* Variation between 2019–20 Budget and 2019–20 Actual

The 2019–20 Actual total comprehensive result is a surplus of $59.207 million, which is $81.688 million favourable when compared with the 2019–20 Budget. This is primarily due to additional appropriation provided to the department during 2019–20 to manage timing differences between accrual recognition and cash flows.

* Variation between 2019–20 Budget and 2019–20 Actual

The increase in net assets between the 2019–20 Budget and 2019–20 Actual result is mainly due to the decrease in current (short term) liabilities associated with accrued expenditure and decreases in non-current (longer term) liabilities relating to employee leave provisions.
