual violence to hold perpetrators to account for their violent behaviours.

This Output also includes funding for family violence responses outside of the Action Plan, including funding to support Project O, a primary prevention project in the North West, and additional funds received under the National Partnership Agreement on COVID‑19 Domestic and Family Violence responses.

Notes:

1.    The 2021‑22 Budget provides additional funding of $15 million for the Derwent Entertainment Centre and Multi‑Sports Facility, taking the total allocation for the project to $83.5 million.

2.    These projects are 2021 election commitments.

Ashley Youth Detention Centre Redevelopment

Funding has been provided for a major redesign and upgrade to the AYDC facility to make it fit‑for‑purpose, and to continue to improve the model of care, as part of a modern, integrated statewide therapeutic youth justice model.

Derwent Entertainment Centre and Multi‑Sports Facility

Funding of $83.5 million is provided for the redevelopment of the Derwent Entertainment Centre and development of a Multi‑Sports Facility. An investment of $63.5 million will be made in the DEC to upgrade the facility, including state of the art audio‑visual experiences and brand new amenities, allowing for the hosting of NBL games, conventions and other major events, including concerts. Funding of $20 million is provided for the design and construction of a contemporary Multi‑Sport Facility.

The four‑court facility will address a long‑standing need for additional indoor sports facilities in the greater Hobart area by catering to a variety of court‑based sports, gymnastics and other community events.

Silverdome Capital Upgrade

Funding has been provided in 2021‑22 to undertake immediate upgrading of the Silverdome to commence the establishment of a four‑court indoor netball stadium.

Community Housing Growth Program

Funding is allocated to the Community Housing Growth Program over three years, commencing in 2021‑22. This program will support the delivery of up to 1 000 new social housing dwellings and existing initiatives aimed at increasing the supply of social and affordable housing across Tasmania.

Extended Social Housing Build

This program will extend the building program of new social housing. This program will build 2 000 new homes by 2027, in addition to the 1 500 to be built by June 2023 from existing programs. This will bring the total to 3 500 new homes by 2027. Funding of $190 million is allocated beyond the Forward Estimates to deliver this initiative.

Housing ‑ New Projects

Funding of $32.5 million is allocated in 2021‑22 for Housing Tasmania’s capital program. This includes $24.4 million in 2021‑22 made available under the former Commonwealth‑State Housing Agreement Debt Waiver Agreement.

CSHA Debt Waiver

The CSHA Debt Waiver has made available $58.4 million to be invested into a program of works through to June 2023. This is further supported with an additional $10 million allocated as part of the Government’s Construction Blitz to fast‑track some of these projects.

This includes $53.6 million to support 300 new social housing dwellings through:

·       grant funding for community housing providers to increase the supply of social housing; and

·       direct investment into construction and purchase of new social housing by Housing Tasmania.

Funding of $24.4 million in 2021‑22 under the CSHA Debt Waiver Agreement is provided to support the following projects:

·       construction of 15 new Transitional Youth units in Burnie;

·       development of 21 social housing units at Hopkins Street, Moonah; and

·       completion of 188 social housing units in areas of high need across Tasmania.

Supported Accommodation Facilities

Funding is provided for the construction of two new supported accommodation facilities for older Tasmanians in the North and North West of the State. The program will commence in 2023‑24, with expected completion in 2026‑27. Funding of $14 million is allocated beyond the Forward Estimates to complete this project.

Tasmania’s Affordable Housing Action Plan 2

Funding is allocated in 2021‑22 and 2022‑23 to continue the delivery of the second stage of Tasmania’s Affordable Housing Action Plan.

Youth Housing Initiatives ‑ Modular Youth Housing and Dispersed Youth Foyer

Funding of $5.2 million is provided for new youth housing and homelessness initiatives. An investment of $4.3 million will deliver modular youth housing for 16 to 24 year‑olds transitioning to independence from a variety of contexts, including exiting Ashley Youth Detention Centre, Out of Home Care or shelters. The initiative will provide 20 modular youth homes across four sites around the State. Funding will also be provided for new ‘Youth Coaches’ who will provide ‘readiness for independence’ support across key life domains including education, employment, health and wellbeing and community participation.

Funding of $1 million will provide a ‘Dispersed Youth Foyer’ initiative that will identify 10 Housing Tasmania properties suitable for conversion into three to four‑bedroom share housing properties for young people.

Notes:

1.    The increase in Appropriation revenue ‑ operating in 2021‑22 primarily reflects additional funding for 2021 election commitments and other key deliverables. The decrease across the Forward Estimates primarily reflects the completion of election commitments and fixed‑term funding.

2.   The decrease in Grants from 2021‑22 primarily relates to the completion of fixed term funding for the Public Building Maintenance Program; the NPA on COVID‑19 Domestic and Family Violence Responses; the NPA on Remote Indigenous Housing; and funding from the Digital Transformation Priority Expenditure Program for the Integrated Client Information Program.

2.    The decrease in Sales of goods and services in 2021‑22 primarily reflects the decrease in Housing Tasmania rent revenue from 2021‑22 onwards, due to the transfer of Housing assets to community housing organisations.

3.    The decrease in Employee benefits in 2021‑22 primarily reflects a correction to the Department’s budget allocation between expense categories. The decrease is offset by an increase in Grants and subsidies.

3.    The increase in Depreciation and amortisation in 2021‑22 primarily reflects changes to the recognition of assets due to a change in AASB 1059 Service Concession Arrangement: Grantors. In 2014, management of some Housing Tasmania properties was transferred to community housing organisations and the assets were removed from the Statement of Financial Position. For 2022, the change in the accounting standard requires that the assets be reinstated to the Department’s Statement of Financial Position.

4.    The increase in Supplies and consumables in 2021‑22 primarily reflects additional expenditure relating to 2021 election commitments and Other initiatives funded in the 2021‑22 Budget.

5.    The increase in Grants and subsidies in 2021‑22 primarily reflects funding for the Tasmanian Hotel Quarantine Extension and Royal Agricultural Society of Tasmania Hobart Showground Redevelopment, and the reclassification from purchases of non‑financial assets to grant expenditure for the components Derwent Entertainment Centre and Multi‑Sports Facility that are being delivered by State Growth.

6.    Borrowing costs consist of the interest component of the Department’s lease agreements reflected in accordance with AASB 16 Leases.

Notes:

1.    The increase in Sport and Recreation and Community Development in 2021‑22 primarily reflects additional funding for 2021 election commitments. The decrease over the Forward Estimates primarily reflects the completion of election commitments and one‑off grants.

2.    The increase in Aboriginal Affairs in 2021‑22 primarily relates to Other initiatives funded in the 2021‑22 Budget, including Aboriginal Reconciliation and the Local Community Facilities Fund.

3.    The increase in Women’s Policy and Housing Services reflects additional funding for key deliverables.

4.    The increase in Disability Services primarily reflects Tasmania’s contribution towards the NDIS and additional funding for the disability services that remain the responsibility of the Tasmanian Government.

5.    The increase in Veterans’ Affairs in 2021‑22 reflects additional funding for 2021 election commitments.

6.    The increase in Community Services in 2021‑22 primarily reflects additional funding for key deliverables, including Neighbourhood Houses and for the Prevention of Elder Abuse. The decrease over the Forward Estimates reflects the completion of key deliverables.

7.    The decrease in the Community Support Fund and increase in Emergency Accommodation Support reflects a reclassification of the funding associated with the management of COVID‑19 hotel quarantine. Hotel quarantine funding relating to domestic travellers is reflected under the Community Support Fund and hotel quarantine funding relating to International repatriates, seasonal workers, and Antarctic expeditioners is reflected under Emergency Accommodation Support.

8.    The decrease in Children Services in 2021‑22 primarily reflects the profile of additional funding for Out of Home Care provided in the 2020‑21 Budget as well as a reallocation of Department overheads. This is partly offset by additional funding provided for 2021 election commitments and Other initiatives funded in the 2021‑22 Budget. The variation in the Forward Estimates primarily reflects the profile of additional funding for Out of Home Care.

Notes:

1.    The variation in Cash and deposits primarily reflects revised estimates based on 30 June 2020 actuals.

2.    The increase in Equity investments primarily reflects the State of the State Commitment for HomeShare ‑ Additional Contribution expenditure over the 2021‑22 Budget and Forward Estimates.


 

3.    The variations in 2022 reflects changes to the recognition of assets due to a change in AASB 1059 Service Concession Arrangement: Grantors. In 2014, management of some Housing Tasmania properties was transferred to community housing organisations and the assets were removed from the Statement of Financial Position. For 2022, the change in the accounting standard requires that the assets be reinstated to the Department’s Statement of Financial Position. The increase over the Forward Estimates primarily reflects additional capital expenditure related to Housing construction programs.

4.    The decrease in Infrastructure in 2022 reflects a change in treatment for the recognition of components of the Derwent Entertainment Centre and Multi‑Sports Facility being delivered by State Growth. These costs are now recognised as grant payments.

5.    The increase in Intangibles in 2022 primarily reflects expenditure related to the Integrated Client Information Program, funded from the Digital Transformation Priority Expenditure Program.

6.    The variation in Interest bearing liabilities reflects the recognition of the Department’s lease related costs in accordance with AASB 16 Leases.
